Yes, I think it is EXTREMELY rude, especially the way you worded it throughout. Honestly, I can't think of a better way to word it to not sound rude and ungrateful. If I received something like that from someone, I would not buy a single thing for them or this child(ren). Ever again.
Also, this is way too late in the year IMHO to be even talking about gift requests and lists of what not to buy. Many people shop earlier, and some throughout the year.
