If they’re mailed to you I think it;s okay to open them.  I would write all the thank you as promtly as possible, but I think if you want to wait until after, that’s fine too.

I don’t think it’s rude either way. You might want to open the gifts that are mailed to you as soon as you get them so that you can make sure they’re in good condition and didn’t get damaged during shipping. And if you do decide to open them before your shower, write the thank you card right away so that the gift giver will know you got the gift!

But if you decide to wait, nothing wrong with that either! You can bring them with you to the shower and open everything together! Have someone take a photo of you as you open the gift and you can send the photo with your thank you! Just an idea 😀

Are you driving or flying? I’m asking because you may want to ask the person who gave you the gift if they want you to open it now or wait until the shower. Some people really like to see you open presents. We had our first shower this past weekend and FI’s parents gift was accidently shipped to my house and they told me not to open it and to save it for the shower. So I did…and it was lovely…like a million count duvet cover that I have been watching on my registry trying to figure out who bought it!!! 🙂
