Share the Happy News with 7 Fun Gender Reveal Ideas!

Back in the olden days when I was pregnant— and ok, it was just 4 years ago— if you wanted to find out your baby’s gender you did so within the sterile walls of the ultrasound room.

Times have changed!

These days, parents-to-be are putting a more celebratory spin on the issue  with “gender reveal parties” or adorable gender announcements sent to family and friends.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ways to share the news!
