7 Gender-Neutral Alternatives For Parents Who Don’t Want A Traditional Gender Reveal Party


While a gender reveal party can be fun for a lot of expectant parents (and grandparents), it’s not for everyone. Whether you aren’t finding out the sex of your baby or you just don’t like the idea of having one in the first place, there are actually a lot of really fun gender-neutral alternatives out there.

First things first, though: What is a gender reveal party? Basically, it’s a big party where the parents-to-be and their family and friends come together to find out the sex of their baby. The parties have really advanced over the years and now often include balloons, colorful cake, and even smoke effects. The concept was popularized by blogger Jenna Karvunidis in 2008.

Interestingly, Jenna has since walked back her support of the parties, and in 2019 she told her readers that the original gender reveal baby had … changed her gender! “Plot twist! The baby from the original gender reveal party is a girl who wears suits. She says ‘she’ and ‘her’ and all of that, but you know she really goes outside gender norms.”

There are plenty of personal reasons why an expectant parent may choose to not have a gender reveal party, and all are equally valid. Here are seven gender-neutral ideas that can take its place.
