My daughter is special needs and is now 6 years old. I know EXACTLY what you mean. This happens with us every year and why have I not thought of doing a wish list! I think people would really appreciate a list that you have created so they know exactly what you feel your daughter would enjoy receiving that she could actually use. I had no idea what to tell people to get her. Like you, we would receive gifts that she could not use. This year I thought about asking people to just donate money to a certain charity of our choice in place of gifts. Turns out my daughter was sick and we had to cx her party twice. Anyway, I think your choice of words is perfect...something about a gift not being necessary and that their attendance is gift enough but that you've put together a list of things you feel your daughter would love should anyone wish to bring a gift.
