I would definitely look because I have 0 willpower. But I would really wish I hadn’t looked! Stay strong!!!

Personally I would look because I just couldn’t help myself, but try not to! I just couldn’t stand the thought of getting all excited and then finding out it was a pair of earrings for his grandmother :/

… just sayin’

Don’t look! Just think of how much better the moment will be when you are truly, completely surprised, and not just pretending this is the first you’ve seen it! You don’t want to start off married life by keeping that kind of secret ๐Ÿ™‚ I found the valuation certificate for my ring in DH’s car (I didn’t open it, just saw the front of the brochure) and worked *so hard* to pretend (to myself) it wasn’t what I knew it was. It’s worth it in the end to not short change you or your SO ๐Ÿ™‚

DON’T LOOK! you will have the rest of your life to spend countless hours looking at it. In the meantime distract yourself and get out of the house so that you wont be tempted to look.

Wow I know if that happened to me it would be EXTREMELY hard not to peek, but honestly you want to be surprised so DONT DO ITTTT!!

Real life example: I peeked at my Christmas present (a laptop) from my Boyfriend or Best Friend and when I opened it I “acted” surprised and he figured out I peeked (hey, not my fault its a huge box and he hides it and the receipt is such an obvious place!) So yea, after that, I vowed I would never peek at a gift again b/c it bummed him out I knew my gift.
