There is a scene roughly in the last third of Wonder where Auggie's parents Nate and Isabel (Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts) spend an evening together while the kids are out. Nate has a surprise gift for his wife. She opens the box just enough to see it, laughs, and closes it again. So I asked myself the question:

What's in the box?


My wife and I wondered this too. According to this Sydney Morning Herald article it was a different thing each time they shot the scene, and the audience isn't supposed to see it.

Roberts opens the box, but it's filmed in such a way that the audience can't see what's inside. [...] "There were different things each time she opened it," Wilson says. "What got the biggest reaction had to do with a reference to something the director said at the lunch. That really got her."
