Yes agree with others – state we appreciate the thought but please no gifts as our daughter has been lucky enough to have more toys/books etc than we can use.
I suggest giving another option such as putting money towards a bigger thing such as swimming lessons, dance etc, or a pass for zoo or annual pass for anything in your area you’d use, or towards a bank account for their future or saying you have a ‘major’ item you’d like to get and if the guests feel they’d still like to give then some money towards this ‘item’ (whatever it is) would be appreciated. But yes some people do like to bring gifts no matter what. But with a bigger item or classes or a pass then I think they’re more likely to contribute and still feel as tho they’re giving a gift.
