I’m not sure I’d put any wording in the invitation related to the gifts.  Does she have a number (or email) on the invite to RSVP?  If so, when people call her to express their regrets on not being able to attend, she can explain “if you’d still like to send a gift, feel free to send it to me for Linda to open at her shower.”  

You could also change the shipping address on your registry to hers from now until the shower is over.

 

ETA: As an edit, instead of her saying ‘if you’d like to send a gift…’ she should just mention that information if someone asks.  I feel like most people, if they want to send a gift, will ask where the best place to send it is.

i’ve never heard of asking people who can’t attent sending a gift, so I have no clue what ettiquet would be used except maybe.. not including it? *shrugs* I dunno.

No mention of gifts on invites is the way to go.  If someone is set on sending a gift (though I wouldn’t hold my breath) they will find a way to get it to you. 

I don’t know anyone who sends shower gifts to showers they cannot attend.
