Are Birthday Gifts Mandatory When Attending a Friend’s Party? — Twitter Debates

Are birthday gifts mandatory for close friends?

This topic has been controversial for quite some time now, and the people of the bird app have their unfiltered opinions on it.

Recently, a user by the name of @__ceemee took to her Twitter account to share her two cents on the subject of attending a birthday party empty-handed.

“We too old not to be buying BIRTHDAY GIFTS for OUR FRIENDS … if you show up to your friends function without a gift then you need to turn around,” she wrote in the now-viral tweet. “Maybe it’s me but I was raised not to come empty handed to someone’s functions, especially a birthday function.”

She further explained her point by elaborating on what she felt like was/wasn’t acceptable.

While some refuted her statement by giving their own reasons as to why their presence is worth more than a present, others agreed that it was the disrespect for them!

A few blamed their lack of need to buy a gift on regional traditions, more blamed it on the fact that some people just simply don’t know how to be a good friend.

Take a look at what they had to say in the replies…
