Unique Gender Reveal Gifts

These days it’s rare to not know the sex of your baby before it is born. A gender reveal party is an opportunity for parents-to-be to learn the sex of the baby and celebrate with their family and friends. And what better way to honor the gender reveal than with a few unique gifts?

Are Guests Required to Bring Gifts to a Gender Reveal? 

According to most etiquette sources, the answer is no. That means the host or parents-to-be should not expect any gifts and should not list registry information if sending a formal invitation. Gift-giving is typically done later in the pregnancy during a baby shower. 

Some parents, however, will combine both events into a single party and host a baby shower along with the gender reveal. In this case, you definitely need to bring a gift. If you’re unsure, check with the host or parents-to-be. 

That said, thoughtful gifts are always welcomed and appreciated. Preparing for a new baby is an exciting time, and unique gender reveal gifts help celebrate this momentous occasion! (And if you happen to be the parent-to-be who’s celebrating, just be sure to make time to write thank-you notes for the guests who gift you.)

What Types of Gifts Are Best for a Gender Reveal Party?

When in doubt, focus on a gift for the parent(s). If you aren’t sure whether the parents are planning on having a baby shower, it is also appropriate to get a gift for the baby. To be on the safe side, select gender-neutral options if you’re gifting baby.
