Gender reveal parties are still relatively common among expecting parents, and you may find it a bit daunting to think of the perfect gift, (if you choose to bring one).
Since you don’t know the baby’s gender and gender-specific gifts are falling out of fashion anyway, a great way to go is the gender-neutral gift for the baby.
Another great option is tailoring the gift to the soon-to-be new parents – something that will ease their load in the coming months while helping prepare them for the new addition to their family!
It’s definitely not a requirement to bring a gift to a gender-reveal party, but we’ll make sure you have some great gift options should you decide to bring one.
Here is our curated list of gender-neutral ideas that will make wonderful gifts at the next gender-reveal party you attend!
Thoughtful & Generous Gender Reveal Gifts
Rounding Up Some Fun, Cute and (Just in Case!) Last Minute Gifts for a Gender Reveal Party
Gender Reveal Gift Ideas for Parents
Soft Bed Sheets
Some extra soft bed sheets are a luxurious way to help soon-to-be parents recover from the sleepless nights that are inevitable with the arrival of newborn babies.
We love the idea of treating them to organic cotton, bamboo, or linen sheets.
Bath bombs are a wonderful gift for expecting families and are an especially popular self-care gift with pregnant women.
But make no mistake: they’re also a great option for new dads who need some TLC!
Cheeky Decision Coin
A cute and funny sort of gift can be a big hit at a gender-reveal party, and it’s also great as a baby shower gift.
Try this cheeky decision coin that will let new parents flip for whose turn it is to tend to the new baby!
A Good Water Bottle
Good quality water bottles can be a lifesaver for new parents and are a useful gift they can keep for a long time!
This gift is a practical way you can alleviate stress and keep them hydrated when it’s time for the baby’s arrival.
Memory/Keepsake Baby Book
A memory book is a great keepsake for a growing family; they can keep track of the new child’s journey and celebrate their cherished memories together.
Bonus: it’s also a great photo opportunity for logging baby’s growth!
This is a thoughtful gift that would be perfect coming from a close family member or friend.
Once the baby arrives, the parents will be thanking you for this practical gift – a bottle warmer will make their lives easier from the moment of the big reveal onwards!
Do they love to eat healthy?
A Nutribullet is the perfect kind of gift for them – especially for making a quick smoothie or sauce when cooking dinner has to come second to checking on the new bundle of joy.
Another practical and unique gift, a programmable thermostat will give expectant parents control over their space: whether it’s warming up the baby’s nursery or cooling down the bedroom for a new mom when she’s hot and tired!
Digital Picture Frame
A great neutral gift for gender reveal parties is a digital picture frame; it’s the perfect way to capture and display memories during this exciting time!
Whether you’re new in the lives of the expecting parents or their close friends, gifting them a night light is a sure-fire way to earn major points and help them create a cozy nursery environment!
White Noise Machine
Want to focus more on sound than sight?
A white noise machine is a good idea with multiple uses: it can create a calming space for a new baby, or even help new parents get some important shut-eye themselves.
Portable Diaper Changing Pad
When it comes to diapers, there are a lot of hidden costs – alleviate that stressor by gifting them a portable diaper changing pad, and they’ll be thanking you long after baby arrives!
We love options like this one which feature a baby wipes pocket and a comfortable padded pillow.
Cute Gender Reveal Gift Ideas

Gender-specific gifts are falling out of fashion, and unisex baby clothes are great ideas for parents who have yet to know the gender of their baby!

We think keepsake boxes are a super unique way to welcome a little boy or girl to the family!
Baby gifts that focus on milestones and growth are sure to make meaningful gifts, and this milestone mat is no exception, (and it’s perfect for social media photos!).

That’s a big win if we say so.
Do you bring a gift to a gender reveal party?
While it’s not always necessary to bring a gift to a gender reveal party, it’s usually appreciated. Some choose to bring gender-neutral gifts like baby clothes, diapers, or toys, while others wait until after the baby is born, and bring a gift to the baby shower party.
Ultimately, the decision to bring a gift or not is up to you, and you should not feel obligated to bring one if you don’t want to or can’t afford to do so.
What gifts should be given in gender reveal?
When it comes to bringing gifts to a gender reveal party, there are basically two categories to keep in mind: gender-neutral gifts for the baby itself, or gifts for the soon-to-be parents. Each of the items above falls into one of these two categories.
