Would you judge a parent who showed up to your childs birthday party without a toy? If you knew they couldn't afford it? Which is more rude, to not show up when you are invited because you can't afford a gift, or to show up with out a gift?? Had my friend ask and I wasn't sure what to tell her so I thougt I would get a few more oppionionsAnswer Question
I would hope that the host/hostess would be gracious in this situation and realize that their friends were unable to afford a gift and not have the kids open gifts during the party.
I see nothing wrong with attending a party with out a gift if you are unable to afford one.

Why can't people go to parties without gifts? Isn't the whole idea to have fun and enjoy the day with the birthday kid? I think it's rude to not go just because you don't have a gift. I am sure the parents and the birthday kid enjoy the company much more. I mean, food and cake costs a lot of money - I want people there to eat it, lol.
