Gender reveals and social media announcements of a new baby’s impending arrival are very popular these days. Just take a scroll through your Facebook or Instagram page and you’re sure to find an announcement or two!
With so many families turning to social media to unveil the news to the world, people are always looking for fun, unique ways to announce the arrival of a family member. The tips and ideas we’re sharing today will help set your little one’s reveal apart from the crowd with a little help from Embroider Buddy®.
Pregnancy or Adoption Announcement
When you discover your family will be expanding, one of the first things you might think of is how you’ll let everyone else in on the secret. Using a Buddy’s belly is a fantastic way to share the details, and it also becomes a keepsake that will last a lifetime!
Here are some of our favourite quotes to help announce a growing family:
- We’re adding a little more love to our family
- We’ve hoped, we’ve prayed, and now we’re excited to say… Our little one is on their way!
- Let the adventure begin
- Pink or blue, either will do!
Choose to embroider fan favourites like Lambton Lamb Buddy and Buddy Bunny or irresistibly plush members of the Clara Classic Collection to help you share the news.
The great thing about some of our Buddies is that they come in a variety of colours. If you’re hoping to reveal the gender of your little one to friends and family, add a special message on the belly of Bobby Buddy Bear, Mister Buddy Bear, Ellie Elephant Buddy or Elliott Elephant Buddy — they come in both pink and blue!
A simple “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” will do the trick, but if you already have a name picked out for your sweetie, this would be a perfect opportunity to add those details here, too. Monogramming baby’s initials is another fun way to keep people guessing up until delivery day!
Announcing Your Little One’s Arrival
Now that baby has arrived safe and sound, it’s time to announce their entrance to the world! Buddies have lots of belly space for you to get creative with embroidery. Consider adding the following details to your Buddy to cover all the basic yet important details that everyone will be asking for:
- Baby’s name
- Time of birth
- Place of birth
Embroider Blankey products are another great way to share your happy news. Available in mini and regular sizes, these cuddly square blankets are ready to be embroidered with baby’s name and other fun birthday stats.
Unlike some announcement methods, Buddies and Blankeys can be used for so much more than just celebrating baby’s arrival – they’re sure to become your little one’s best friend for life!
