What will you prefer to receive? I rather choose the balloon, something different at my age hahaha! For sure I'll feel childish but feeling young once in a while is great. I could even keep it as a part of good memories. How about you guys, what would you prefer and why? Anyway have a nice day to all of you!

Well my birthday is in 19 days and I have asked my husband to only get me a ice cream cake..I love ice cream cake but haven't had one in many years. At my age I would rather not spend money for my birthday, my kids have theirs only a few weeks later so I would rather we save that money for their parties and gifts. Now this year he has decided that maybe getting my hair cut again can be a gift...actually I told him that could be considered my gift so I know he won't sneak out and try getting me something. I think if I had only those 3 choices though I would have to go with the chocolate. I think the balloons are just not something I would like and roses although a great gift, I always say roses/flowers are nice but I would rather not get them because I am terrible at keeping any sort of flower or plant alive for long so they usually die off within a day or two and I just feel it was a waste of money.

Hi N30wing, chocolates anytime. I don't know what to do with a balloon, and roses are a waste of money. And chocolates are one of my favorite snacks!

Hi my friend mods, it's the same thing with me but I chosen a balloon. But this time I want it big and color blue. It just reminds me of the past that I'll hold a balloon and let it fly then I'll cry. My parents will buy me another balloon again hahaha! How days so past by so fast. Miss those day my friend. Anyway have a wonderful day to you my friend!

I'd definitely go for chocolates... Since you didn't mention what kind of chocolates, I'd love to have a chocolate ice cream cake from baskin and robbins. Yummy! I swear that's the best ice cream cake that I've ever tasted. So there. I'd go for chocolates. Definitely chocolates.

I would prefer the chocolates. Especially if they are dark chocolates with fruit and nuts or mint! I prefer dark chocolates over milk chocolates because it is the healthier choice. Some health benefits of dark chocolates includes lowering of blood pressure and it is also a potent anti-oxidant. So for me the beneficial choice would be chocolates--dark chocolates. I will just keep the wrapper for the memories part. Hahaha... Have a nice day!

Couldn't I have all three haha. If I had to choose, I think I would want roses. I hardly ever got roses. The only time one of my exes got me roses was when he was in trouble. The one ex who I still love, picked me while flowers on his way to see me and it was so romantic, but I think I would like roses for my birthday. I know it's kind of cliche but I would feel really loved.

I think for women they usually like roses on their Birthdays. But I prefer a balloon for me it's really something different. But I like my balloon this time big, not the small ones anymore. I remember when I was still young, I love playing my ballons and let it fly and then I will cry and ask my Mom for another one. Anyway have a nice day to you!

I choose chocolate because it is not gender realted gift. I also love to eat chocolates too as this is one of my favorite food. Since I am a man then balloon and roses are out of the question.

When I receive a gift for my birthday I would choose chocolates. Its kinda good having something to eat on your birthday especially now we are suffering from financial crisis, and receiving a chocolate would be the most promising gift I would ever had. Besides the price of chocolates is high you can have a free food on your birthday, funny right? but its cool, free food. A rose would be ok, but it may wilt in a few days and you are left with a wilted flower whish you can throw away afterwards. A balloon would be nice too, reminiscing the childhood days but balloons tends to decrewase in size after a week or so till it pops off, again throw it to the garbage can. Not like chocolates you can have a free food on your birthday, spare some for the next day and you can have a free snack again. Thats nice don't you think. Happy Mylotting.
