It’s a Boy!

On father’s day weekend we were able to get our parents & siblings together for a gender reveal party!

After looking at all of the fun ideas on Pinterest, we decided to get a small gift for each couple to open and the color of the gift would tell them the gender of our baby.

We got these bags at Target and then wrapped each gift in a layer of white tissue paper and topped the bag with a blue and a pink piece of tissue paper.  Each of the gifts were something that could be purchased for under $5 and was something practical that we knew our families would use.

For my parents, they mentioned they needed new ice cream dishes.  I found these at target in teal or pink so it was a perfect gift for this party!

For Shawn’s parents, we bought them five blue dice since they play a lot of Yatzee.

For my older brother & his wife, we got them two blue loofahs.  It’s a running joke in our family and a long story… but we knew they would love them!

My younger brother got Hershey candy bars in his bag.  We wrapped them in blue scrapbook paper and cut out to undercover the letters ‘HE’.  If the baby was a girl we would have done the same thing with pink paper and uncovered the letters ‘SHE’.

Since Shawn’s sister likes Yankee Candles, we got her and her husband a blue jar candle.

We also bought these onesies at Goodwill and fabric markers at Michael’s so that our family could design onesies for our little one.  The onesies were all different sizes so it will fun to see when he will be able to wear each of them.
