I need a theme for a non-gift wedding shower

One of my dear friends wants to throw me a wedding shower, but I don't want people to bring me gifts. What could we ask them to bring instead?

It's very kind of her to offer to throw the shower, so I don't want to turn it down, but I also don't want people to buy me gifts. It's my understanding that etiquette demands we only invite people who are also invited to the wedding, so that sounds like they'd be buying me two gifts and that makes me very uncomfortable.
What can we ask people to bring for a non-gift shower? I can only think of a recipe shower and there were a few ideas here
. Can you think of anything else?
P.S. I think if I say "no gifts," people might bring one anyway, and also I want them to bring something so we have an activity in the post-lunch "open-the-gifts" time.
