Beach Theme Shower: If the bride loves the beach, a beach themed shower is perfect for her, setting her up with gifts she can use on her favorite outing. This can be hosted, literally, as a beach party when the weather is good, or with beach themed decorations in someone's home. Perfect party favors might be: sunscreen; beach ball; beach towel.
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.
