At around 20 weeks pregnant (give or take), your doctor will ask if you’d like to find out the gender of your little bundle of joy. Some may really want to know right away, while others may want to wait until the delivery to find out. But, you’re probably here reading this because you want to have a gender reveal party/celebration and want to get some ideas on where to start!
To shortly explain, a gender reveal is when expecting parents plan to find out the baby’s gender through creative reveals (usually revolving around the colors pink or blue). Normally, parents will decide to do this either before or during their baby shower. If you’re thinking of planning a gender reveal, the littlebeam Nursing Pillows team thought we'd share some amazing and unique gender reveal ideas that we’ve come across online!

You should watch the whole thing here, but to summarize, a couple decided to have a gender reveal through lipstick and kisses! The expectant parents had faces covered in blue, and they jumped for joy at the thought of soon welcoming a son!
- Ferris Wheel - Okay, this one is pretty special! These expectant parents had help learning their baby’s gender through the Ferris Wheel at the Maryland National Harbor. People all gathered around to share the moment when pink lights graced the ride, revealing they were having a girl.
