We have received some gifts ahead of the bridal shower due to people not attending or size of gift.
We haven’t opened any of them but I am wondering if we should to make a quick thank you call and then follow with a card.
I don’t want them to think that we are not grateful but feel weird opening them early.

I opened them when they came and wrote cards. I sent the cards out the day after the scheduled bridal shower. We did the same with wedding gifts that came from people not attending.

The gifts should be opened now and thank you notes sent asap, just as you would for any gift. You do not need to wait until after the shower, and shouldn’t. Sending the note now, lets the sender know that the gift arrived safely. You can add a line that you will miss them at the shower.
