    If its a Co-ed shower, I think you & your FI should open gifts together.  Just prepare him for awkwardness if you get a breast pump or something!

    If it was a shower just with women, I would think its weird if your FI was there opening gifts.

    Absolutely he should open them with you.  It’s his baby too and techinically the gifts are for both of you.  Honestly, in this case it might me a little rude to NOT have him help.

    Our shower is tomorrow and it is also co-ed. I fully intend on DH being right next to me opening gifts and when they make me wear that STUPID hat of bows and wrapping paper he’s gonna wear one as well. Lol. So I say don’t worry about it. 🙂

    at every coed shower I’ve been to, the couple opened the gifts together.  They are for both of you, and I would expect you both to open them.

    If it’s coed you should definitely do gifts together.

    At a co-ed shower you should oepn them together.  The gifts are for both of you, it would be very strange if you opened them on your own without him.

    Definitely do gifts together.  If my husband opened a breastfeeding pump gift, then he’d be like “well thanks!” And then our family would have a good-natured laugh.  So yeah, I think doing gifts together is good especially since it is co-ed.

    @PixelMePretty:  It’s his baby too. So if he’s there, I think it’s better to open them together.
