Best Gender Reveal Party Ideas

Gender reveal parties are a fun way for expecting parents to share the news of their baby's gender with friends and family. Whether you’re planning a large gathering, an intimate reveal or a photoshoot for the ‘gram, they all have one thing in common: they're a chance to celebrate your baby.

At Collctiv, we believe that every milestone should be celebrated. That's why we've put together a list of our top 5 gender reveal party ideas that will bring excitement and joy to everyone involved:

  1. Cake Cutting
  2. Balloon Release
  3. Piñata
  4. Gift Unwrapping
  5. Confetti Cannon

Cake Cutting

Perhaps the most popular gender reveal is a cake cutting. Bring your (sealed!) results to your favourite bakery and have them bake a cake with pink or blue frosting. When you cut into the cake, the gender will be revealed.

Balloon Release

Another classic gender reveal party idea is to pack a large box with helium-filled pink or blue balloons. When you open the box, you’ll know if you’re having a boy or girl.


For a more interactive reveal, have your most trusted friend or family member fill a piñata with pink or blue bibs, toys, clothes, etc. Have your guests take turns hitting the piñata until it breaks open.

Gift Unwrapping

Enlist your most reliable secret keeper to wrap a series of gender-related gifts. Each layer unveils a little clue until the final wrap reveals the big secret.

Confetti Cannon

If you are on social media you've likely seen these before. Give each of your guests one of these party poppers and have everyone pull the trigger at once to find out what you are having. We think this bestseller on Etsy does the trick!

No matter which way you choose to find out your baby’s gender, make sure to have fun and enjoy this special moment. For most, finding out if you are having a baby boy or baby girl is one of life’s greatest surprises. Congratulations on your journey to parenthood!
