Baby shower etiquette

What is the etiquette for gift-giving for a baby shower nowadays?

I receive evites for them with a link to the baby registry. Do people buy gifts from the baby registry, mail it to themselves so they can wrap it up, and then attend the baby shower with said wrapped gift?

I attended baby showers where I bought some gifts from the baby registry via amazon, and amazon made it so easy to mail the gifts directly to the to-be-parents' house...but then when I attend the baby shower empty-handed, it felt weird even though i already had the gifts sent beforehand.

What do people do?
