Gender Reveal Party

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times of life, and an expecting parent who decides to learn their baby’s sex will likely want to throw a gender reveal party. If you want to throw a big reveal before the birth, you’ll need clever invitations for the party, appropriately themed decorations, and some fun activities for the guests. At Shutterfly, we’ll help you throw a fun gender reveal party with personalized stationery, decorations, and more. If you’re attending a baby’s gender reveal, we’ll share some of our personalized baby gifts too.

Create Your Own Personalized Gender Reveal Party Invitations

There have to be guests for it to be a real gender reveal party, so the first step is getting some eye-catching gender reveal invitations. We have several customizable baby shower invites that can double as gender reveal invites, such as our Watercolor Reveal stationery. This is a stylish script invitation with a blue and pink watercolor design teasing the possibility of a gender reveal party for a boy or a gender reveal party for a girl. These invites to a baby shower gender reveal are printed on our finest cardstock for superior image quality and a luxurious feel, and you can personalize them with your honoree and event details.

Choose Exciting Gender Reveal Party Themes

A gender reveal party theme is a great way to make things more fun for yourself and guests, and you can let the theme guide your gender reveal decoration. A night sky theme is one of the more popular baby gender reveal ideas, and our bunting banners are fun to combine with balloons and confetti. Personalize these with three of your own photos, perhaps of a baby girl and a baby boy to keep guests wondering with your gender reveal party decorations. Combine these banners with our custom reveal party invites to keep a consistent theme.

Find Unique Gender Reveal Party Table Settings and Decorations 

Food and drinks are a crucial part of any party, and that includes gender reveal parties. Placing customized table setting items that are gender-neutral or that can keep guests guessing can be a fun idea for the baby’s gender reveal. If you happen to be hosting a holiday baby reveal, you could split a refreshment table with two of our unique table runners. Our custom designed runners can be the perfect pair for the grand reveal. Paired along with our cloth napkins make for good options to give to guests, and they come in baby blue and pink design colors ideal for a gender reveal party.

Shop Gender Reveal Party Gifts

Baby gifts are typically given at a baby shower, but you may choose to give gender-neutral reveal party gifts at a gender reveal party. We recommend a practical gift like one of our personalized baby blankets. We have plenty of designs like our Zoo Elephant Love baby blankets featuring a gray and off-white design with a cute mama and baby elephant. We also have the upload your own design baby blanket, which will let you customize with a special text message that fits either gender. Our Baby Gear cotton tote bag is also a fun gift that will get plenty of use once the parents start taking their baby with them wherever they go.

Plan Activities for a Fun Gender Reveal Party

Naturally, you’ll want a fun and exciting way to unveil the big news at your gender reveal party. Make the reveal into a fun activity with your family members and friends using some of our custom games and other gender reveal ideas. Here are a few of our suggestions for fun party games and activities.

Use Memory Games for the Big Moment at Your Gender Reveal Party

Drum up excitement during your gender reveal party by getting your guests in on the big reveal. Memory games and matching games are fun ways to participate in the reveal and offer some small prizes to the “winners.” Our custom memory card game is an easy way for everyone to submit their guess before the reveal. Customize the backs of two decks with blue and pink design colors, and leave a blank space on the front of each card for guests to write their names. At the end of the game, you can collect the “boy guesses” and “girl guesses” and announce which guests got them.

Design a Big Reveal Puzzle for Your Gender Reveal Party

If you’re having an intimate gender reveal party with just a few guests, then one of our personalizable Shutterfly puzzles can be a fun way to spend a few hours and make the gender reveal. Our Your Text Here puzzle is a great choice since pictures won’t give the reveal away too early, and you can select gender-neutral background colors to throw guests off the scent. Our puzzles come with up to 1,014 pieces, so you’ll be able to set the perfect challenge level for any number of guests.

Collect Gender Reveal Party Photos for a Special Photobook

Baby photo books are among the best ways to preserve those earliest memories with your child, and you can get started on their first photobook when you collect fun pictures from their gender reveal party. Include them as part of the first page of your baby photo books to show how many people were interested in learning about them for the first time. As you collect more photos after your baby is born, you can fill out the rest to make a first-year book of unforgettable memories.
