The Best Gender Reveal Gifts (30+ Unique Ideas!)

Gender reveal gifts… what is the proper etiquette? Gender Reveal parties are a new addition to the party world, meaning there’s still some confusion. Everyone also does them a little differently, leaving room for interpretation. One of the biggest questions a lot of us are wondering, both as hosts and guests, is if gifts are appropriate.

To Do or Not To Do- Gender Reveal Gifts

The biggest factor determining whether or not to bring a gender reveal gift is if the expecting parents are also hosting a baby shower. In this case, you probably don’t need to bring anything, as the parents will just expect everyone is bringing gifts to the shower instead of doing a gender reveal gift. If you’d still like to bring something small, go for it!

Just keep in mind, the parents probably don’t want to have to give or throw away items so stick to gender-neutral ideas. Save gender-specific gifts for the baby shower!

Here are some great ideas for a gender reveal gift (they all double as great “congratulations” gifts even if the new parents won’t be having a party).

Mom and Dad-To-Be Box

Gender Reveal Gift Ideas for the Baby

Spearmint Love Baby Clothes

Spearmint Love makes some of the best newborn clothing out of 100% super-soft organic cotton. I especially love their knotted gown sets which come in a great selection of neutral colors. Any of their clothing or blankets would make the perfect gift for a gender reveal party.

Tiny Baby Moccasins

Looking for gender-neutral gender reveal gifts? A precious pair of moccasins is a great idea. Freshly Picked is well known for handmaking soft gorgeous mocassins, and I love this gray color. These are a must-have and the expectant mother will definitely appreciate adding them to her collection!

Sophie the Giraffe Set

Sophie Teether has been around since the 1960s and has been extremely popular in the US for the last 5 years or so. This cute little giraffe now comes in a set with a rattle as well. It is packaged together beautifully making for a great gift.

Not to mention, these will look adorable sitting in the nursery waiting for the baby to arrive! A great choice when looking for adorable and useful gender reveal gifts.

Do you know what makes for one of the very best gender reveal gifts? Something that will make parenting just a little bit easier for the new mom and dad. This portable playmat is super soft and perfect for tummy time. It is breathable and hypoallergenic with 1″ of comfy padding.

We had one of our Rookie Moms try it out, and she had very high praises! Of course, her absolute favorite feature is that she could easily fold it up and carry it with one hand to different parts of the house to plop down.

All The Babies (a gift that gives back!)

We love the incredibly soft, adorable, 100% organic baby clothing available from All The Babies (also vegan and sustainable!), but what we love even more is that their business is created around a Wear-Grow-Give model.

How it works: Your sweet baby wears their adorable outfit from All The Babies, then when your baby outgrows it you simply send it back (free of charge) to All The Babies and they personally hand-deliver it to a mother in need.

Baby Grooming Kit

Boy or girl, all babies take plenty of cleaning up after. There are some sets you can buy with everything already together (like this one), or you can put one together yourself. You can include towels, washcloths, a thermometer, baby Tylenol, baby nail clippers, and wipes.

Some fun things to add are the Nosefrida, which is wildly popular and honestly a lifesaver for stuffy-nosed babies, and The Windi which helps babies toot to avoid stomach pain.

Baby Books

The parents-to-be would also probably love to have books to read to their new little bundle of joy. You can’t really go wrong with picking from the classics or your old favorites. The Giving Tree, Guess How Much I Love You, and Goodnight Moon are a few great options.

Also, keep in mind board books are a good idea so the baby can play with the book themselves.

Baby Boxy

Baby Boxy is one of my favorite gift items to give to a new mama because the presentation of the present means almost as much as the present itself. The Baby Boxy arrives at your doorstep in a beautiful box with a silver bow so you are instantly ready to take it to the gender reveal party. Or if you can’t make it to the party, you can have it shipped to the new mom and it will arrive waiting to be unboxed.

Baby Boxy makes the unboxing experience fun for the new mama. The interior is carefully crafted, and every detail is thoughtfully planned to make sure your gift looks perfect.

Baby Boxy is filled with adorable clothes, bibs, teethers, rattles, and more. There are several gender-neutral options that are perfect for a gender-reveal party. I personally love the Giraffe and the Sloth Baby Box. They are so cute!

Maternity Clothes

Why not shower mom with a little love? A lot of expecting moms don’t buy very many maternity clothes and just try to work with what they have. Target is a great spot to start looking for basic items, along with Buy Buy Baby and Old Navy.

BAE the Label and Pink Blush Maternity are great if you’re shopping for a fashionista mama-to-be. They have pretty much everything from dresses to kimonos to swimsuits, and they all show off your bump in the cutest way.

If you’re unsure about size just grab a gift card from one of the many places that sell maternity clothes and write in the card you’d love for mom to be to spoil herself with new clothing. One of the best gifts my Sister-in-Law received was a gift card to Stitch Fix Maternity where a custom stylist picks out clothes for mama and she can return anyone she does not like.

Grab the new mom a shirt that tells it like it is

How much fun is it to be able to hand your pregnant bestie or family member a cute and fun shirt that’s totally different than the original go-to gift of diapers? I know I’d wear the heck out of this if I was gifted it!

It even works for side sleepers! Pregnancy pillows can relieve some of the pain and body aches that come with pregnancy, allowing mama to get the sleep she needs before the baby arrives. It’s also light enough to be easily portable, so you can move it from couch to bed as needed.

New Parent Pampering

Pregnancy can be stressful and uncomfy. Gifts like a comfy robe or a pregnancy massage certificate will be greatly appreciated. Mom and Dad mani-pedis are another great gender reveal gift that will guarantee the new parents feel pampered.

Gifts for Both Parents

Since it’s still probably pretty early on in the pregnancy parent-to-be mugs or shirts make for fun gender-reveal gifts. As you already probably know, Etsy is the place to look for these. These Mom Life and Dad Life hats pretty much give us life.

A bracelet like this is super thoughtful and sweet. We can’t help but love these cute mugs, even if mom can’t have coffee right now just put some yummy hot chocolate mix inside. For expecting dads, this shirt will give them all the credit they’ve been looking for. You’ll find more of our favorite ideas below!

Parent Prep Books

Every new parent can use some more tips to help them transition into being Mom or Dad. There are plenty of options out there like What to Expect When You’re Expecting, The Kind Mama, and Parenting with Purpose. There are also some books on the funnier side like Sh!t No One Tells You, Ketchup is a Vegetable, and Confessions of a Scary Mommy.

A Diaper Subscription 

Save the new parents from ever having to run out for diapers in the middle of a blowout with a subscription from ABBY&FINN! They deliver diapers right to your door, and it’s a feel-good gift too!

Hostess Gifts

If you wanna stick to a simple gift, it’s always safe to bring over a tray of cookies or brownies. You could also bring blue or pink flowers, it’s fun to choose the color of the gender you’re predicting! There’s non-alcoholic wine or you can bring a normal bottle with a fun label to be saved for after the baby is born.

Some common labels are “It’s a pump and dump kind of day,” “Naptime is my happy hour,” and “Save for first Mommy meltdown,” just make sure that the new mom isn’t missing wine too much already!
