About IntelliGender

For the mom-to-be and baby...

Welcome to Intelligender! We have revolutionized baby gender discovery with the world’s first in-home, urine based Gender Prediction Test™. IntelliGender was founded in 2006 and has over 500,000 satisfied customers worldwide. At the core of our success is our goal of providing high quality, fun, affordable pre-birth experiences for the expectant mother and healthy essentials for mom and baby.

The Intelligender product line continues to expand, now including more exciting products for Mom and baby. Our new IntelliCeuticals™ products are made of proven remedies, herbal extracts, and flower essences all formulated to promote physical, emotional or psychological health and restore balance in the body. They are safe, effective, and designed to bring you relief from the stresses of pregnancy and early motherhood.

A History of Progress

Two working moms with seven children between them contemplated; “there must be a better way”. Fascinated about learning the gender of their developing babies as early as possible, they felt there had to be a way of bridging the curiosity gap between conception and Ultrasound. Early in 2005 they began identifying a group of medical and business professionals to help make this idea a reality. They assembled a world class organization ultimately forming IntelliGender® to research the development of an inexpensive, in-home gender prediction test. With an entrepreneurial spirit, they obtained the necessary capital and engaged scientists, chemists and engineers to help realize their dream. In November 2006, they launched the IntelliGender® Gender Prediction Test™, the world’s first, in-home, urine based test for gender prediction in the market. Intelligender quickly grew and is now available in retail outlets throughout the United States and in numerous countries around the world.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer parents-to-be a fun, affordable pre-birth experience to share the joy of discovery with their family and friends!”

Research and Development

From inception there has been a firm belief in solid science, strong investments in research and continual product and process improvement. Early after initial research began, the company founders sought out the foremost experts in the field. Shortly after the initial product was launched, a Nobel Prize winning chemist was added to the research team making significant contributions to continued product enhancements. Recently the company added a renowned microbiologist to the team tasked with bringing even more product innovations to the market. With the addition of the IntelliCeuticals line, an entirely new group of specialists have been added to the team with the goal of developing the world’s best and most innovative products for the pregnancy and early post pregnancy markets.

It's the Perfect Gift {Milson Road Review & Giveaway}


As a mom I love to give and get personalized, sentimental gifts. The person giving or receiving the gift put a lot of time, energy and thought into that personalized gift right? As a single mom I am always trying to keep the memories of *Chucky* alive not only in him, but in our small family. Whether it is pictures, home videos, artwork or even little drawings that he put onto scraps of paper, I like to keep them and show them to him and talk to him about what was going on that day and why he was laughing or drew that specific picture.
Milson Road is a company that helps keep all of these memories and more in a special place. Milson Road takes your pictures and memories past, present or future and puts them into The Daily Portrait- a personalized, commemorative, time capsule of memories in an elegant, beautiful 18x20 inch print with a custom wood frame that captures the emotion of a special event in a tangible, contemporary heirloom-A one-of-a-kind gift that only gets better with time.

There are many special occasions to choose from:
-Baby Girl
-Baby Boy
-Special Birthdays
-Bar & Bat Mitzvah;s
After you have chosen your occasion you then get to choose from 8 background colors as well as 11 frame/mat/plate combinations to personalize your frame.

The site is easy to use and navigate.
There are 6 steps to customize The Daily Portrait that you have chosen:{after you have chosen The Daily Portrait, background color, frame/mat/plate combination}
1. About the Special Birthday Recipient: -name- middle name- last name- gender- the name the recipient goes by(nickname).
2. About the Birthday: -which Birthday is it- what is the date of the current birthday(calendar is included)
-recipients place of birth- recipients parents names.
3. About the Event/Celebration- was there an event held- who attended- event type- event location- event city/state or country- recipients current residence.
4. They also have a section to put who gave the gift.
5. Choose your photos- you can either upload your own photo or choose from an assortment of photos that they already have selected to go along with The Daily Portrait that you have chosen.
6. You then preview and finalize your order or add special notes to the for the production staff.
Shortly after completing the above options you will be sent a preview of The Daily Portrait that you chose.

The Daily Report arrived and was packaged with a lot of TLC. There was a lot of bubble wrap-wrapped snugly around the frame and glass. What made it even more special was a sash wrapped around it with the Milson Road logo. Perfect for giving or getting as a gift!
Package arrived
Nice & snug in the bubble wrap
The sash
I chose The Daily Portrait for a Special Birthday for Chucky's first birthday. I also chose to go with the classic background, black frame, khaki and white mat and silver plate. We are extremely pleased with how it turned out! The frame is quiet substantial, the outer frame is a little over 21x28". The frame is beveled and the mats are heirloom quality. The hardware for hanging isn't a cheap and flimsy hook, it is a wire wrapped hanger{which says a lot about quality}. I have it hanging on the wall right as your walking into Chucky's room. It is the perfect spot because you can see it from the hallway and before you walk into his room.  
I also love the fact that he can look at this picture and see what the "current" events were or what celebrity shares the same day as his first birthday.

Bare wall.

Milson Road was extremely delightful to work with. I first chose the The Daily Portrait for a Baby Boy filled in the above information, uploaded my pictures and approved my preview. The next day I received a phone call not only from the company, but from one of the owners Mark Brown, he stated that the dates that I chose didn't go back that far and somehow mine slipped through. He was very kind and helped me to choose The Daily Portrait that was right for me. I then had a problem with the code that was given to me and went to the Contact Us page and thought that it would be faster if I used the customer service number that was provided. Little did I know that the number goes straight to one of the owners{Mark Brown}voicemail. Mark called me right back and helped me get my order finished and ready to go! *NOTE* None of which were Milson Road's fault!

From their site:

Milson Road. This has long been a sentimental favorite for us, so we felt it was the perfect name for our family-owned and operated business.

As our home-away-from-home during a time living in Australia, Milson Road represents memories of adventures, celebrations and special holidays spent with family and friends from near and far. Each spring, a large Jacaranda tree bloomed in a wild burst of lavender over Milson Road. This beautiful, annual event was always worth celebrating — and documenting — so we thought it only fitting to use its signature lavender shade and iconic branches to help tell our Milson Road story.

Those wonderful years back on Milson Road. Friends and family members began requesting their own versions of The Daily Portrait to commemorate important milestones in their lives and to give as gifts on special occasions. When we came back to the U.S., The Daily Portrait came with us, and so did the passion to someday create our company, Milson Road.

We are proud to share The Daily Portrait with you and your family. With this one-of-a-kind gift you can capture the events of an extraordinary day, and consider that day saved — forever.


The great thing about Milson Road is whether or not the special occasion has come and gone or if it is in the future they can help you out! If you choose to do one for a future birthday for example you just have to wait until that day has come because as nice as it would be they can not see into the future for that day's events. I think these make the most unique gifts.

Buy it:
You can purchase your personalized gift or gift card on the Milson Road website for $165.00.

Win it:
Thanks to Milson Road one lucky reader is going to get The Daily Portrait of their own to personalize!
