It’s like Christmas morning in a box.

Gender Reveal Smoke Box
I feel like these are so popular right now, and for good reason!!
A smoke bomb gender reveal box is pretty awesome looking and sure to please kids and adults alike! I mean, who doesn’t like smoke bombs?
The lookout for these is to know whether the smoke is safe for indoor or outdoor use only and then use appropriately. Make sure they are non-toxic, especially if you have any asthma sufferers in attendance at your gender reveal party.

Lastly, practice this before the day of the big gender

Nothing is worse than hyping up people for an awesome gender reveal to only have it dud out on them!!
The other option is for someone to set off the smoke bomb behind the couple’s back too.
