The most popular gender reveal ideas

Gender reveals are a relatively new and fun trend that has seen a huge rise in popularity over the last few years. Our Instagram feeds and YouTube channels have become a viewing platform for us to witness some amazing gender reveals around the world from the over the top, elaborate and big reveals to the more simple and intimate. We dare you not to get emotional watching these!

Of course, there are those couples who opt for anonymity or wish to keep the biological sex of their baby unknown until the birth. There are also those who don’t necessarily want to reveal the gender with specific colours or prefer gender-neutral colours. Whatever works best for you!

But for those of you who do want to find out or are thinking about planning a gender reveal party,  it’s an exciting way to gather all your loved ones in one room to  find out the biological sex of your baby and celebrate all together!

Whichever way you choose to celebrate or tell your loved ones, will be a special moment.

Firstly, how does it work?

Your first step is booking an ultrasound around your 20 week mark. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to know, then have your sonographer write down the sex and seal it an envelope. You can then choose a close friend or family member, give them the envelope so they can get started on the planning of your gender reveal party.  Alternatively, if the parents would like to know, then you can go ahead and plan the party yourselves!

We have listed seven of the most popular gender reveal party ideas below.

Gender Reveal Cake

Who doesn’t love cake? A treat that can be enjoyed by everyone, having a cake with either pink or blue filling (can be normal sugar filling, or filled with coloured m&ms or candy of your choice) and cutting in the middle to reveal the colour is a delicious way to surprise your guests.

Popping balloons

One that often comes with an apprehensive face (so be aware for photos before sticking in the pin). Popping balloons with pink or blue confetti inside is a cute and simple idea. There are so many beautiful gender-neutral balloons to choose from like gold, silver, white or yellow.

Gender reveal box

Fill a huge decorated box with pink or blue helium balloons. Once you’re ready for the reveal, take off the lid and watch your beautiful balloons release. This one is great for making the moment last a little longer as you watch them float into the sky!

Have fun with paint

This one is for those who dare to get a little messy. Whether you splash it out of a can, squirt the paint out of a water gun or drop them in water balloons, this is a fun and colourful way to splash the news!

Smoke guns or coloured powder

This one is to appease the sports enthusiasts out there (mostly the dads).  Fill your chosen ball (usually a football or rugby ball) with either blue or pink powder inside, give the ball a good hard kick to release the gender’s coloured powder. Smoke guns are also great for an outfoor gender reveal, especially those with big yards! 

Fortune cookies

Another great food option, fortune cookies is a really inventive way to do a reveal. People love novelty items especially at parties and it’s a great way to have your guests be involved in the moment of the reveal rather than just watching you. Make sure you have a designated cameraman though who unfortunately won’t be able to participate as they need to snap this fun group moment!


For those who want to plan a night time gender reveal soiree, then lighting sparklers is a great way to go. For the couples who know the gender, light your sparkler, and spell out “boy” or “girl” for everyone to see!  A gorgeous night time shot for your photo album and social media!

Am giving this testimony because am so happy, I want to thank Dr. Osasu for the great thing He has done in my life , He brought happiness back to my life, I never believed in spell casters until my life fell apart when my lover of 6 years decided to call it quit almost when we wanted to get married. I was so emotional breakdown to the extent i could not do anything reasonable again, after 2months in pain before an old friend of mine introduced me to a spell caster on line called Dr Osasu, this was after I have been scammed by various fake spell casters.

  2. You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga. 
      When I met Dr.Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until when I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me with child. He did the spell and sent me the natural herbs for fertility that I will use and immediately I used this medicine, I conceived. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl. Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful girl and I am happy in my marriage. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats App number +2348167159012.
