Pregnancy is an exciting time for many couples. It’s also an excellent opportunity to share the special news with your loved ones. If you’re eager to spill the beans on your new arrival, there are lots of ways to make the big announcement. You can choose whether to make it big with a huge party or keep it intimate with a few of your nearest and dearest. However you decide to celebrate, here are some ideas for this special occasion.
1. Throw a party
One of the best ways to celebrate is to bring all the people you love together for a pregnancy announcement party. You can go big or small with this idea and make it as unique as you want to. As a tie into this idea, you could also throw a gender reveal party to celebrate the announcement for a little longer.
2. Make special gifts
Those closest to you will undoubtedly be over the moon with excitement on your impending arrival. So to make this moment even more unique, you could arrange gifts for new grandparents as part of the announcement. You can get a range of personalized presents to create a memento of the occasion, so they have a memory to treasure for years to come.
3. Share your news on social media
For those who want the world to know about their bundle of joy, sharing on social media is a new big trend. Share a picture or video of your announcement and decide whether to keep the details private or more open with your followers.
4. Get siblings involved
If you have other children who are just as excited as you, include them in the announcement. Give them a role in how the announcement will be made, and create personalized souvenirs so they can keep these as treasured memories.
5. Get pets involved
Much like siblings, your pets are part of the family too, so get them involved. Check out shopping platforms such as Etsy for personalized dog t-shirts to showcase the announcement. You could also make this a secret and pop the tee on your pet to surprise your partner or loved ones when they visit.
6. Get creative
There are plenty of ways you can get your creative juices flowing with a pregnancy announcement. Some of the top ideas include:
- Personalized t-shirts
- Announcement cards with sonograms
- Family pictures
- Personalized photo frames
- Baby onesies
