Are these acceptable gifts for my friend’s 40th birthday?

I’m 31.  One of my best friends is turning 40 this year.  He likes going to the cinema, so I thought of a $50 gift card and a beautiful birthday cake for his birthday.  He wants a party, but I can’t afford to throw another one, because many people with as much if not more money than me go and no one offers to chip in.  I can only work part time due to mental illness and food costs a fortune.  It costs me hundreds of dollars that I don’t have to spare.

    It an ok gift, & you do not need pay for a party for him. 

    If he asks why you did not & is offended or angry at you he is selfish & no friend!

    Surely he knows your situation.

    Surely others can arrange a party or buy him a few drinks at a bar etc.
