I have seen many of the providers who sells LowEndBoxes and other hosting services giving away gifts on their birthday. Last one among them being BlueVM, and I am happy to get hold of one of their semi annual OpenVZ package. But, usually birthday gifts are given the other way. The birthday boy/girl usually gets the gift. During my childhood days, I used to get a lot of them and the biggest/costliest one being my PC, which I received 8 years ago(It still works great and run Debian 7 with XFCE, being used by my younger brothers). After that, I don't remember receiving any gifts on my Birthday.
I have seen my parents exchanging gifts on their birthdays, and even my brothers receive a lot and I too gift them usually tech gadgets. The other chance for receiving gift at this age is from your lover, which unfortunately I don't have. I don't know if this is the case with all who just passed their teenage. My last few birthdays ended up with just few wishes in FB and Twitter and a very few phone calls and messages. Also, since my birthday comes in the holiday season here, I didn't get much chance to celebrate it during the school/college days.
What about the birthday celebration of others over here? Share about the gifts you received and how much it meant for you.
Now, coming to the main point, I am turning 23 tomorrow(May 25th) and I am happy to receive any sort of gifts :). Being a community that discusses about Virtual Servers, you can gift me with VPS's or the providers can offer me an internship or what so ever.
Side Note: I personally know few who are against birthday gifts and celebrations as they feel like every birthday makes you closer to death. This post is not for them.
