Birthday Party Invitation Wording

My daughter's 1st birthday is coming up in another month and as we started planning it the guest list is getting quite big.  We never had a house warming since we didnt have the chance before having the baby, so while we are hosting primarily a birthday party, we are also inviting a bigger group to kill two birds with one stone and use the occassion to just through a party at the house. That being said, I know that grandparents/cousins and perhaps a few others will very much want to buy gifts, but I don't want anyone to feel obligated and I do not want to spend time opening gifts at the party. What is the best way to handle this? Just the standard "No presents but your presence" wording and verbally telling select family members they can come early/later if they want to do gifts?
