    Very helpful. I like present guidance so I don't buy something that's not useful.

    We have written almost the exact same thing on DD's 1st and 2nd birthday invitations (but I asked for natural eg wooden, open ended toys - we are a Steiner family). The only person who took offense was my sister but she can be a bit of a cow anyway, everyone else appreciated the guidance!!!!

    Helpful.

    I would much rather buy the child something useful.

    I think it is a nice gesture / though to put the note in the invite but you will find most people will still buy a present.

    i dont like it.

    I just think it says..please bring a present.

    I would say..
    Please don't bring a present.
    if you really feel the need to, then please give me a call as we would hate to double up as people have been so generous.

    I think that by saying you should call, means we really are not expecting any presents.

    Sorry but I think it's rude - but then I hate any type of registry/poem like that included in any invitation, so am slightly biased.... I always figure if people need help, they'll ask, otherwise let them get what they'd like...

    Hope your little one has a great birthday!
