gender reveal

This is my first baby. And I'm very excited and this may be my only child I have. I want to go all out. I want a little gender reveal and a baby shower later in pregnancy. However there are a lot of people that hate gender reveals. I don't want gifts or anything. Just a time where me and some friends play games laugh and eat snacks. And I'll be leaving college before I have my baby, and I know that may be my last time seeing most of my friends there. What should I do?
