Birthday party etiquette: presents from guests who can't make it?
Evidently, wrong. When a friend's son turned three, she invited six kids from his preschool. Only two of them could make it, but three of those who couldn't brought very nice ($25 ) gifts to the next day of school.
She wonders if the etiquette has changed - does the invitation itself now require a present? The only time I would give a present to a child whose party I couldn't attend would be if I was very close friends with the parent, or if I'd already purchased a gift specifically for the child, but couldn't attend at the last minute. What do you think?
