You’re expecting a baby — congratulations!
You’ve had your ultrasound and know the sex of your baby — congratulations!
But you’re also still living your life and busy and also… tired. Bone tired.

So you can still have time for an extra nap (take care of yourself, mama!).

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!
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)
3: Pink or Blue Food
If you’re wanting to make a video, we loved doing our Pie in the Face gender reveal! And you can see our kids did, too!
For simpler gender reveal food ideas, you can take a photo
- sipping a pink or blue soda and ice cream float or fruity cream float or mocktail
- biting into a blue velvet cupcake or pink strawberry meringue cookie
- baking up a batch of chocolate chip M&M cookies — with only pink or blue M&Ms!
Congratulations on your baby!
