  • Wrong. If the person wants to know, they should ask.

  • It is not right. What is worse, is a party invitation we received a few years ago for the first birthday party for twins- they had registered for gifts at Amazon.com. The party was also at a fancy place, not child friendly at all. Needless to say, we did not go or send a gift. Tacky!!

  • TACKY! Gifts are expected at a birthday party, that's pretty standard etiquette, but it's not a shower!

    Honestly, I have so many issues with kid's birthday parties anymore that when DS brings home an invitation I am just so tempted to "lose" it. Good luck with this party, it sounds like it's going to be a winner.

  • It's incredibly tacky. There is a woman who works with my husband who has one large party a year for her kids (so you have to take 4 gifts, not just one). Each year we get an invite with a list of sizes and wants along with what kind of food to bring. Once she even asked my husband if he would get to his band to play, and when he told her the band eats free (he didn't ask for them to be paid), she said never mind. Needless to say we never go to her parties.

  • I think it is the parents who need to worry about buying their kids clothing unless a friend of theirs wants to buy them a souveneer t shirt from someplaceI would leave the size off the invitation.
