A baby gender reveal is undoubtedly an exciting time for everyone involved. This ranges from the parents-to-be to close family and friends. For many parents, it is one of the high points in the pregnancy process, and more and more in recent times, people are finding creative and memorable ways to discover this information together.

Here at Hello Baby, we love a creative gender reveal party that encapsulates the personality of the future parents. This is why we thought we would share some of our favourites with you in this blog post…

1) Baby baller!

If you are a sporty couple that enjoys either playing or watching regularly, then this gender reveal idea could be perfect for you. You can tailor this idea to any kind of ball sport you prefer by simply filling the ball with either pink or blue powder or mist. This means that as soon as it is kicked or thrown to the ground you will be able to see the gender of your baby.

2) Smoke bomb celebration

It goes without saying that using smoke at a party should be done safely, but this can easily be done in a larger space and being cautious at all times. To brighten up your gender reveal party, be sure to choose a blue and pink smoke bomb that you can set off to discover the gender of your baby in style.

3) Paint party

For the more artsy and creative parents to be out there, a paint party could be a great way of revealing the gender of your baby. Here, you can wear white t-shirts to really get the desired effect, before getting your family and friends to shoot either blue or pink paint onto your clothes. This is highly recommended for some great picture opportunities!

4) Throwing a great reveal

Think you have a good aim? It’s time to find out by throwing your way towards discovering the gender of your baby. Place a series of balloons on the wall and throw an object towards them that will cause them to burst. Of course, if using sharper objects then be sure that they are used safely! This can cause plenty of laughs if it takes you a while to finally hit the target, this is a great way of making your baby reveal fun and special.

5) Special sparklers

If you are hosting a night time baby gender reveal party then sparklers could be a great way of brightening up the occasion. Implementing colour specific sparklers for either a boy or a girl can get everyone involved, little ones included! This guarantees fun for all during this time of celebration.

6) An explosion of joy

Another way of getting the kids involved is getting crafty with your gender reveal. One of the best examples we have saw is getting the whole family involved to create a volcano from papier-mache. Here you can fill your volcano with water, vinegar and standard washing detergent. Then add a pink or blue food colouring before the big moment comes. When you want to reveal the gender ask your kids to add baking soda and let the celebrations begin!

    Honestly had the BEST experience at Hello Baby.
    We had a rocky start to our pregnancy so we have been to hello baby 3 times now just so we can feel reassured and one of which was for our gender scan. We have been made to feel welcome and
    … More comfortable every single time, but today has outdone the previous experiences by far. And they were already hard to beat.
    The lady who scanned my wife spent extra time with us, no rushing, evening helped get our baby moving around so we could see him better. She gave us a plenty time, and then even went the extra mile and gave us a tiny glimpse of him in 4D.
    We cannot recommend them enough. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and all round GREAT experience! Deffo worth going! 🥰🥰

    Loved our experience at Hello Baby 😃 been here twice ... once in 2018, and again in February 2021. I wanted the gender of my baby kept a surprise as we wanted a gender reveal cannon, and they did not disappoint or give anything away! Staff … More are very friendly and polite. Thank you so much again! Would recommend 5***

    I came here for a private scan because I was not sure how far gone I was. I got a shock to realise I was already half way through pregnancy and I was having a boy. Came here again for a bonding scan and got some lovely photos. The staff … More were really friendly and I enjoyed the experience. Would definitely recommend xxx

    Lovely experience for our first scan! We went for an early reassurance scan and that’s exactly what we got. We turned up at the wrong time but they still fitted us in there and then no waiting around. Would recommend to others in the future … More

    Amazing Experience
    I came to Hello Baby with my daughter for an Early and Bonding Scan, unfortunately they was closed for the gender due to lockdown.
    We had the best experience on both occasions, the receptionist was lovely and friendly
    … More and Katie was fantastic and very professional with what she does.
    On my daughters 1st scan she was too early to detect a heart beat so Katie very kindly offered us to come back the following week for a re scan. It was emotional to hear Katie offering her congratulations the following week and we got the best pictures you can get at such a early date.
    The bonding scan, Katie tried her best and wasn’t going to give up as the baby was in the wrong position, we was told to go for a walk and for my daughter to drink a lucozade.
    Upon our return, the baby had moved position and Katie again got us some amazing images.
    Everybody we met at Hello Baby was warm, welcoming and friendly, nothing was to much trouble and wasn’t rushed.
    We was asked on each occasion if we was happy with the scan pictures before buying them.
    Would definitely recommend and wouldn’t go any where else.
    Thank you Katie and team 💕
