So our friends invited us over for their 2yo bday party. Only thing is, we do NOT have the money to get her anything. We are barely getting by and sometimes dont have enough money to buy ourselves food and we have ended up borrowing money from our parents. Will it be super rude to show up and not get her something? Do you think if we explained to them that we just cant afford anything atm that they would understand?
I wouldn't be offended if someone showed up to my kids bday without a gift, BUT your friend may be. Can you just talk to your friend and be like "we would love to come, but money is tight so we don't have any money for a present, we're sorry about that." They may say "That's fine, come anyway." or just "I understand, thanks anyway." So at least you know how your friend feels about it. It may be more rude to them to just NOT show up at all. That's a tough situation, I'm sorry!
We plan on showing up no matter what. The one guy was actually one of my husbands groomsmen and he was my husbands former foreman at work, so they are really good friends. So hopefully they understand, I just feel bad that we are going to show up with no gift kwim?
no it wouldn't be rude.
we are having a bday party for both of our boys. their birthdays are 2 days apart.
my sil send me a msg saying that she couldn't come because she doesn't have money to buy them gifts.
i told her, that honestly we don't mind if nobody brings presents we just want ppl to come and join us in celebrating their birthdays.
but she still won't come. =( she doesn't get a long with her mother and since she is going to be there she won't show up. =/
I think it would be rude of THEM to not want you there if you didn't bring a present for their kid. I don't think anyone should feel obligated to by my kids anything I just like people there celebrating the birthdays with us.
