Baby showers can be a lot of fun in real life, but when you host a virtual one it can be fun as well just as long as you are up for the challenge. Social media has allowed people to make friend from all walks of life and even get more insights about people than you would if you knew them in real life. If you want to have some fun with a virtual baby shower for one of your professional friends, use the tips below.
Create an Event on Facebook. The easiest way to do this is through an “event” on Facebook. Here you can invite all her friends and she can leave information you may need without the whole world seeing it (with the exception of the government of course).
Have all the women practice mothering skills. Mothers are supreme multi-taskers. One way to play this game to have the women go get something to drink, then follow a list of silly tasks. The woman who gets back to her computer first with her drink wins the game.
Play the question game. Children see mothers as all-knowing, so she has to be prepared to answer anything. Ask bizarre questions and the first woman to get the right answer wins that round. For insurance, you might ask what is a treadmill desk (note: professional women likely work around this every day but probably have no idea what it is). Why is the sky blue? How long is forever? These are just some samples.
Offer virtual gifts. The mother-to-be may not want to give her physical address out, so you can always give her virtual gifts like Amazon.com cards, links to free books for Kindle, iTunes funds, or even give her donations to PayPal. If you really want to make a group effort and she allows you to have her address, purchase items from friends in the group who sell things online. You might even ask them to donate items as prizes for the games!
