10 Baby Gender Reveal Party Ideas

Creating a gender reveal party post has been on the top of our “to do” list for ages.  Since we still have not gotten around to creating our own, we thought we would at least share some ideas from one of our “go to” party suppliers, Windy City Novelties. And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up  editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.

What are Gender Reveal Parties?

Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower.

Best Personalized Jewelry for Your Valentine!

 

Best Personalized Jewelry for Your Valentine!

Today's PIP's Pick!

These lovely personalized necklaces are perfect Valentine's gifts. We particularly like rose gold for Valentine's Day (and rose gold is very much on trend this year)!

I am especially partial to name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace one Valentine's Day many moons ago.  They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin.  🙂

And we love the Moon & Lola “love you more” necklace. #too cute

Planning a wedding?  Personalized name jewelry make great bridesmaid gifts too!

Party Hearty!
