As for me, the best material gift I have ever received was Vikki, my very own laptop. I have been dreaming of getting my own laptop and although I received her a little over two months since my birthday, I am still very happy about it. They say the best things come to those who wait and I guess it is true! There is satisfaction and a feeling of gratification when my laptop finally arrived. My husband was of course very pleased to see my expression, which is the happy look of an excited child.
And I am not the only one who is happy to use Vikki! My little girl also enjoys using it too, especially if she wants to watch Hello Kitty Stump Village on You Tube or if she wants us to play Hello Kitty Online together.
As for the nonmaterial birthday gift, it will have to be the gift of family... Having a wonderful husband and a little daughter who makes me feel a myriad of emotions at once is more than enough to make life so very colorful and exciting. :)
