    My daughter that turned 14 had a birthday party and passed out invites to 10 friends. All RSVP that they were coming but the day of the party 2 friends cancelled on that day, so 6 showed up for the party, 2 empty handed (no gift or card for my daughter). Who does that? I felt so bad for my daughter but worse for the 2 girls.

    Well a few things
    1. Gifts are not required for birthday parties. They are a nice thing but not a requirement.
    2. Do you feel bad for the ones that canceled or the ones who showed up empty handed? Either way nothing to feel bad for them over in first case they missed out on a fun party on the second case well gifts are not requiored to be given.

      I understand perhaps feeling bad for the 2 without gifts. It’s possible that there might be financial difficulties in their family that prevented them from bringing a gift and if everyone else showed up with something, it might have been extremely embarassing for them. If that was the case, I would have had your daughter save all of her gifts to open at a later time so that there wasn’t more of a spotlight put on the issue.
