Speaking of gender reveals, our exclusively designed “It’s a Girl!” and “It’s a Boy” glass ornaments are a great way to disclose baby’s gender. Simply pack the appropriate ornament in a beautiful Bronner’s box, and let grandma or big sister or a randomly chosen guest open the box and display the ornament to let everyone know if baby is a boy or a girl.
