The guests actually decide whether or not to bring a gift. Neither way is wrong. The hosts probably won’t expect a gift because this type of party is just all about fun, but not many people have been known to turn away a gift.
Bringing a cute baby present or something the parents will love is just another way to show your affection and appreciation for being invited so if you bring a gift, you’ve done nothing wrong, but no one will be expecting it.
Whether it’s the first child or the eighth child, once a couple finds out they are pregnant, it’s a huge choice to find out the gender or just be surprised at the birth.
If they decide to find out the gender, it’s a truly exciting time for family and friends alike, so the gender reveal parties is a gift in itself. Sometimes people have fun themes with games and music. Some of the best themes include food, movie themes, paint guns or clothes, such as tutus and bow ties, according to Gender Reveal Surprise.
Parties may have rooms filled with balloons as you just await on pins and needles for one of those balloons to be popped as the colored confetti streams out exclaiming the gender. Other parties may have games where partygoers follow clues to find the gender reveal present at the end.
The best thing is the reveals don’t have to stop at confetti and powder. Many hosts fill cakes and/or cupcakes with the color of the gender and have everyone gather around for a sweet revealing treat. Some hosts go as far as to put colors in their car exhaust and rev down the road as the colored powder flows out. Everyone has their own ideas and nothing seems to be off limits. It’s all about celebrating loved ones, the new parents and the exciting new addition.
If you decide to bring the parents a gift, go unique.
It might be even a little more fun to bring the new sibling a gift because they may be feeling a bit left out and confused about all of the upcoming changes. Give them a gift or give the entire family a gift for an extra special surprise. Your gift could even go with the theme of the party. If the parents choose to hit a ball filled with powder, bring them a sporty golf gift. A gift doesn’t need to be something expensive as you can go all out for the shower later, it just need to be something fun or from the heart.
Enjoy this life changing time with loved ones and just have a lot of fun. To make sure your gender reveal party is a great success, follow these tips in the blog at Gender Reveal Surprise.
