You've found out the sex of your baby and want to let your loved ones know in a unique way.
Here you will find some the best Gender Reveal Ideas I've seen.

1. Balloons In a Box - I think this is one of the most popular ones I've seen. This was the 'trend' when they all started but I must say its still a firm favourite for me! This can be done a few ways; opened from the floor with helium balloons flying out, strung up with a string hanging to pull the box open for balloons to fall or pinata style!
For this you'll need; a box, a sign reading 'its a', coloured balloons & confetti.

2. Fireworks - This is I think a newer way to share your wonderful news. It's perfect for those that love a get together and a little firework show! After dinner, drinks - mock for mum to be ;) , you all gather outside ready for the big reveal!

3. Confetti Balloon - These are great! A big black balloon filled with confetti which you quite simply POP!
You can get these at Party Pieces.

4. Smoke Bomb/Cannon - I've seen these used mostly during maternity photo sessions {I'd love to do a gender reveal session pop me an email if you choose this one!}. They make for some pretty epic pictures too!
You can buy these here.

5. Painted Hands - This is a fabulous one to do when you have children. Mum wears a white tee and you paint the hands of dad and child/ren and they all place a hand on mums tummy and lift at the same time. You could also do your own twist with a black t-shirt and neon paints!

7. Confetti Cannons - Its no secret I love a bit of confetti and glitter! These cannons are perfect for gender reveals. You can get them here.

8. In a Cake - This is I think my favourite way I've seen, nothing to do with how much I love cake! ;) There are so many gender reveal cake options, coloured sponge or buttercream, filled with coloured sprinkles or in the cupcake variety!
