After making the decision to have a Gender Reveal Party to find out the gender of this baby with which I am currently pregnant, it was a natural progression as a Blogger to make it a fun online event too. If you don’t know much about Gender Reveal Parties, you should definitely read my post here. However, I was so excited when Magic Beans wanted to partner with me on this online baby reveal event.
Magic Beans is sponsoring my online Gender Reveal Twitter Party! If you don’t know who they are, they are a baby gear and toy store with five locations in Massachusetts. If you don’t live local, they have an amazing online store too. Baby registries, birthday party registries, the best gear, the hottest toys; they have them. Which is why they are named in the Best of Boston Guide and on Boston.com’s A-list, to name just a few amazing accolades. Follow them on Twitter as they always have tons of magic happening at @MBeans. They are giving away some amazing prizes during the Twitter party too, such as this awesome set from Sage Spoonfuls and a goody bag with tons of items that will blow your baby-socks off.
Plus, I am so excited that the Best Baby Gear Guru Jamie (otherwise known as the @TheBabyGuyNYC on Twitter) is wrangling the Twitter party. Even though he appears on the likes of the Today Show, I am super honored that he will be here. His awesomeness will make the Twitter Party a blast! Trust me on that one.
Also, Punchbowl is giving away a $100 premium membership that we will give one lucky person during the Twitter Party. They have some fabulous online invitations specifically for Gender Reveal Parties and Showers (and other parties and events too!) Check out my post on the invitation I used and how the Punchbowl website has really helped with party planning. I am so excited that they are participating because they are a local company too. They are on Twitter at @Punchbowl.
Tiny Love – the amazing baby gear line – has donated a fabulous Twitter giveaway! Woot! Do you want to know what it is? Well, you’ll just have to read my post. But let’s just say it will get your groove on. (Hint, Hint.) Follow Tiny Love on Twitter at @TinyLoveAnn.
The spal-licious people from Spa Week are also sharing a $50 Gift Card with a Twitter Party participant because all pregnant Moms need some pampering too. Don’t want to wait?

Another fabulous giveaway is from Sage Spoonfuls. I’m so excited about this one! This is an amazing company and product that you have got to check out.

Happy Baby is joining in on the fun with their yummy baby and toddler products! They are giving away a yummy bag filed with Happy Baby goodies. Everything from their munchies, puffs, and squeezable purees (that are great for Moms too). If you can’t make your baby food, their products are great for on-the-go! You can check out my review here and follow them on Twitter at @HAPPYsuperfoods.
There are other fabulous companies have been a part of the process- like Goldenview Ultrasound! They have locations in Boston, MA , Chicago, IL , New York, NY and San Antonio, TX and offer prenatal 3D Ultrasounds and 4D ultrasounds. They are the ones that identified the goods of this baby, if you know what I mean, and you can read my experience here. They are giving away a free 3D/4D ultrasound to one lucky Mama-to-be during the Twitter Party! Check them out on Twitter at @Goldenview.
No baby party (online or in person) is complete without a lovable GUND. GUND is giving away a Nurserytime Lena Lamb to one lucky winner! This cuddly lamb’s head, body and mouth move as she recites 5 nursery rhymes to the little lamb in her arms. Lena comes with 3 replaceable AA batteries and features an on/off switch on her hand, and retails for $40. In addition, GUND will offer other great giveaway during the Twitter party such as a Lolly Giraffe, Comfy Cozy and Huggy Buddy (ladybug or bumble bee). Each retails for $25-$35.

Every Mom has heard of MAM. (My son loved the pacifiers in particular!) So it is super sweet that one lucky Mom to be will be gifted with a fabulous basket of MAM goodies, like these:

Whether you are a Mom now, or soon-to-be Mom, you will really appreciate not having to go to the grocery store the first week you bring baby home. But everyone needs to be fed, right? Which is why Peapod is the best baby gift. Order online while the baby is sleeping, and they deliver your order and put it away. How baby-licious is that? How about winning a Peapod $50 gift card. One person will win this fabulous new parent prize! Follow them on Twitter @PeapodDelivers!
Ooh, ooh (excuse me while I jump up and down), I just found out Treat Cupcake Bar in Needham is donating the cupcakes for my in-person party. They will be the ones to make the cupcake with either the blue or pink buttercream on the inside! Not only am I excited to see which it will be, and share the cupcake reveal with you during the Twitter Party, but I’m also excited to polish off one of those bad-boys! I wrote a review about them when they first opened and have been a big fan since. Follow them on Twitter at @TreatCupcake.
The details: the Twitter party will be on Sunday, March 25, 2012 from 8-9pm ET. Follow the hashtag #pinkorblue to win prizes, talk babies, gender reveal, registries and more. Follow me @CharChronicles, @MBeans and @TheBabyGuyNYC in order to be eligible for the giveaways! Of course, I’ll be posting lots of pre-gender reveal party blog posts where there will be even more opportunities to win goodies and get excited for the awesomeness so like my page on Facebook to stay on top of all the action!
