I haven’t had my shower yet. But I would just smile and say thank you to both givers. Chances are the givers will probably joke about getting you the same thing. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

this happened to me two or three times at my shower.  teapot, griddle, cake stand.  I was excited enough to be receiving gifts anyway, so I thanked them just like anyone else.  In all likelihood, the guest is kind of embarrassed or slightly anxious about your reaction, so a normal attitude seems appropriate.  "Oh wow – thanks so much.  I just love _____, it is so _____."

First, its great that they used the registry, props to them for that, just say thank you in the same way to both guests, don’t make a big deal out of it, don’t want them to feel bad, and hey how come your peeking at what you got, supposed to be a surprise.. hehe

Thank each guest generously, as though they were totally different gifts. Chances are, one or both of the guests will offer to exchange it for you, or present you with a gift receipt, etc. afterwards, apologizing. Of course, assure them that you don’t mind, and thank them again.
