The DH decided to get us a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas. What a great gift for two coffee lovers to enjoy come Christmas morning, right? Well, he decided to open it today. I didn’t protest…to be honest, I was equally excited. Overall, it doesn’t upset me. We, especially him (lol), tend to do this a lot. Just the other day he got me a really nice cookware set that I’d been eyeing for some time and he insisted I open it already. He was so excited for me, lol.
There are certain things I make him/us wait for, putting my foot down.
Do you wait or are guilty of being an early opener?

We open them on Christmas Eve, at night. It’s what my family always did growing up.

That’s what we both did when we weren’t married, but now I’m not sure why we’ve become such early openers. lol.

We usually wait until Christmas morning, but if somebody sends something through the mail we usually open it in case it’s perishables! (Or at least that’s the excuse…) 😀

I always wait. To me, it kind of kills the fun and excitement of Christmas to open stuff early.

We open a small give on Christmas Eve, and all the other gifts on Christmas morning. This year will be different, though, because my parents will be on vacation for a month 🙁

I wore the boots DH bought me for Christmas yesterday… in my defense we won’t be together Christmas Eve/Day anyway.

We do Christmas morning. But since my Mother-In-Law took over all holidays, we have Christmas at her house on a completely different day than the 24th or 25th, therefore DH and I can have the actual Christmas day all to ourselves. It is lovely.

I grew up doing presents on Christmas Morning.. My fiance’s family did it Christmas Eve.. so we do something Christmas eve with his family..then we come home and do ours..so that Christmas morning is focused on his daughter.

We always wait until Christmas morning for family gifts, but if I were to see a close girlfriend before the actual day and we had gifts for each other, we’d just open ours up during our time together so we could see each other’s reactions!

LOL, since DH usually does NOTHING before christmas eve we wait. Last year my christmas gifts were all bought at CVS. At least this year he is making me my fork braclet so I know that I will like it, LOL.

I voted that we wait but thats not exactly true. Its important to us to have “our christmas” (mine and DH’s) in our own home alone, so if we’re not going to be home on christmas eve/day then we just do it the last day before we leave.
