Is it rude?

To make a wish list for my daughters 1st birthday? I wrote a not to them saying if they'd like to get or make her something, here is an idea of what she needs. Is that rude to do? It's just everyone asks what to get and this way they can check out the store or check it out online for ideas.

  • If they ask, then tell them. Don't offer it on your own. It could be seen as rude.

  • i don't think so. that way you dont get unnecessary things. its their choice whether to buy it ir not, its not like you're forcing them. also, they asked.

  • I dont think its rude. All the parents I know of little ones send a note inside the invite saying "little ___ likes trains, planes etc. And wears size "x" shoe and size "x" clothing. It saves a lotof questions when they call to rsvp.

  • It is mildly tacky/cheesy.... alot of people WILL ask if you give them a bit of time.

    I was once invited to a kids 1st b-day that was a book party. Books only. It was the theme, cake, etc and the only gift requested. Because it was the entire theme, though, it fit nicely on the book shaped invite and was adorable and not cheesy whatsoever.

  • I personally don't think its rude..but my dh's niece did that for her daughter and he said it was rude. I said..well everyone always calls and asks what to buy your kid anyway, so whats the difference..saves a phone call,lol.

  • I think it would be a little rude, but I've had lots of people ask what my kids like when they call to RSVP for parties - and most people now attach a gift receipt to their gift so it's not a problem to return anything that isn't needed.
