Invitation Wording HELP!

I am planning my father's 70th surprise birthday party. My mother would like me to put "no gifts" on the invitation, but I would like to write it in a nicer way. Does anyone have any good ideas for "no gifts" on the invitation? I do need to send them out this weekend so any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

I've seen something like "no presents but your presence", but many will bring gifts anyway. Here are two other ideas;

-for a recent 60th birthday for a wine lover, each guest brought a bottle of wine, and I had sticky labels ready for them to print a wish and their names. Over the year, he'll let each guest know the occasion where their wine was opened, and the giver was toasted.
-for my Dad's "big 0" birthday, donations were collected for his favorite charity, and donated in his name.

I was thinking of something like "Your gift is your presence" so thanks for your ideas. I am sure some will still bring gifts but thats okay, I tried!

Thanks again!

You could put something like "gifts not necessary, your presence is gift enough"

I love the wine bottle idea!
