I don’t think you need to, particularly where you don’t know the hostess.  If I have a friend/family member who is throwing a home shower though I usually ask in advance if I can bring anything!

No you do not need to bring the host a gift. The bride will give the host a gift.  You might want to help in the set up or clean-up if you arrive early or leave late.  But no need for a hostess gift.

I agree that you definitely don’t need to. Obviously, it would be a lovely gesture, but it’s not your responsibility. =)
