Generally everything has to wait, but my SO and I already knew what we were getting each other. He asked me for a wi fi booster for his laptop and I wanted him to see if it worked before christmas so if it sucked I could get him a different gift.
Now if only he would let me try my gift out.

Growing up I always opened all of my gifts up on Christmas eve.
So for my husband & I this works out great! We visit my parents on Christmas Eve. We open our gifts to each other then, along with the gifts to us from my parents. Then on Christmas day we go to his mom’s & mamaw’s & open our gifts from them that day.

My parents bought me and my Fiance a Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas!!!!!! EEEEE!!! Yes, I’m quite excited. I’m quite the baker and it has been my DREAM for like 7 years to own one of these. Anyway, they sent it to us early and I definitely unwrapped it. And I’ve been using it all the time.

@Juliepants: That’s what I do too. Everything else waits until Christmas morning.

Growing up, my and my sister would each open one gift on Christmas Eve, and the rest on Christmas Day. FI’s family opens stuff from his parents on Christmas Eve at their house, then we move to Christmas Day at his brother’s with his wife and their kids.
It’ll be interesting to see what traditions we make on our own, and how we mesh them with his family. (Mine is all east coast, so I/we visit them in Jan normally).

We always open ours on Christmas morning. There have been a few occasions where I knew what I was getting and wanted to use it before Christmas, so I opened it beforehand (like a new lens for my camera one year…I wanted to use it to shoot everyone else opening their gifts on Christmas morning so I just opened it when it came in the mail :P).

We always wait until Christmas morning. When I would go to my mom’s on Christmas eve, obviously we would do it then since I would be with my father in the morning.
The only breakage to the rule is that I got SO a replica of the charlie brown christmas tree He’s been asking for it for years, and it will be delievered today! So I’m going to let him open it so he can put it somewhere in the apartment.

We usually open a small gift on xmas eve as that is when we usually have xmas dinner with FI’s dad. Then we do our xmas, xmas morning with fun breakfast and everything. Then we go over to my family’s house in the evening and have xmas dinner and open xmas gifts. It is a good time. But yes, we wait till xmas morning to open all our gifts.

We usually open our gifts a few days early, so we don’t have to travel with them. (And have time to try them out, if necessary. )
I bought Fiance some slippers, since he’d been wanting a pair and I felt we’d passed the magical “ok, I can start getting you boring things like slippers now” milestone.
We broke all the rules for these slippers. He knew I was getting them, he knew how much they cost, and he knew where I got them from. He’d wanted them sooner over later, since his feet have been cold.
I still made him go in another room while I wrapped them.
