I would register at a store you know will be present in your new location in the US, such as Bed, Bath and Beyond, or something like Amazon. After the shower, return any gifts purchased at the Canadian store and ask that they be sent to your new home from their American store. Or, just get a credit and re-purchase them yourself after you move.

Since the whole point of a shower is to give you gifts, and have you unwrap them in front of everyone, there’s no real way to have a shower and not get gifts. You can always skip the shower though. It’s not a mandatory activity.

My sister just did this exact same thing a few months ago when she moved! We did a Tupperware shower, and she was able to pack all her things in the modular mates and bowls and containers. And we packed it all in the back of the car when she moved to Louisiana!

Does your fiancé currently live in Tennessee? If so, have all gifts sent there and ask shower guests to bring with them a card with a photo of the gift they gave. You can open up the cards at the shower.
