    @bebero:  I would take a gift of some kind, and I’d most likely also bring a bottle or two of wine.

    Wine and a small gift.

    I would take a card. Not really a gift.

    I’d bring beer or wine, not a “real” gift – but that still counts as a gift in my book

    I wouldn’t bring a present, but I would bring some wine or liquor.

    Even if it weren’t a “birthday party” I think it’s nice to bring a hostess gift. Wine, potted plant, or flowers would all be appropriate. I don’t think adults really expect “presents” at an adult birthday party.

    I agree, something like wine or dessert or chocolates

    If I were invited to a birthday party for someone, I would take a birthday gift.

    I think it depends on the situation and how close of a friend this person is. In general, I don’t think adults really do birthday presents (though my best friends and I still do something smaller). A small host gift maybe, but not a “gift.”

    probably a GC to somewhere like amazon or a box store, nothing elaborate.  I get where he’s coming from but he’s not in HS anymore

    I’m confused… Why wouldn’t you bring a gift?

    I would bring something small like a bottle of wine, a card, some chocolate, etc…
