Now what’s the best way to let everyone know the exciting results?
Here are some creative ways to reveal your baby’s gender and say
It’s A Boy! or It’s A Girl!
#1 – Snail Mail Postcards
We went low-tech.
I had my 6-year-old son call his dad, to whom he proudly announced: “Our team is winning!”
The quickest way to tell everyone the sex of your baby is probably by email.
Design a simple card that reveals the sex of your future child.
#2 – Email Cards
E-cards That Say “It’s A Boy!”
- “It’s A Boy!” (with ultrasound image)
- Cyberkisses It’s A Boy! email postcard
- American Greetings It’s A Boy! e-card
E-cards That Say “It’s A Girl!”
Do scan your ultrasound photos for preservation. That way, you can crop and insert them in e-cards and e-mails — just as you would a traditional photo!
Speaking of fun pregnancy things to do on the computer… You can always add a BOY or GIRL pregnancy ticker to your email signature or Facebook page. Here’s a list of the best free pregnancy tickers online.
#3 – Make A Video
Did you record your baby’s ultrasound?
Upload the footage to YouTube, then send the link to all your friends and family.
I love the way the parents in this video added music and subtitles!
There are some tacky t-shirts on the web, but I liked these simple $18 tees from Etsy. You can even get one with the ultrasound image or your baby’s due date!
Here’s another page of stylish tees that announce the sex. of your new baby.
Or make your own pregnancy t-shirt. Just let the older siblings loose with some pink or blue fabric paint!
#5 – Say It Big With Balloons
Most grocery stores sell plain helium balloons for $1 apiece. Walmart will fill your balloons free if you purchase the package in the store. Dollar Tree is the best value for mylar baby balloons ($1).
#6 – Have A Gender Reveal Party
Make a cake (or cupcakes) with the insides colored pink or blue.
Then invite all of your closest friends and relatives to the party to find out the baby’s gender together!
