Have any of you heard of this site? http://www.webbabyshower.com/
I think it's a great idea! A friend of mine is doing it since she has friends and family all over the U.S.
You can guess the due date and the Mother to be can register at Target, Babies R Us, etc. That way when friends visit the site they know what the expecting mother wants.
I wish I would have know about this when my family and friends were on opposites coasts when I was pregnant.
