    Default What do I want for my birthday?

    It's coming up in the next couple weeks and I'm stuck for ideas when people ask me what I want. I have most kitchen gadgets and appliances I want, and can possibly get. I have a pasta roller, coffee machine, stand mixer, juicer, slow cooker, pressure cooker, mincer/sausage maker, food processor etc. we have game consoles(although I'm not really into playing them as much), tablets etc


    People ask me what I want and honestly I have everything I want. Keeping to around $50, can be more and can be less, what do I want that I haven't thought of? Any ideas?

    What about something just for you, like a facial or massage voucher?

    You might get some ideas from this site.

    The best gift I've ever been given (other than my kitchen aid) was a voucher for flower delivery. They get delivered to my home every week/fortnight and are great quality. Obviously more than $50 but maybe a good idea for someone with a higher budget.

    I like the flowers suggestion. Money and voucher are good ideas because we are going away later in the year.

    Im not into beauty stuff at all really. A facial might be OK though.

    I could do with a stick blender. I dislike them but I do have a need for one occasionally I guess. My favorite pair of thongs broke today after starting this. They were a brand name pair I got in a little bundle last year for my birthday. Wax melts would be used as I got a burner for mothers day.

    Dp offered a tattoo but I have no idea what I would get. It would be for the girls and I have wanted another one but that's a lot of money to spend and I'm not that comfortable with it.

    I did suggest a bring a plate dinner to which I got told no to, it's not special enough. We are going out to a restaurant for dinner with mil.

    As long as someone does cake on my actual birthday I'm happy with a token gift from the girls and presence. But.. Others not so happy with that idea.

    Looks like I'm getting my new phone repaired for my birthday after the screen got broken instead. Yay
