Don’t Want To Have A Gender Reveal Party? Try These Ideas Instead
Are you nearing your 20th week of pregnancy and your ultrasound appointment when you will finally find out your baby’s gender? If you are, you’re also probably starting to wonder whether or not you should do a gender reveal party. In this post, I will talk about what to do instead of a gender reveal party.
Pregnancy Reveal Party
If you haven’t told your family or close friends about your pregnancy yet, why not throw a simple dinner or brunch together with your closest family and friends, and announce the news to everyone at the same time? It’s much simpler (and requires much less effort) than throwing a gender reveal party, plus everyone in your close circle will LOVE the announcement and can share in your joy with you!
Gender Reveal Photoshoot
Like I’ve previously stated, gender reveal parties sometimes take way more effort than they need to. So, if you don’t want to exert too much effort, why not have a gender reveal photoshoot instead? You won’t have to worry about being a great hostess, nor would you have to worry about what to feed your guests, and you will have beautiful photos to boot! Here’s a couple of gender reveal photoshoots I am loving.
Social Media Pregnancy Reveal Reels
Take a few short clips of you and your growing belly, throw everything together and add music on Tiktok or Instagram Reels, and voila! You have a unique pregnancy reveal that everyone who’s following you can see! Plus, it’s such a great memory to look back on! Here’s the social media pregnancy reveal my husband and I did.
Reveal the Gender Privately Between You and Your Husband
If you are a private person, you can simply ask your OB to write the gender in an envelope for you and your partner to open together in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes, doing things with your partner is the best thing, and if you want to keep your baby’s gender reveal intimate, then that’s perfectly fine!
Let Your Parents Pop The Gender Reveal Poppers
I love this idea. Why not purchase a pair of gender reveal poppers, go to a park and let your parents (future grandparents) to do the honours of revealing the gender? That way they can take part in ‘revealing the gender’ of your future baby!
Bonus: Do Nothing
Who says you have to do a gender reveal at all? If you don’t want to find the gender until your baby’s birth, that’s fine, or if you just want to know right then and there during your doctor’s appointment, then so be it! Don’t let today’s trend dictate your pregnancy!
