My view isn’t the most popular, but this is a time I wouldn’t get all pintresty and would be real. I much prefer a heartfelt phone call or skype where they can see your reaction and you can sense theirs. This is a big moment and I would honestly just call them so they can have that same rush of emotions that your mothers do.

@Jayhawkmama:  I would do a skype or facetime session, so you can see their faces and share the joy!

@Jayhawkmama:  I agree with just skyping. It doesn’t have to be an overdone pinterest event…

@Jayhawkmama:  I have seen some fun gender reveal cakes – you can order from a bakery local to them (it’s just a small cake, the outside is just white, but the inside is baked to be pink or blue) and have them pick it up. Call ahead to the bakery, have them make two cakes (one pink and one blue) and then when you know what it is, call the bakery and let them know which cake to give to your in-laws when they come pick it up. Have your in-laws slice the cake when you call them to discover what the baby will be.

Alternatively, you could just call them and announce it. It’s still fun. 🙂

I actually really like the cake idea. I think it would be so much fun for them to find out and then call YOU with their excitement of knowing!.. since doing a facetime/skyping isn’t an option.

It’s like the excitement of finding a gift at the end of a scavenger hunt & then going back to the person that gave it so happy you “found” it.

What if you sent them a bouquet of flowers?  Send them pink roses for a girl or blue hydrangas for a boy – with a sweet note.  Good luck!

How about sending them the boxes, and have them open the boxes while you are on the phone together ??

I knew someone who sent a cake to their parents. So they found out and then had already found a local bakery who does gender cakes that would deliver/ship it to the parents and once they found out the gender they just called the bakery and had them make the cake and deliver it.
