I am hosting a baby shower for my brother and sister-in-law virtually on Facebook and want to make it super special. They’ve been through a lot in their pregnancy journey, and in this era of social distancing, they’re certainly feeling the strain.
I want a fun and unique virtual baby shower that will provide lots of laughs for the expectant parents and the guests. I am not doing a live or video chat. I just created the event with links to their registry. I already posted a toy raffle and will announce the winner on the day of the “shower” via the event. I need other ideas!
Most traditional games won’t work since we won’t all be in person or on video together. But with a few alterations, some of the favorite shower games can still be adapted for a virtual crowd. Fresh ideas are welcome too. I just want to give some excitement to everyone and not make it look like we’re just asking for gifts.
How do I make this event feel extra special? What are some unique baby shower games and prizes to include?

Such a great idea!
Perhaps you could also have guests send you one piece of parenting advice before the party. Put those pieces of advice onto a presentation and share them. Also you could play name that tune where each guest lists 10 songs with the word “baby” in them and mix in some song titles for little kids like “Baby Shark.' to send to you before the party. Have guests try to be the first one to correctly guess the song (this can be played in teams or individually).
You could also set up a competition where guests have to send in a photo of a play-doh baby that they each design or drawing that wins a prize?
I just did a video for my sister as a "virtual baby shower". I used Vidday.com. It's a great site that generates a link and an easy platform for your guests to submit their videos. Then the company publishes the video for you with cute graphics and music at a very reasonable rate. We asked the guests to share their due date predictions, baby name ideas, and baby advice.
I had a baby last year and my sister found a website that was an online pool for guessing the baby's due date, weight, height, and gender. It was called Babybookie and was really fun to see everyone's guesses!
