Hi new to the forums, and my first question.

I usually get a $100-$200 gift for my birthday, and I was looking for something that will end up benefiting me in the long run monetarily. For instance, for Christmas I got a cordless razor that I asked for because I was forever spending money on razors and shaving cream. Now my birthday is coming up and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what a good gift to ask for would be?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think there is anything wrong with rewarding yourself with a nice gift every once in awhile. Using your birthday gifts as a type of financial move will barely make a difference in the long run.

But.... if you still want something financially conscious, you can simply ask for anything you are already planning on buying. This would basically make your future purchase free.... Example: You probably would have wanted to buy an electric razor, but instead you asked for it as a birthday gift.

So anything you are planning to buy is a good idea for a birthday request (If you are trying to use your gift as a way to save money).
