Parent to be gift box
This is a great option for those who want to give parents-to-be a little something special. A gift box filled with goodies like relaxing candles, bath salts, and even chocolates will come in handy during the stressful moments of pregnancy.
Gender Neutral baby blanket
If you're unsure of the baby's gender, a gender-neutral baby blanket is always a safe bet. Soft and cozy, it'll keep the little one warm and moms and dads always need extra blankets when the baby arrives.
Books for expectant parents
Another thoughtful gift option is books that will help expecting parents prepare for their new role. I like to gift all my friends some parenting books because, we are never taught to raise a human until we actually become a parent! And preparing yourself with a book always helps. Few of my go-to books for parenting are Babywise and Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child books for new parents, and Siblings without Rivalry and Good Inside for parents expecting another baby into their life!
A keepsake box photo frame is a thoughtful and meaningful way for parents-to-be to capture precious memories and moments with their little one. It can hold items like ultrasound pictures, capture your baby's small feet, and their newborn picture.
For a fun gift idea, customized onesies with a cute message or design would be a cute gender reveal gift. This will not only be useful for the baby but also an instagram post opportunity for parents!
Diaper subscription box
If you don't want to bring a giant box of diapers, which is actually a very practical gift option, you can give a gift card to diaper subscription box. They'll appreciate the thoughtful gesture!
Gender Neutral Baby Onesie Set
If you want to give parents-to-be a practical gift, consider a set of neutral baby onesies. These are always needed and will come in handy during those frequent diaper changes.
Baby Milestone Blanket
A milestone blanket is a unique and creative gift that will allow parents to track their baby's growth. It makes for a cute photo prop and creates lasting memories.
Expectant parents probably don't have any baby books just yet! Get baby books by Sandra Boynton or Guess How Much I Love You, or Very Hungry Caterpillar that they can read to the baby during the bedtime. It's a cute Nursery item that they can add to when they are preparing to decorate the baby room.
Belly Butter or Oil
As moms get through 2nd and 3rd trimesters, getting the belly butter on their growing belly would become more and more important. Give mom a special gift of belly oil or belly butter they can rub on their belly to prevent any stretch marks.
Gift cards for date nights
If the expectant parents don't have any kids just yet....maximizing the time with just the two of them would become more and more important before the baby arrives. Getting a gift card for date nights, a movie theatre gift card or a restaurant gift card would be a thoughtful gender reveal gift.
It will be awhile until baby can actually start to wear shoes. But once they start to scoot around and tries to stand up, a soft sole shoes like mocassins would come in handy. And they are just so cute and adorable as nursery room decor as well. These mocassins are gender neutral, so perfect as gender reveal gift.
Cute Baby Security Blanket
A soft and cuddly security blanket can help soothe a baby and provide comfort during nap time. You can get something so soft and blanket-like like these ones, or you can get a stuffy like this one.
Baby Bathtime Set
Bathing a newborn can be daunting, so why not gift a set that includes all the essentials? There are many bath time sets that includes all the things an expectant parent to be would need.
Baby Teething Set
Baby teething sets are cute and very practical as well. Teething can be a difficult time for babies and providing relief for their sore gums is important. A teething set with teething toys, bibs, and washcloths is a perfect gender reveal gift.
It's all about celebrating the exciting moment of welcoming a new life into the world. Whether you choose to bring a gift to a gender reveal party is entirely up to you. It's the thought that counts, after all. Remember, the best gifts are those given from the heart, and your presence at such a joyous occasion is a gift in itself!
