I think you would probably be fine opening them now…it would also give you a chance to do a thank you note now so that you don’t get overwhelmed with them after the shower 🙂

I also opened mine ahead of time and send thank-you notes right away. Except for one gift, which a friend had sent to my MOH (who was hosting the shower) because she specifically wanted me to open it at the shower. 🙂

Anything that gets sent to your house, even if the person is going to the shower, is fine to open at home. If the person is going to the shower, sometimes they send it directly to the bride’s house so you don’t have to worry about transporting it after. Have fun!!! 🙂
