Would you consider it rude to include on a child's birthday invitation something to the effect of gifts aren't expected but if people did feel they wanted to give something then money to put towards an activity for the child would be appreciated?
My kids already have more toys than they need. We have a small house and really struggle for space so just shudder at the thought of more toys to find storage for
Personally I don't have a problem with someone suggesting gift ideas (infact I appreciate it!!) as I never know what to buy, and being a practical person on a budget I like to know I'm not wasting money - that my gift is needed / useful.
What does everyone else think? And how would you word it on an invite?
