In this day and age, gender reveal parties have become a big part of one’s baby shower. After all, it’s an exciting event in which both parents and their loved ones are set to find out the gender of the coming baby. For those who are invited to such parties whether virtually (thank God for Zoom!) or in person (which the CDC still recommends against, to keep safe from Covid-19), one might think that it’s risky to purchase gifts that are gender-themed, like blue mittens or pink onesies. After all, a gender reveal party is hosted to find out if the baby will be a girl or a boy and purchasing presents beforehand will require guests to think out of the box for the appropriate presents to give to the parents and their coming child. Good thing, there’s Teelie Turner’s Best Gender-neutral Baby Shower Gift Guide 2020, a list of all the things you can give your expectant loved ones that are thankfully not pink or blue themed!
