Pregnancy Announcement Ideas: 10 ways to tell someone you love that you’re having a baby

Posted by Emma Weldon on

Sharing the news that you're pregnant is an exciting (if not somewhat nerve wracking) occasion. Whether you’re telling your partner, parents, family, friends, and even work colleagues, revealing your pregnancy to a loved one is the start of a beautiful pregnancy journey together - and the way you choose to do it can help to set the tone for the exciting months to come. Here at Bumbles and Boo, we've been lucky enough to experience the joy of pregnancy ourselves, and many of our team members have got creative with their own baby announcements too.

We understand that you want this announcement to be special, something that will be cherished and remembered for years to come. Whether you're revealing your pregnancy to your partner, family, friends, or even colleagues, a thoughtful and creative announcement sets the stage for the incredible journey ahead.

Here are 10 unique and heartwarming ways to announce your pregnancy:


  1. The Classic Ultrasound Photo: There's a reason this method is so popular - it's a timeless and sentimental way to share your news. Purchase a high-quality copy of your baby's ultrasound photo and present it with a specially made baby scan photo frame. The excitement on the recipient's face as they unwrap the package will be priceless.
  2. The Puzzle Reveal: This is a fun and interactive way to share your news, especially if you're announcing to a group. Create a custom puzzle online featuring a photo of yourselves, a baby announcement message, or even a cute baby-themed image. Once the puzzle is complete, the big reveal is unveiled!
  3. The Positive Pregnancy Test Surprise: For a more light-hearted approach, consider gifting a wrapped pregnancy test with a positive result. You could also include a note alongside it. This playful surprise is sure to get a laugh (and maybe a few happy tears!)
  4. The Announcement Card: Sometimes, the simplest approach is the most elegant. Beautifully designed pregnancy announcement cards are available here at Bumbles and Boo, allowing you to share your news in a personal and heartfelt way. Choose a card that reflects your style and add a handwritten message for an extra special touch.
  5. The Pregnancy Reveal Hamper: designed specifically with an announcement card, baby booties and beautiful scratch mittens rose posy, ideal to let family members know your baby news.
  6. The Photo Booth Surprise: Capture the moment of revelation with a fun photo booth session. Head to a local photo booth or use your phone to capture the moment. Snap a series of photos together, and then hold up a sign announcing your pregnancy. This is a fantastic way to document the surprise and joy on your loved one's face.
  7. The Baby Gift Hamper: Spoil your loved ones with a basket filled with adorable baby goodies. This is a wonderful way to plant the seed of what's to come, and it gives the recipient a taste of the exciting times ahead. At Bumbles and Boo our baby gift baskets are beautifully presented and filled with adorable soft toys, rattles, baby clothes, and even bath products.
  8. The Lunch Date with a Twist: Plan a special lunch date with your loved one but book a table for three! When they question the extra setting, you get to reveal the exciting news. You could even take it a step further and ask the waiter to discreetly set a miniature baby-sized cutlery set on the third plate for an extra touch of cuteness.
  9. The Scavenger Hunt: If you're looking for a more interactive way to announce your pregnancy, create a scavenger hunt around your house. Leave a trail of clues leading to a special prize or a note revealing your baby news. This is a fun activity that builds anticipation and excitement. It’s also ideal if you’re announcing the news to young children.
  10. The Unexpected Delivery: Surprise your loved one with a delivery of essential baby supplies, like baby hats & booties, toys, or even nappies and baby wipes. The shock and confusion on their face will quickly turn to joy once they realise the reason behind the unexpected package.

No matter how you choose to do it, announcing your pregnancy is a special moment to celebrate the miracle of new life in your family. We hope these ideas have sparked your creativity and helped you find the perfect way to share your exciting news.
