If a friend (not a best friend) or coworker invites you to a birthday party at their house (meaning they provide food and drinks and you don’t chip in, pay your tab at a bar or BYOB) would you take a birthday present?

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

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…
