What Is WebBabyShower?
If you are wondering, “What is the best virtual baby shower website platform to use?”
then you’re in the right place. We are the original online platform for shower websites and have continued to be the #1 solution for online baby showers. We have been recommended in major pregnancy publications like Babylist and What to Expect.

WebBabyShower is ready-made to meet the individual criteria of a virtual baby shower but with full privacy protection that you can’t get with a Facebook event.

Throwing a baby shower is one of the most special events for an expecting mom.

Virtual Baby Shower Considerations
As you might imagine, there are many considerations that are quite relevant to hosting an online baby shower. Expectant parents have a lot on their plate, so it can be helpful to assign host duties and to break down the responsibilities beforehand to be sure that everything will run smoothly at the event. Here are some of the top factors to keep in mind when preparing for your virtual baby shower:
Budget for Baby Showers
As with planning any type of party, you need to think about your budget. This is a very important consideration. Online baby showers tend to be on the lower end of the budget scale. This is due to the money saved by not having to rent a venue or provide food and drinks. Get Started Now.
Virtual Baby Shower Connection and Video Chat
With a long-distance baby shower component, you are connecting everyone through an online website. However, this brings its own set of technological considerations. As the host, you need to think about whether your guests and the expecting parent(s) have available internet access, their level of computer savviness, and what type of accounts and devices they have for social media and live video chat or video calls.
Be sure to provide all guests with full and complete details of how to navigate WebBabyShower and our website, and be sure to answer any questions that they may have for you.
Activities, Shower Games, and Video Calling
Of course, with a baby shower, it is much more than getting everyone together. There are many other considerations that you may have surrounding the virtual baby shower itself.
You will be happy to know that WebBabyShower has done the “heavy lifting” for you and your guests to make it easy to host a virtual, long-distance baby shower. On our website we have put together a home page, guest book, gift registry links, photo album, video album, “Birthday Bets” game, quiz-style baby shower games, baby photo guessing games, adorable baby shower themes, a guest list manager, an invitation manager, privacy options and more. To use WebBabyShower, there is nothing for the host or the expecting mom to download and your guests do not have to create an account in order to participate.
Our focus is on giving you the options and ideas to create the virtual baby shower party of your dreams! We don’t want you to feel so restricted by the constraints of an online party. There is plenty of room for creativity and fun, and that’s what you get with our virtual baby shower event platform.
Hosting a long-distance baby shower can be as simple or as elaborate as you have the time, energy, and budget for.
Virtual Baby Shower Guests
Guests are another important consideration at virtual baby showers. You want to be sure that everyone is included. We have touched on this throughout the article, but WebBabyShower’s website platform is ideal for ensuring that you can invite and include everyone you want to on the list of guests.
At virtual baby showers, not only are you able to include people from near and far, but it is much easier to schedule a time that works for everyone due to the fact that travel is not a factor. Additionally, if someone can’t make it at the scheduled time of the virtual baby shower event, they can still leave a note or a message using the guest book at their convenience!
Gifts, Babylist, Invites, and More
You can stick to using just the online features of your WebBabyShower, or you can add extra personal touches with favors, gifts, and a personalized shower invitation or thank you card.
Just because it’s a virtual baby shower party, doesn’t mean there can’t be real-world elements such as invites, games, and gifts. You can even choose to send your personalized invitations by traditional mail if you so choose. For gifts, you can register on a baby registry and help your guests to navigate the gift-giving process.
