baby showers for friends out of state

Hi ladies, my very dear friend moved away about 1.5 ago so her husband could attend dental school. She is excepting baby number 1 and does not have any family close. I would love to try and throw her sometime of shower, but she isn't returning to our state before the baby. Did anyone have a similar situation? If so, did your friends or family do something for you? A card shower? Or anything cute? I don't live near family but I was able to fly home for a baby shower but she is in a different situation and won't be returning until the baby or 4 or 5 months old. I would love to do something for her before the baby. TIA

  • Have you talked to her mom to see if she was thinking of something? You could always surprise her and get like 4-8 of her closest friends and family and go visit her for a Saturday or rent a hotel and do a Saturday/Sunday. (I'm assuming you ladies could do that since it's only 1.5 hours away) If it's actually further than that -- call/email/send a letter to a majority of her family and friends and say you were thinking of doing a card shower and you could send one giant package to her of gift cards and small goodies OR everyone can order online and get it shipped to her. I hope all that made sense....it's been a long week LOL

  • I live across the country from my family, so they threw a mail/card shower for me when I had DD. My cousin was the "host" and sent out invites explaining what they were doing and then there were prizes for things like most unique gift, first gift I received, etc. It was so nice to get gifts and sweet cards from my loved ones.
