Birthday Tips - To Give & Receive

There is a lot of controversy over gift-giving, so as the current birthday post writer, I want to make it a bit easier for everyone - these are a few tips on how to make the best of the day, whether it's yours or someone else's.

First - Don't expect the world. Wishlist a variety of items with different pricepoints so that there's a greater chance someone will be willing to spend - or able to afford - what you are after. This is also good if you enter the comps on the blog, because it's much better if three people can get 10sd gifts, than for one person to get a 30sd gift. That's not to say you CAN'T add that awesome interior, just to include other things as well. And definitely don't forget to update it when you buy or receive something! Though at worst, you can always use the extras for room styles.

And don't forget, not everyone can afford to spend money on their own dolls, let alone someone elses' - even if you only get a message, that person still took time out of their day to write it, it doesn't mean they love you any less! And don't feel bad if you can't afford to buy something for some else, either.

Second - Share the love! If someone needs help, whether it's finding Thanksgiving Turkey(s,) with wishlist items, or general questions, make sure to give them a hand! What comes around, goes around, and what better a day to show appreciation for that assistance in return than on a birthday.

Third - Timing isn't everything. If you're a little late, or a little early, don't sweat it - say happy birthday anyway! Timezones are weird things, so at worst, they'll have a three-day long celebration.

See what I mean below - when it's 5pm Monday for me, it's 7pm Sunday in Alaska!

Fourth - It's all about appreciation. No one is required to give gifts, or wish you happy birthday, or write up a blog post. We all do it because you contribute, as members or writers, to this community, and we want to show that we appreciate you for that effort. We want to - not have to. Whether you receive one message or one hundred, it's because those people care about you, and want to show it in some way. Try give and up-vote, reply, or comment in return to show you've seen it! And try remember to return the favour when it's their turn, even if you can't splurge as much, anything is something.

Hopefully this helps everyone have a happier day!
