Sorry to derail, OP.
For the next one I thought about writing something like
Please only provide gifts that are non-toxic, BPA free, sustainable, biodegradable, gluten and sugar free, halal, kosher, vegan, paleo, containing no pesticides or artificial fibres, produced only in Australia by ethical companies who donate to reputable charities.
I figured that means the same :-)

We do it for all our kids birthdays. Because the older 3 are so close together and we do 1 party for them, i feel like its a bit unfair to guests feeling like they need to buy 3 gifts so we just write "please, no gifts" or "we request your presence, not presents". Sometimes people will still bring gifts but its usually only close friends and it's usually something the kids can share like a board game. We will be requesting no gifts for dd4's 1st birthday as well, due to the fact we have so much stuff already lol.

For DDs 1st birthday we wrote something like "everyone has been so generous already and DD has all she needs, so in place of a gift you may wish to make a donation to help other children who are not so fortunate" or something to that effect, with a link to a donation page (email invitations). Most people respected the no gift thing.

I just received an invite to a 1st birthday party that asked for donations for the child's bank account in lieu of a gift. While that may be practical, I found it a little rude. So I got a gift instead lol.

I know someone who's DD bday is near Xmas time and asked friends to purchase a gift and place it under the Kmart giving tree instead. Very sweet idea.
