I think it’s perfectly fine to put no gifts on a birthday party invitation! At least, I wouldn’t be offended. If you were putting something like “cash only” or “Xbox one only” then I’d say no. But requests for charitable donations and/or no gifts at a bday party is a-okay!

We didn’t want gifts for our engagement party so my mom added “No gifts other than your presence required.”  We still ended up getting some things…I think some people just like to give gifts!

Usually people put, “best wishes only” to let people know not to bring gifts. It’s totally fine to include that on an invitation (:
