Gender Neutral Baby Shower Tips

Baby showers are almost a given for any expecting mother or couple, but how exactly should you go about throwing a baby shower when the sex of the baby is not known? For those couples who don't yet know or who are waiting to find out whether their baby is a boy or girl, don't sweat it! Gender neutral baby showers are not only possible, but just as easy and fun as any other baby shower.

When throwing a gender neutral baby shower, here are a few tips to remember:

  1. Avoid gender specific names, games, and colors. Yellow and green are usually fine colors, but try to avoid pink and blue.
  2. Turn the unknown into a game. You can play name games such as providing lists of baby names and having each guest make their own list of gender neutral names from the master list. You may surprise some people who have associated a specific name with only one gender.
  3. Be sure to mention on the baby shower invitations that any gifts should be gender neutral.
  4. Pick a fun gender neutral theme such as moon & stars, the beach, nursery rhymes, or candy land and then choose and order baby shower invitations to match.

Armed with these tips your gender neutral baby shower is sure to be a success and loads of fun for all of your guests. Be sure to also read our article on baby shower games for more ideas about throwing a baby shower.
