Remember how we told you about gender reveal parties? When parents-to-be hold parties around the 20-week mark to announce the gender of their child?
Typically a gender reveal party is held in addition to a baby shower — just to get some friends together and celebrate the baby’s gender — yet some people have attacked the idea, calling it a little too self-congratulatory. Any reason to celebrate, they said. Looking for more gifts, they accused.
So why not have a Gender Reveal Baby Shower, using the same party ideas as we showed you before? Of course you’ll have to wait a little longer (usually in the third trimester) and you’ll most likely acquire gender-neutral gifts, but it’s a fun party theme.
