The best birthday gift that I have ever received was a two way plane ticket to the Philippines. It received it in time with my 24th birthday. It was given to me by the company and so I was able to celebrate my birthday with my whole family. That was the most memorable birthday that I have ever had in my whole life. No material thing is enough to compensate the joy of being with your love ones on your very special day. You, what was the greatest birthday present that you have received?

My greatest birthday present? It has been a long time since I got a birthday present. Let me see... I don't remember. I know I have gotten presents in the past, when I was young. I don't remember what. New underwear and socks, new nightie. No, I don't remember anything being a great present in particular.

Hey Margajoe! No worries. Who knows? Maybe your next birthday you will receive something so special. Anyways, the fact that you're still alive and kicking right up to this moment is an awesome gift. Isn't it?

So true, I am not complaining. Just the question got me thinking. This year, the 12th of May. Maybe, you never know. The last few years I told my boyfriend not to buy me anything, seeing as we are so low on money. So, it is my own fault. hahaha! But, like you say, I am still alive. Don't know about the kicking part.

Hi rjvb! Yeah, I agree with you. Another life to enjoy and the love of the family are indeed the greatest gifts that you can receive on your birthday. No material thing can replace the joy of living with the people you love.

Hello shello! the best birthday gift i had received was a tiffany bracelet with a big heart dangler courtesy of my husband. It was the best i guess because i never thought that he will remember my birthday because he pretended that he never knew that it was my special day, unlike before that he's always an advance greeter of mine. Thanks a lot and be happy always!

I think the best birthday present I recd was on my 16th birthday from my mom. Till then, cosmetics and accessories were completely taboo for me…my mom wouldn’t approve of any make-up on teens and so I would just wistfully stare at the cosmetics stores and envy my friends in school whose moms were less strict. However, on my 16th birthday she gifted me a big hamper stuffed with the widest range of cosmetics and face-care products a girl could wish for. It was like a dream come true for me at that age. I still remember how I felt on top of the world using them for the first time…painting my nails, lipstick, lovely smelling creams and such LOL

Well, I know how you felt that day. The feeling is really overwhelming when you get something that you have longed to have. And getting it from someon whom you didn't expected as a surprise, then it's a total blast on your special day.

Hi vinster! That's great. It's good to hear that your wife is doing your chores on your birthday. That's truly romantic. You know, it's not easy for a woman to do a man's work and I salute her for that. Yeah, priorities change over the years specially when it comes with the family. Thanks for the post and welcome to myLot.

Oh..How wonderful? You're so blessed to have a successful marriage. I would always take stories of successful relationships as an encouragement to me and to all the young couples out there. Just keep it up and more years to go for you and your husband. Happy mylotting!

The best gift was probably my engagement ring. My partner asked me to marry him on my 19th birthday and of course I said yes. This was followed by a romantic dinner and a bunch of the most beautiful red roses you have ever seen.
