by Martha T. Blogger, Mystery Shopper

Gender reveal parties are a newer concept comparatively. Yet, they have gained momentum in a short period as a pleasurable way for the parents to disclose the gender of their unborn baby to the world. They may include celebrations such as a surprise gender reveal to the attendees, followed by games and treats.

Since gender reveal parties have not been around for a long time, many people are not aware of gender reveal party etiquettes.

Have you been invited to a gender reveal party? Do you bring a gift to a gender reveal party? This guide will help you to quickly learn the needed etiquettes for a gender reveal party.

Hosts of a gender reveal party

A gender reveal party is hosted explicitly by the expecting parents even if they have handed out the responsibility for the gender reveal to a friend or a family. The party's setup is similar to that of a backyard barbeque and hence, should be treated casually. 

Invitees to a gender reveal party

Most of the gender reveal parties are limited to the closest kith and kin. But, the ways of the celebration are entirely dependent on the expecting couple.

Most baby showers are reserved for the mother and her girlfriends. So, more male counterparts can be invited to a gender reveal party.

The time when a gender reveal party is typically held

Ideally, the gap between a gender reveal party and a baby shower should last a few months. The baby shower is generally held in the third trimester of the pregnancy. Modeling on this, a gender reveal party can fall anywhere in the third month of the pregnancy. But, it is all up to the expecting parents whether they would prefer a joint gender reveal party and a baby shower.

Gifts to be brought to a gender reveal party

It is an exciting time to get ready for a new family member. A gift can be a small token of your appreciation that will contribute to the happiness of their celebration. A gift, by no sense, is necessary for a gender reveal party. But, such thoughtful gestures are always welcomed.

Since you do not know about the gender of the baby, you can give gifts to the to be a mother.

Here is a list of gifts that can be brought to a gender reveal party even when you do not know the gender of the baby.

Plush Robe

To assist the mom in being for her upcoming challenging but beautiful days, gift her a plush robe that she can cozy with after a long, hot shower. This will also be a subtle reminder for her to focus on her needs for relaxation as well.

Sweets and Treats Basket:

Cravings always accompany pregnancies for sweets. Hence, this is a safe option for a gift. You may buy various kinds of sweets, including salty ones. Decorate a basket and fill it up with sweets.

Spa Basket

Another great way to encourage the mother for a relaxing time is to gift her a spa basket. If you are aware of a neighborhood spa she prefers to frequent, you surprise her with a spa certificate.


A nice piece of jewelry is a considerate way to remind her of her journey towards motherhood so far. You can look for a timeless piece like a ring or a pendant symbol for her new family. Apart from that, anything that suits her style will also be hugely appreciated.


A mug is small and easy that is not too over the top. You can present this gift to the couple if you are not very closely associated with them.

Final Words

A new baby is not only exciting addition to the parents but friends and family as well. When you are invited to a gender reveal party, feel lucky because you are one of the closest acquaintances of the parents. Hence, a sweet gift to the couple will only be a way to display your love for them.
