Guess like the bride: Everyone gets paper. You pick either the bride's name, the groom's name, or their last name. Write it vertically down the left side of the paper. Let's take "Brianna" for example. Everyone chooses one word for each letter of the name that has to do anything wedding/marriage related. Example, B=Bride, R=ring I=icing, etc. The bride does the same. The bride then reads off her answers and anyone who matches the bride's answers gets 1 point per correct match. The person with the most points wins. Note: Give a hint to the bride that she should be tricky and think of creative words to stump people!
If you still want some sort of present element without the pile of bows, you can ask guests to bring copies of their favorite family recipe, a favorite book, or a favorite photo or memory of them and the bride. (Write the memory down and put it in an envelope, with or without a photo, and let the bride open them whenever she feels like having a happy cry.) And remember, couples showers are Totally A Thing, and you can feel free to ignore anyone who tells you they're not.
