The absolute classic – You order a cake filled with either pink or blue frosting and cut into it at your gender reveal party.

You can either be in the unknown and just give the baker the envelope with the gender or tell them what color to put inside and just surprise friends and family.

Burn out reveal

Another classic especially for car enthusiasts.

There is special powder you can buy to apply on the car tires.

The owner of the car then does a burn out in front of the whole group of people for the gender reveal party and the smoke will have the color of the gender.

For this you will also need one designated person that knows the gender beforehand.

Teaser reveal photo

Holly from Simplify Create Inspire had the idea to tease friends and family a bit before actually revealing the gender.

Once she found out what gender her baby would be she had a fun little photo session with her older kid and send a black and white photo of the reveal first to tease before actually sending the colored one.

Quick long distance gender reveal idea

With everyone still being stuck at home the idea of having a long distance gender reveal with family might not be very appealing but still a great way to share your happiness.

Mary from the mom friend combined a few different ideas she found to make her gender reveal unique.

Since she didn’t want to wait for other people to get their packages to finally reveal the gender she actually send a package with both options to family on each side.

But no still make it surprising once she found out she had family skype her and would tell them which one to open.

Pop the balloon

This is probably one of the classic gender reveal idea.

You start with a Black balloon that is filled with pink or blue powder or confetti to give away the gender once the balloon is popped.

This is usually prepared by a friend or you can hire people to do that job and deliver it to you.

Baby Outfit

This one sounds like a lot of fun and is perfect for people that can contain themselves from looking in the bag.

Go to the store and pick two outfits – One for a boy and one for a girl.

Take both of them to the register and hand the cashier the envelope with the gender and tell the cashier to only scan the appropriate outfit.

This only works if you step aside for a second so you can not see which one gets scanned.

Then open the bag at your gender reveal to find out what you are having.

Box with balloons

This one is very interesting and best to do when you have a friend knowing the gender.

That person will then make the box look nice and add balloons for both genders.

BUT only one will be filled with helium and the other one with regular air.

Once the box opens up the “wrong” balloon will fly away giving everyone a little shock thinking the gender balloon is taking off when they find the second balloon inside the box with the right gender.

Powder color cannons

A powder canon works just like a confetti cannon and can be purchased here.

All you have to do is grab it and pull the string and it will pop out the color for your baby’s gender.
