Hi Yogigal

There are no set rules but it’s generally nice if your FH shows up at the tail end of the shower (say the last twenty minutes). He can say hello to your guests, thank your hosts and help pack up the presents (and you are going to need help, trust me). 

One gift to thank his Aunts should suffice. I’m sure they’ll love the gift baskets!

Have fun!

I agree.  He should come at the end to help pack up, and be able to individually speak with the guests.  A personal moment is always nice.

 

Happy showering!

I agree that if he is around he should come to your shower at the very end to say hi to guests and to help pack up your loot : )

I would give them afterwards; whenever I get something after the event, I feel like the person I hosted for appreciated me so much that they took time out after to think of me.

I gave my hostesses their gifts after everyone had gone home and it was just us left. I think they appreciated having a gift to open after having to watch me open so many!

I also had a small gift for everyone who attended my shower which I gave out as people were leaving.

I plan to go with MsB’s strategy.

Yep, I say right after the shower would be nice.

My shower is Sunday and very close to our house so we plan to have my Fiance come at the very end to say hi and pick me and the gifts up. I was going to give the hosts their gifts after I opened mine, as I read on one of these posts that it is the best time.
