My boyfriend is going with me to my daughter in laws 30th birthday party. He does not exchange gifts or cards with his own adult children. What is the proper thing to do?

The proper thing to do is allowing your boyfriend to do what is comfortable for him. If he does not have a relationship with your daughter-in-law, the perhaps his helping her celebrate the wonderful passage can be his congratulatory card.
