nawella:  If someone sent me a gift I would open it at home and send them a thank you card. I wouldn’t take it to the shower if it was sent to me at home, no sense lugging it around. I suppose you could mention it if you like, but that seems unnecessary.

nawella:  I would open it at home. There is an off chance that this is more of a wedding gift than shower gift. If it turns out to be a shower gift, I would take it to display. If it seems more of a wedding gift, send the thank you card now.
