I do. I always get new clothes for my birthday. When I was a kid, my parents bought me new clothes. Now that I'm a grown-up, I buy new clothes on my own in addition to the one that my parents gift me. How about you? Do you have the habit of buying new clothes for your birthday?

Actually no. But lately I try to arrange my trips abroad to coincide with my birthday. Haha! So in a way, I can celebrate there with my family. It's much more fun. Some hotels I stayed in even give me a free birthday cake!

For my birthdays I usually get money, because people never know what to buy me and it's far easier to get money so that I can spend it on what I want, and I've always used the money to buy myself new clothes, it's like a spending spree that I have on my birthday, being an adult birthdays are not as fun as when you are a child, however the fun part starts when you hit the shops and you can buy what you like and it's all for yourself instead of others!

i don't have this habit.i like go shopping from time to time,buying clothes is very frequent for me. so it is not a necessity for my birthday.i remembered when i was a kid,my parents would buy me new clothes.i wear new clothes that day, that means i will have a new beginning and grow more beautiful.now i live far from home,my parents don't buy clothes for me.but i really buy something to celebrate my birthday.

Dear friend, I do usually buy clothes during my brithdays and other festivals or specail days. I used to get clothes from parents during my every birthdays. In our place giving clothes during birthday is an usuall thing. Expect if someone close has been expired.

Well i love buying new cloths. But i don't really like to buy cloths during some special occasion. Its just my mood to buy new cloths so i buy or sometimes its the offer that forces me to buy the stuff. Well about gifting to parents or friends it really important to give them during special occasion that really makes them feel happy.. So its awesome to buy new cloths..
