I know that this has been discussed before in general, but does anyone know what the proper etiquette is regarding the opening of shower gifts? I won’t use them as a matter of superstition, but I didn’t know if I should save them for the shower.
I know that wedding gifts should be opened right away and thank you cards sent. However, showers seem to be different beasts.

In case anyone has the same question, I asked this of the editors at Brides.com and was advised that I should open the gifts and send a thank you note right away.

Save them for the shower. Open them up and ooh and ahh over them just as you would for those who are present. Send a thank you after the shower describing what a nice day it was and how much the sender was missed.

We just received our first gift today. We opened it and I already have the Thank You card ready to mail. I personally would want to know that the couple received the gift as soon as possible for ease of mind.
