A lot of things have changed over the past few decades when it comes to having a baby. Not only is there advanced medical technology, but a lot of expectant parents also know the gender of their baby. While most mothers-to-be have a baby shower to stock up on the necessities that are required when bringing home a baby, the latest trend for soon-to-be-parents is to also have a gender reveal party to tell their loved ones what the baby is going to be (other than a baby). Hey, any excuse to have a party, right? Gender reveal parties typically include both women and men and often the expectant couple has had the baby's gender sealed in an envelope and only given to a trusted person involved in the party planning so that they are also finding out the gender of their new baby along with the guests at the party.
Everyone loves to find out what's underneath that metallic sheen on a scratch ticket. Etsy shop Enchanting By Design offers a series of scratch cards revealing whether "It's a boy!" or "It's a Girl!" with the ability to have the the cards customized with the parents' names or a special message. There is guaranteed to be a mad scramble to see who can scratch off the reveal the fastest and find out first.
