I would not put this on an Invitation, but if I'm asked what I want as a gift, I will ask for a Gift Certificate.
When I have to give a Gift, I usually give cash. I prefer people to buy what they need/want rather than I buy something that will be given away, thrown away, or not used. That is wasting my hard earned money

Its tacky to ask for it but it's better than useless gifts like ugly plates

Have the party that you can afford with no anticipation on gifts or dont have the party at all. It is offensive. It's always the most ungrateful, tight wadded person that you know throwing a big sit down gala and getting pissed that the guests didnt give generously enough to cover costs for the venue, food, band, hair, nails and evening gown/tux. They may as well sell tix in advance and get their money upfront.

I always cover my plate plus extra for a sit down meal per plate affair and I decline the rsvp without hesitation if it is someone hosting an event just for gifts.

LOL  I don't like that too much either (I know you're joking). I was invited to one of those type birthday parties not to long ago. $75 tickets per person. I just wrote them a check for the amount and sent our regrets.

I know a birthday is an event just like a wedding or baby shower, but it just seems tacky as hell to me to ask for money for your birthday.

I don't mind it for weddings/baby showers etc cuz I'd rather get someone something useful than something they're gonna return or re-gift anyway.

I don't think I'd have the balls to say something like that tho.

LOLYes, my friend recently told me that her niece was hosting her own 'Red carpet 40th birthday party' and the tix were $50. I smiled, then I laughed like 'shyttttt', then I sweetly said 'have fun at the party'Tongue.
