I agree with everyone else. I wouldn't put it on the invitation, but I would mention the store if they asked for gift ideas.
My kids got some gifts for their baptisms that I considered, well I don't want to say "inappropriate" because that seems too strong, but I can't think of a better word. It wasn't intentional, but I just set them aside to re-gift since I didn't know where they came from and they were nice items.
I woud just accept any gifts in the spirit they are given.
