My daughter and myself were invited to a birthday this Saturday that we have been planning to attend. Party is combined for a little girl a year older than my daughter and her brother, who I think is a couple years older than her. My daughter doesn't hang around this girl (different grades), but she still wants to go to the party and although I am FB friends with the mom, we aren't really "friends."
Well, because of unexpected expenses last week, we can't afford to buy this girl a birthday gift (let alone her brother, but never planned to buy for him). Not sure what to do? Just say we won't come to the party or show up without a gift or contact mom and ask if okay to show up without a gift?

I would not go if I could not bring a gift. I would be too embarrassed & I'd make up an excuse especially since you both are not that friendly with these people. How about re-gifting something your Daughter has & some small thing from the Dollar store for the boy?
