Birthday Invites with gift suggestion wording?

Ok I am making the invites for my little girl's 1st bday... I want to suggest in some way that she gets books instead of toys... which of these lines sounds better or do you know of a cuter way I could say this?

1st one....
"To make your shopping trip less hairy,
Just choose a book for Lanee's library!"

2nd one...
"The word from the Birthday Fairy
Is that Lanee's likes books for her library!"

What do you think of putting one of these on an invite?...
Thanks!

  • I wouldn't use either. It's tacky to ask for a give or even suggest. If they ask, then tell.

  • Second. I would say, "Is that Laney would like books for her library."

  • Anon :01 It's better to get items that would be used rather than useless things that will get given away or never used.

    OP-I like the 2nd one. Cute!

  • I like hubby's suggestion. And I don't think there is anything wrong with suggesting items. I have used store registry's in the past for my son to create his birthday wish list, etc. Everyone thought it was a great idea because they didn't have to search for stuff and my son actually got stuff he wanted.
