What is the proper etiquette for attending a gender reveal party in terms of bringing a gift? We will likely not be invited to the baby shower (it’s my husband’s employee and wife’s gender reveal)

I think it's unusual for people to do both. So, I usually ask if they have a registry. If they don't- I go with a few clothes & toys + a gift card

I don’t think gifts are expected for a gender reveal just an excuse for a gathering. But once the registry comes out just buy a gift off there. We had a virtual gender reveal (2, one for family, one for friends) just to get people together and it was a blast. I haven’t even made my registry.
