I would guess either a money/gift card holder  or a little thing where you write your best wishes and some piece of advice for the mommy to be.

Those are my two guesses.

ummm probably you write your wish for the new mom to be on the invite ad when you get to the shower you put it in the slot of the wishing well.

Either an unwrapped gift but it usually would say that. Sounds like a monetary donation like the have at weddings to stick ur money card into

As was mentioned above, it means that they will have something set up for monetary gifts.  Gift cards can also be put in.  Usually, when stated in that manner, it means there will be a little decorated 'well' for guests to drop money/gift cards into instead of bringing gifts.  It is actually pretty common for baby showers and weddings, especially if it is not the first child.

It is mostly for people that either can't get things off the registry or to offset costs.  I knew a girl that had a 'wishing well' at her baby shower several years back.  A lot of people tend to get the less expensive things from a registry, the 'well' lets them add a little to a pot to help with larger items.  She got tons of onesies and blankets and such, but needed to get the larger furniture items..the well gave her enough money to get a 3 piece set from a local children's store. 

You don't have to do everything, just what you can.  If you can spare a few bucks to add to the well in addition to getting something she can use after the birth, great, but not required.
