Rich people give each other gifts. Why wouldn't I give a baby gift to a sibling who's well off? She doesn't deserve it?

If she's gluten intolerant, the pasta could make her extremely ill for days. She can't eat it.
So she can order the dam fish. What the hell, this isn't hard. Is she five years old? Is she required to finish her plate before she'll be allowed to leave the table?

You're going to kill edog, yannow.

This response was probably the best, truest and humorous response of the day so far.

Exactly. You give gifts to people based on what YOU can afford and are comfortable giving, not based on what they can afford to buy themselves.

You guys are hung up on gifts. I never said financially secure people don't deserve gifts. I'm talking about extravagant, expensive gifts. Would you give your wealthy sibling a mink stole? An 18 karat diamond ring? There are some things you give as gifts, and there are some things people can buy on their own.

Whatever, she can fake it. A plate of pasta and meatballs isn't going to kill her.
She's gluten-free. If it is because she has an allergy anywhere near as severe as a friend of mine has, then a plate of pasta certainly could kill her.
And she couldn't just ask for the vegetarian meal and pick out the stuff that she can eat. If there is pasta on the plate, she can't eat anything there.
I've been to several events with this friend, and he doesn't make an issue of it, just asks the caterer to fix a plate of whatever sides are safe for him to eat, and nobody has ever had a problem with that. Might have something to do with not wanting their catering company linked to anyone's death or something like that. It's hard to pick up any referrals when you kill any of the guests.

Two parts to my response...
First, extravagant and expensive mean different things to different people. Bill Gates and I are not on the same page. What I consider extravagant is determined by MY income, not the recipient's.
Second, they are talking about contributing to big-ticket gifts, not telling people to buy it by themselves. Why would it be appropriate to spend $20 on a box of diapers, but not to chip in the same $20 with a bunch of others to buy the 2-seat stroller?

Just curious, how did you make the leap from a stroller to a diamond ring or a mink fur? I don't know where you buy your strollers, but from what I have seen the mink and diamonds would have another zero or two in the price.

I will not even justify this ridiculous post with a response.

I have no problem with this. But they weren't just asking for a stroller, but many "big ticket" items. You might have to up your $20 donation.

No, they said if you would like to contribute, that would be great. They didn't say "As a group, we are buying this, this, and this, and your share is $____.
I have gotten a couple "invitations" like that, and I didn't even bother to respond.

Wow, are you so hung up on the fact that you have a soul sucking job that pays squat that you begrudge someone who actually worked and finished their education and has a better-than-you income a gift? Really? Jealous much?
