Ultimate Guide to Gender Reveal Party Gift Ideas!

A list of 20 gender reveal gift ideas to make shopping for the special day easy! Soon to be parents will love any of these gifts!

Gender reveal parties are becoming more and more popular, and with good reason! They’re a fun way to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a new baby and bring loved ones together.

A gender reveal party is really what the title says it is! Either the expectant parents or a family member can throw a little or big party to announce the gender of their baby. Usually, it’s a surprise to everyone, except one person!

After an ultrasound, the technician can write down the gender of the baby on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. The expectant mother then can give the envelope with the sex of their baby to close friends who want to be involved in planning the party.

That person then will get a gender reveal cake or balloons with the gender inside, ie pink or blue color of the cake or pink or blue confetti inside a balloon that will be popped.

So when the cake is cut or the balloon is popped, everyone will learn the gender of the little love at once!

20 Perfect Gender Reveal Gift Ideas

Most of these baby gift ideas also would make a great baby shower gift.

We have added some links to some of our favorite gifts if you'd like to check them out!

Baby Blankets

One of my go-to baby gifts is a baby blanket. It's a heartwarming and practical gift that will keep the little one cozy and warm. 

Whether you opt for a soft, luxurious fabric or a knitted masterpiece, you can purchase or make a blanket in gender neutral colors.

Not only will the parents-to-be appreciate the thoughtfulness, but it's also a great keepsake that can be cherished for years to come.

Gender-Neutral Clothing

Baby Clothes are a practical and cute gift for any baby. Deck out the little one in adorable onesies, tiny shoes, or even a snuggly hooded towel.

Choose colors and patterns that are gender neutral or buy for both genders and return the ones you don't end up giving as party gifts!

You'll be sure to elicit some "awws" from the party guests. 

Diaper Cake

A gender-neutral yet adorable gift idea is a diaper cake. No, it's not an edible cake, but rather a creative arrangement of diapers that resembles a tiered cake.

You can further personalize it by adding baby essentials like onesies, bibs, pacifiers, and small toys. Not only is it a practical gift, but it also serves as a charming centerpiece at the gender reveal party.

Trust me, the parents-to-be will appreciate the thoughtfulness and the countless diapers!

Baby Books

Reading to babies is a great way to stimulate their development and create a strong bond between parent and child.

You can get a baby book in a gender-neutral color and write a sweet message inside the cover.

It's a thoughtful gift that the parents can enjoy with their baby for years to come.

It's hard to narrow down baby books, but here are a few that were my favorite!

Baby Milestone

Baby milestone cards/blankets/blocks are a cute and creative way to capture special moments in the baby's first year of life.

Etsy has a great selection of all different kinds here.

Subscription Boxes

Why settle for a one-time gift when you can offer a surprise that keeps on giving? Subscription boxes tailored to parents and babies are becoming increasingly popular.

Consider gifting a subscription to a baby clothing box, a toy box, or even a parenting book club.

Every month, the parents-to-be will receive a delightful package in the mail, creating excitement in the coming months!

Night Light

A night light that also plays white noise is something that's a good idea for all babies, regardless of the baby's gender. You can find some good options on Amazon.

Self - Care Gift

Another thoughtful way to pamper the mom to be is to give a self-care gift.

Give a spa or bath basket of goodies to relax the expectant mom and even the new dad!

Add a bath bomb, lavender scented room spray, sleep mask, and bottle of sparkling apple cider (and maybe a bottle of wine for after the baby is born!)

Gift Cards

When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a gift card.

Opt for a popular baby store or a general-purpose card that allows the parents-to-be to choose what they need or desire most.

From setting up the baby's nursery to baby gear, they'll be able to shop to their hearts' content and pick items that suit their style and preferences before the baby's arrival.
