Once sonograms were hi-def enough to show the gender of a baby, it was common practice for parents to announce the gender from the rooftops as soon as they found out the news. Yet, there’s something magical about leaving that kind of reveal for the day the newborn enters the world. In recent years, parents have decided to leave it an old-fashioned mystery. That means your color options for baby shower gifts have dramatically increased. No sticking to pink or blue baby blankets for you. Instead, pick from some of these great gender neutral gifts. Adorable outfits, toys, and nursery items in a range of colors mean they’ll work no matter what gender the parents discover on the day of the baby’s birth.
