I posted previously about a cousin of mine and his wife that expecting a few days before dh and I. I talked to her Mom and her MIL (my aunt) and it seems no one is having a shower for her. This probably has something to do with the fact that she was less than gracious when we threw her a Bridal Shower. Either way, my cousin is in the military and they live far away from everyone. I talked to her, and it seems we can't figure out a time to throw a shower because the only time her schedule would allow for it would be on one specific Friday that is in about a month. She already told us that no other day that same weekend would even work.
What are everyones thoughts on a Long Distance Shower? Since they are also having a shower for me, would it be tacky to ask everyone to say a little something on video to let her know we want to wish her the best of luck or even set up a video chat so we can talk to her and include her a bit and let them know if they would like to bring a gift, we will be sending things to her as well? We don't want to make it a gift grab instead of a celebration of the new family. Or do we send more of a pregnancy announcement and let them know if they would like to send a gift or card to send it to a specific address? It's touchy right, because we don't want to offend anyone or make it look like we are trying to be greedy. We just want to do something nice.
We want to give her a shower, but we just don't see how it is possible to do it if she cant be present. Does anyone have any other creative ideas on how to do this?
