<p>Throwing a small dinner party for DW for her 40th. She made out the short invitation list, which I used on evite.com. I did not specify to not bring presents although she and I are hardly expecting anyone to. However, I wouldn't want to discourage anyone from doing so if they felt so led. So, how should I handle? Should I follow up with an e-mail stating not to bring presents or just leave it and let the chips fall?</p>

<p>I think you could update the evite invitation with the information about no-gift.  If you don't want gifts I'd state it up front.  You will always get a proportion of the crowd that will bring gifts which will make the others who actually followed your stated wishes feel shitty......on second thought, don't say anything.</p>

This.  I'm one of those who will bring something anyway and make everyone else feel bad.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad5.gif" title="">  I can't help myself.  I shop for the perfect card for the recipient and then I think of a little something to go along with the card. </p>

<p>Don't put down "NO GIFTS" unless you absolutely mean it. </p>
