When going to a wedding shower, I purchase two sets of booties. I nicely wrap 1 blue bootie and 1 pink bootie. I wrap the 2 booties and put a note in the box. I do not sign the card. The note reads something like this.
Will it be a boy, or
Will it be a girl?
Invite me to your baby
Shower and you will get
The 2nd bootie at that time.
I have even gone to another city and had it mailed to the address on the RSVP, just so the bride has no idea where it came from. Hard to keep it a secret, but it gets everyone wondering "who sent it". That really throws everyone off.

I've seen this done but with this poem attached:
Here is one little baby shoe,
But one little shoe will never do,
So when you need the other one,
You'll find out then where this came from!
How cute and clever!
I don't know that seems awful presumptuous. What if the couple do not plan to have kids? Or even worse what if they are unable?
