We are very fortunate that many out-of-town relatives will be coming to our baby shower because I have a very close knit extended family. We are registered on Amazon and Babies R Us and in the last few days, we have been receiving lots of packages from those companies and I'm guessing they're gifts from relatives who are coming to the shower but don't want to have to fly with a gift. Right now, I've left everything in boxes but I wanted to know how we should handle these gifts. Do we take them with us to the shower and open them there? Or, do we open them beforehand and tell people at the shower what these relatives got us?
Also, I've received some gifts from relatives who won't be attending the shower --- do we take those gifts to the shower with us and open them there?
