"Gifts not expected, just the pleasure of your company, if possible."
We have never written the word 'gift' on invites, as it is against the etiquette we were taught.
However, if asked directly, and we didn't want presents, we would say so. If they insisted, we would request a book.

Maybe we should just invite people over for 'lunch', no invites and have cake as dessert (along with other nibbles of course). An informal party.

I remember mum just handing out invites, and booking for those people, because they would come (no rsvp needed). Now she invites, chases rsvps and books...sometimes there's extra people, sometimes less... drives her mad. The difference of 19 years!
