Seems like more and more people are having no gift kid birthday parties, but every time we show up without a gift we are the only ones.

we havent' been to a party that said "no gifts" so i'm not sure, but if it said no gifts, then we wouldn't bring one.

We bring a card with a check. They can choose how to use it and it wont clutter their house.

I always get something just in case - something either big enough to need to "go back to my car" to get or small enough to fit in my purse. Then if others brought gifts, I can have something, but if not I can save it for another birthday.

I would donate to a charity of some sort in their name and then give them the card saying that you donated. Basically giving a gift to someone/something in need in honor of their birthday.

My sisters have no gift parties and it is so they won't have to deal with all the junk and toys. If you are uncomfortable not having a gift bring a card with some money in it or a book.

I've never been invited to a no gift party but I would probably bring a card with cash in it.
