This is such a simple idea, just head to the store and get some pink or blue ornaments! You can also just buy the clear ones and fill them with different stuff like the above pictures. Cute, simple, and it can be a keepsake for future Christmas trees!

We did this for our reveal. I brought a girl and a boy outfit to the fetal anatomy scan and had the tech put the right outfit in the box I brought and the other one in a black bag. My boyfriend carried them out because I was so psycho I knew the weight difference, LOL. You could also fill a bigger box or a gift sack with balloons or just tie a cute bow around your belly with the coordinating color!

New Years is a time for fireworks, sparklers, confetti, + champagne, which can also be made into gender reveals! The big ball pinata looks just like New Year’s Eve ball, and the confetti that comes out is even more perfect! You can make your own confetti poppers, too. Champagne fizzies are another great idea, they just change the color of your champagne – pretty awesome. If you’re a “go-big-or-go-home” type of person, then maybe fireworks would be good for you! Or you could just go with sparkers, probably cheaper + safer 😉

I hope you love these ideas! I love, love, love a good gender reveal party. It’s such an exciting time. Don’t worry, my posts will be longer and more thought out after the holidays. I am not kidding when I say I’m worn out. I was like panicking though this article wondering if I’d still have time to get the rest of my to-do list done today 🙁 Wish me luck! Have a great holiday everyone <3
