Gender Announcement Ideas – Balloons
Try filling a large box with blue (for a boy) or pink (for a girl) helium inflated balloons. Make a sign or write directly on the box, “Is it a boy or girl?”
Open the box and have someone snap a photo for a cute gender announcement photo that you can add to a custom baby photo announcement from PurpleTrail.com.
For a simpler option, try grasping a bundle of pink or blue balloons instead. They will add a pop of color to your photos, if you’ll be taking any, while helping to accentuate your special news.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Glitter
Cup some pink or blue glitter in the palms of your hands. Blow the glitter at the camera to reveal the gender of your baby — blue if your baby’s a boy and pink if it’s a girl.
You can do the same thing with blue and pink confetti too.
Add your fun photo to a custom faux glitter baby announcement card from PurpleTrail.com to further embellish your special news.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Mustaches & Bows
Snap a photo of your belly with a large mustache painted across it to reveal that you’ll be having a boy. Attach a large pink bow to your belly if it’s a girl.
You can do the same thing with your ultrasound photo. Add a tiny mustache near your baby boy’s neck or add a tiny tiara or bow near the top of your baby girl’s head.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Shoes & Props
Place a small pair of pink or blue sneakers on your belly to reveal your baby’s gender. Or, you can use other props — crowns and tiaras would be especially cute.
Other props you can use include footballs inscribed with “it’s a boy,” pink or blue umbrellas inscribed with your baby’s gender, and even a tub filled with pink or blue ice cream can be used to showcase your special news.
Get creative! The possibilities are endless. Just make sure to choose a prop that makes sense — you don’t want to confuse anyone.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Signs & Banners
There’s no better way to clearly announce your baby’s gender than with a simple DIY sign or banner. You can inscribe the sign with a simple message, like “It’s a boy!”
Or you can go even further and share your baby’s name and how many weeks pregnant you are in addition to your baby’s gender.
You can make your DIY sign out of anything. Chalkboards are an easy option that you can do a lot with. Simple paper signs, wooden baby blocks, or even hand signs also will work.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Body Paint
Showcase your baby’s gender with body paint. You can paint hand prints or footprints in pink or blue directly on your belly. Or you can have your husband or child do the honors with their hands.
In addition to hand prints and footprints, you can also paint a message on your belly that reveals your baby’s gender or you can paint a tiny crown or tiara, pink or blue hearts, or even the feminine or masculine symbol.
If you’d rather not apply the paint directly on your skin, wear a white tank top and paint on that instead.
Gender Announcement Ideas – Holiday Photos
If you’ll be announcing your baby’s gender around a holiday, try including the occasion into your gender reveal photos.
If it’s near Christmas, wrap a tree in in pink or blue Christmas lights. Snap a photo next to it and add your photo to a festive holiday gender announcement card from PurpleTrail.com.
If it’s near Easter, you can surround yourself with lots of pink or blue peeps. Snap a photo and add it to a custom gender announcement card. Include wording that says “We took a ‘peep’ and it’s a boy/girl!”
If it’s near Halloween, carve a pumpkin with a message that reveals your baby’s gender and snap a photo next to it.
Including a photo of either pink or blue fireworks in your gender reveal announcement is a cute way to embellish your special news if it’s near the 4th of July.
