Bridal shower gifts

My Niece is getting married soon, and she just had a bridal shower givin to her by the women in her future husbands family, it was very formal. now her friends want to give her one and they are fighting and she is becoming bridezilla. so my question is. what is a bridal shower For? the bride maybe, and what i mean by that is the word (bride) does that mean that gifts are for HER, not the house, nor both of them, (example) smell good stuff,lingrie, romantic items,  Not pots and pans, dishes, and so on.  that is what you bring to the wedding for your gift for the both of them. am i wrong in thinking this way. by the way i was married 31 years ago so am out of the loop on this, need some input please
