    1. Not proper etiquette to ask for a gift.

    2. It is unspokenly understood by everyone, that if they are invited to your birthday party, they will bring a gift.

    There is NEVER a way to request a gift without being tacky. Their presence is considered gift enough but most people also understand that it's considered impolite to show up at someone's party empty handed.

    I don't think you should ever request a gift. Some people really get offended about stuff like that.

    You shouldn't. It's rude. You should never expect a gift from people, but be grateful when they give it to you.

    Now, that's the stock etiquette answer. There's not really a polite way to request a gift for yourself unless someone asks specifically what you want for your birthday.

    That would be tacky. You can request that no gift is requested. But to tell guests what to bring is tacky.

    Never a good idea, really. People gift their friends out of their feelings for them and their ability to afford it.
