    You think waiting is torture? Just go ahead and set up the Christmas tree, place them under the tree and dare her to wait until Christmas...


    Double-dog dare her!

    I don't see a problem in giving them early unless you usually have some large family gathering with a gift unwrapping tradition. Giving the gift early doesn't mean you need to get another gift.

    Did you get the shampoo attachment? Because if you did you could save that part for Christmas.

    I'd wait Rube unless it's something really important she might need sooner than later - like a fire extinguisher.
