In this post you can find DIY gender reveal party ideas that are easy to make with materials you can find right at home!
Gender reveal parties might not be for everyone. The stress of spending money on a party when you are about to bring a tiny human into the world can be daunting!
For me, at the beginning of my second trimester, I had just finished graduate school, and money was tight! However, with the support and encouragement of my sister, I was able to have a low-budget, and super fun gender reveal party for my first baby.

DIY Gender Reveal Party Ideas
Nuts or No Nuts
Which will your guests favor?
This decoration is adorable for a gender reveal party.
I cut out two shapes from pink and blue cardstock paper.
Then, with a sharpie, I wrote nuts on the blue shape, and no nuts on the pink shape.
Lastly, I attached them to bamboo skewers.
There you have it! A super cheap easy treat for your guests.
Wear Your Guess:
This is a fun guessing game that you guest can play!
Place this guessing game right by your front door so that guests wear their gender prediction as soon as they walk in.
Like the previous DIY idea, this DIY game is so simple and cheap to make!
I ordered a pack of 50 clothespins from Amazon because I knew I could recycle them for the baby shower or another craft idea.
All you have to do is you paint the ends (where you squeeze the clothespin) blue or pink, and that’s a wrap.
Your guests pick the colored clothespin with the color they think will be the baby’s gender and voila!
DIY Gender Reveal Favors
Since my reveal was in the winter, I got a pack of mini Cinnamon Fireball shots to warm everybody up. Also, Fireball is relatively cheap! But, not everyone likes Fireball, so choose the mini bottle of your liking!
You could also pick something nonalcoholic as well! We knew we had guests that liked to indulge, so we knew they would enjoy this favor!
We attached a personalized message with card stock and ribbon to each bottle.
For the message, I designed a message on my computer and printed it out on the same pink cardstock paper.
It says: “Whether pink or blue, we’re happy to spend this day with you.”
DIY Diaper Raffle:
This DIY diaper raffle was my FAVORITE part of deciding to have a gender reveal party.
We asked the guests coming to our party to bring a pack of diapers, and in turn, they could enter a prize raffle!
I also repainted this awesome wipe container that I was about to put in recycling and reused it for my baby shower.
Then, with the same pink cardstock paper as the previous DIY gender reveal party ideas, I wrote my own sign and tickets for this raffle!
I received so many diapers that I did not not need to buy diapers for the first 11 months of Lennox’s life. I call in a win, win.

I’m glad I got to share a few of my favorite gender reveal items with you. I had a blast making them and, it didn’t put a dent in my pocket. Also, I received a lot of diapers and enjoyed the company of my closest friends and family. Thank you for reading.
