Announcing your pregnancy in a fun, original way
It’s been confirmed: you’re expecting! You can have an ultrasound and see your little one for the first time at around the 8-week mark. Keeping this amazing news to yourself as parents-to-be is very difficult, so you’ll be sharing with family and friends soon. Many people wait until the first 12 weeks have passed to let the whole world know, but once they have; time for a cool pregnancy announcement! Tell your work, your neighbours, share your joy with everyone.
Lots of parents choose to make their pregnancy announcement in an original way. A personalised gift featuring a photo and/or sweet text, for instance. YourSurprise offers a wide range of fun baby gifts
, which can each be personalised. What better way to let your parents know they’re going to be grandparents than with a personalised baby romper?
Perfect pregnancy announcement gifts
Announcing your pregnancy will make everyone who hears emotional. If you’ve had an ultrasound scan and have a photo, have it printed on a gift and give it to someone with whom you wish to share your big news in a special way. Rompers, dummies and puzzles are popular choices.
Putting together a gift set
If you really want to go big, put together a fun gift set for grandparents, aunts and uncles to be. You can add a personalised wooden card and dummy with the text of your choice. Put them in a nice box and have them unwrap their gift! Just watch their surprised faces when they open it.
Telling grandparents, friends and family in a fun way
If the baby has an older brother or sister, have them wear a t-shirt
stating that they’re going to be a big brother or sister when you visit family or friends. Or go for a mug
, personalised with the announcement. Sit back and see which of your loved ones will spot it first!
Tip: Personalised romper featuring photo and name
Everyone knows that rompers are typical babywear. This makes them the perfect way to announce your pregnancy. Select the smallest size and a unisex colour such as orange, red, white or green. Add the personalisation of your choice, keeping in mind for whom the gift is. Any recipient is sure to be very surprised!
Tip: Hinged photo frame with photo and text
Beautiful photos deserve a great presentation. You can achieve this with a YourSurprise hinged photo frame, ideal for your cupboard, window sill or table. It’s a fantastic alternative to a regular photo frame. Add your ultrasound print to one of the designs and add a personal text, such as ‘We’re looking forward to meeting you’ or ‘Take your time, little one’. Announcing your pregnancy in this way can be extra special when you add your due date.
Tip: Cards for the whole family
If you’d like to tell all of your family and friends your happy news at the same time, have a personalised greeting card made for each of them, featuring your ultrasound print and a message. YourSurprise offers various greeting cards and photo cards. If you’d rather not add an ultrasound print, we have plenty of fun designs to choose from instead.
