I'm a follower and my birthday present would have to be the trip my fiance planned to Tennessee. He ended up proposing on that trip.

Happy birthday!

For my 21st birthday, my girlfriends from college begged me to leave my dorm room (I was studying, as usual, I was an Engineering major;-(). The four of them "dressed" me and we walked to a neighborhood restaurant for dinner and my "first" glass of pinot grigio. Along with the wonderful gift of being treated to dinner, I received a purple linen covered woman's journal with inspiration quotes and affirmations. I just began to use the journal (7 years later) to record my pre-wedding activities, my wedding vows, and possible baby names.

Happy B-Day!!

The best birthday present I ever received was a star. I've never met my father. Heck, I don't even know what his name is, but for my 24th birthday I received a star. The certificate that came with it read "The Official Order of Geeks and Weirdos decrees that star (random coordinates) is hereby named 'Carrie's Dad'" so I had a father who could look down on me at all times. While this person is now an ex, it was the most thoughtful and heartwarming present I've ever gotten.

Happy birthday! One of my favorite birthday gifts was small but meaningful- a friend bought a large bag of starbursts, and weeded out all the orange and yellow, leaving only the red and the pink- my favorites. She wrapped the entire parcel in red tissue paper and decorated the envelope of the card in red hand-drawn stars. It was so simple, but it was very personal. A statement of how well she knew me, and how much effort friends to show one another that they care.

Happy happy birthday! My favorite birthday gift I received was "The Giving Tree"... it has a lot of sentimental value to me. My great aunt gave it to me the first year I was in college and away from home. It reminded me of home and now I always have it by my side!

Happy Birthday!
Last year, one of my dearest friends made me a plush unicorn head mount (like felt taxidermy). It stems from an inside joke about my hatred of unicorns.
It was a completely personal and fun gift that truly shows thought and love.
It hangs proudly above my computer desk.

Happy Birthday! :]

My favorite birthday gift was this adorable 3ft tall Pink Teddy bear my boyfriend got me, and he wrapped it in a box with matching pink wrapping paper. It was sooo cute and I love him and Pinkie(my bear) to death.

I'm a follower and my fave birthday present i'd have to say was probably... when my FH cooked up all my fave dishes and invited all my friends over for a feast... although other material gifts were givn, i'd have to say that was by far the best gift b/c of all the work he put into it!

CaymenIslandBride said...

I'm following! When I turned 16 my mom gave me a quilt that her mother made and gave to her on her 16th birthday... hopefully I'll have a daughter one day and I'll pass it on to her on her 16th birthday.

Congratulations on your 3rd birthday I Do Originals!

The best birthday gift I ever received was an emerald ring from my grandmother. It was the ring my grandpa gave to her when they were 17 and dating, right before he left for war. She also gave me the appraisal for the ring she had done back then...it meant so much to me..

The best birthday present I ever received was a WIG! Yes, that is right, a WIG. My friends and fiance suprised me by dolling me up with a new wig, and bringing me to a club where all of my friends and family were having a wig party! Best birthday ever! It also happened last year on my big 3-0!

Happy Birthday!

I'm a follower. My best birthday present would have to be when my fiance took me to see Madonna in concert. I'd been wanting to go, but she wasn't playing anywhere near us, and I couldn't find a girlfriend who was willing to travel. He sucked it up, booked us a hotel, and we made a weekend out of it.

jen said...

My favorite birthday gift was this past year I got my new puppy Chewie! We have a 6 year old pekingese and when we moved into our house we noticed she was lonely when we were at work so my wonderful fubby(future hubby)bought me Chewie and he has keeping us all busy! He lives up to his name that's for sure.

On my 22nd birthday, I was packing up to move across the country, so my family surprised me with a homemade scrapbook entitled "Letters from Home" They had gone around to many of my friends and had about 100 people write encouraging letters for me to read if I ever was lonely. That was my favorite birthday gift...What was yours?
