My husband and I are living in Chicago for the year. My entire family and group of friends are all in LA. I wasn't going to have a shower at first but I have decided to go ahead and have one when my aunt offered to throw it for me in LA. My question is- I'm in Chicago, the shower is in LA... Does anyone have suggestions as to how to deal with the presents? Should I bite the bullet and pay to have them all shipped to Chicago? Should people send them directly to me in Chicago but then not see me physically open them at the shower? Someone suggested having people ship to Chicago and bring a print out of what they got me that I could open and reveal at the shower... I was wondering if anyone had some other creative ideas that I could do in lieu of having to ship everything.
Thanks in advance!
