1: A Gender Reveal Sign

A boy or girl sign is an easy way to photograph a gender reveal!

Our printable pregnancy sign sets include both the Hello World as pictured below, and “It’s a Boy” and “It’s a Girl” variations. Just type in your info, print, and snap a picture.

Add a colorful accessory (either a baby’s or your own) and you’re ready to reveal!

You can also use a cute chalkboard or a letterboard, too.

I know fellow Remodelaholics always have spare paint chips around, so I loved this paint swatch gender reveal idea!

2: Use Balloons

There’s just something inherently fun about using balloons for photos, and a gender reveal is definitely fun!

Grab a pre-made gender reveal balloon kit or stop by the party store for pink or blue balloons for a photo using a sign (like our printable above) or a photo like this:

or a baby announcement made with scrabble tiles (or make your own jumbo scrabble tiles!)

or by doing a balloon drop pull string pinata! (or reverse it and let helium balloons float out of the box)
