Gender reveal parties have been on the rise for the past several years and have taken off from a couple releasing blue or pink balloons to some truly out-of-the-box ideas. For example, instead of just serving a gender reveal cake with blue or pink filling, people are now slicing into gender reveal lasagna to find out the sex!

Whether you're planning a big get-together to surprise family and friends with your baby's gender, or you just want a unique way to share a special moment with your significant other, these are concepts you can really get excited about whether it's a boy or a girl!
