Personalise your personal or corporate gifts with custom wine labels.
The internet is abuzz with all sorts of stories and reels. One of the things you will see is a gender reveal party. Parents-to-be have thought of different ways to reveal the gender of their baby, with one being more creative than the other.
If a friend has invited you to one such party, it is expected that you bring a gift. It does not have to be expensive though! Instead, you can explore quite a few thoughtful, fun, and personalised gender reveal gift ideas.
10 gift ideas for a gender reveal party
Whether it be clothes and toys for the baby or a lovely new dress for the mum-to-be, there are several exciting gifts that you can bring to a gender reveal party, such as:
1. Maternity Clothes
Gender reveal parties are not only for the baby. Mums should take centre stage too, considering she is the one with the baby bump. So, let her know that she is a special part of this event by giving her some gifts. Stylish maternity clothes are something the mother-to-be will surely appreciate and can help her be comfortable throughout her pregnancy. Your friend will love this thoughtful gift and think of you every time she wears it.
If you aren’t sure about her size and the styles she likes, you can include a gift receipt so that she can exchange it for something that fits.
2. Foot soak
We all need a little pampering, especially mums-to-be. A nice, relaxing foot soak is one way to help them relieve their stress. A soothing foot soak can also help to alleviate body pain, which most pregnant women feel. Your friend will thank you for this thoughtful gift. You can give her a foot soap that you made yourself, or you can buy some from the supermarket and other retailers.
3. Handmade toys
Everyone is most likely excited about the coming baby. You can show your excitement by creating your own gift for the gender reveal party. Hand-crocheted toys, like an elephant or a giraffe, will do the trick. Not only are they adorable, but they are also sweet reminders of your love for your friend’s little one.
If you decide to make the toys, be sure to choose gender-neutral colours. This way, you won’t have to worry about having the wrong colour if the baby is a boy or a girl. Neutral colours will also match the nursery and the baby’s clothes.
4. Custom-designed onesies
There’s bound to be one or two friends who will give onesies for the baby. Don’t let this stop you from getting one yourself. But rather than off-the-shelf onesies, make your gift a bit more special by decorating it by hand. This will work well with white or other neutral colours. You can sew in a cute animal patch, or a special message for mum or the baby.
5. Personalised wine bottles
Bringing a bottle of wine to a gender reveal party may not be conventional, but it can be a gift that the parents-to-be will love you more for – especially when the time comes to celebrate the birth of their child. You can make it extra special by having a personalised wine bottle made just for them – complete with the year of their baby’s birth.
While you’re at it, why not give one each to Mum and Dad? You can give them each a bottle of their favourite wine with custom labels.
6. Dinner gift card
While some people will have you believe that pregnancy is the most amazing thing in the whole wide world, having a baby is not a walk in the park. It comes with countless stresses, not to mention apprehension. Good thing, a gift card for a romantic dinner or a relaxing night out could take some of that anxiety off.
A dinner gift card will make a sweet gender reveal present and will surely be appreciated by a mum-to-be with a growing appetite.
7. Couple’s massage gift card
Speaking of taking some of the stress off the parents-to-be, a relaxing massage will also do the trick. Make sure to give a couple’s massage gift certificate so that they can have their “us” time, while waiting for the baby to pop out.
8. Matching Coffee Mugs
New parents especially need time off to unwind and having a good cup of coffee is one way of slowing down. So, why not give them mugs to help them enjoy their coffee or hot cocoa more?
Make it a matching pair to commemorate becoming a new mum and dad. A simple white mug with Mummy and Daddy written on each one will be much appreciated. Don’t forget to add the baby’s year of birth as well.
9. Calming lavender
Known for its calming effects, lavender is one gift that your friend will want to receive. Whether it’s in fresh or oil form, lavender will work its magic on the mum-to-be. You can choose lavender soap, lotion, foot soak, linen spray, bath bomb, or aromatherapy kit. Or you can bring a beautiful lavender plant in a pot or a vase of fresh lavender flowers.
10. Something for the dad-to-be
More men are becoming involved in these gender reveals, so expect the dad-to-be will be present at the party. Bring him a gift, like a New Dad shirt, that he can use at the party. Mums usually get a lot of attention at these events, so you’ll be surprising everyone by bringing dad a little something that will help him to not feel left out.
