  1. Lovely giveaway Kalyani! I love the satchel and would love to win it!

    I am following you on GFC and Bloglovin.

    My favourite birthday present has been a pair of love birds that my husband gave me last year – one yellow and the other blue. I named them Honey and Bunny :) .. Since I believe that birds should be free, we released them a week later. I hope and pray that they are free, safe and happy. :) In that one week, they made me so happy and it was a bittersweet moment when I let them go!

    In case you want to see their photos, they are there on my Belated Happy Birthday post!

  2. I love the satchel, classic!!
    when it your bday, Its usually you who has to think of the venue, the guest list etc. The kind of bdays I had wen i was young, were perfect. no expensive gifts, just a fuss free day. perfectly planned by family for me. Even today i would just wanna get up,go to the spa,watch a movie, have loads to eat. lie down on the beach maybe, hahhah. nothing too big but a day when I dont have to do thinking, people do it for me and i sit back. In other words, it could be a surprise vacation probably. it will be such a wonderful bday:D

  3. Happy bday!
    loooove the satchel!
    my fav bday present was a bunch of roses my grandad picked from his garden, I was 11 so nobody had ever gifted me flowers… i totally felt like a princess! I kept the petals in a wood box and i still have them! good old memories…

  4. Wow, that is a lot of birthdays to celebrate!! And here’s wishing you a super duper one too!! This is an awesome giveaway – and thanks for making it international ;-) . I think I loved my childhood birthday presents – I nearly always got books!! Since growing up, I’ve gravitated more towards fashion related stuff, though I think I’m now open to baking equipment as well :-D .

    The birthday right after G’s and my engagement, where he rang me up two days before and told me he wouldn’t be able to make it owing to some work at office. I was mad at him for missing my birthday that too one after engagement. I decided not to celebrate my bday and slept over until 10am on the bday. At 11 when I finally decided to get up and watch some TV there he was…on screen (he switched the cable for pre-recorded dvd), telling me how much he loved me…while I could recover from the shock the guy appeared from nowhere, got down on his knees and proposed AGAIN!!!. HE (Mr.G) WAS THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT I HAVE EVER GOT :)

  9. On my 22nd birthday, my friends got me 22 gifts..you know things I could use daily..a bag, slippers, a book, diary. It was so thoughtful! That was my favourite gift!

    Thank you for all the lovely comments on my blog Kalyani!

  12. First of all, Many happy returns of the day..
    For me my Birthday is the most important and special day of the year. And My parents have always gifted me with the loveliest of gifts but one when I was in 4th Std will always be special. They gifted me with a bicycle (BSA Champ, in red colour). Most of my friends were boys and they had bicylce or their elder brother/sister had. Though I never told my parents I want one, but they used to see me riding bicycles of my friends. So they decided to gift me one and on 23rd June 1995, I got my bicycle and from next day onwards I would roam around in my bicycle like a free bird, telling everyone.. Catch me if you can..

  13. A very happy b’day Kalyani. That is such a lovely satchel and the colorful bangles are pretty too.

    I don’t like soft toys ( I guess I am the only girl who doesn’t :P ) but my favorite b’day present is a soft toy. 3 yrs ago on a day just before my b’day my school friends whom I hadn’t met for long turned up to surprise me. I was really surprised and after the cake cutting etc they gave me my b’day presents. Some choclates, cards, etc and a yellow duck soft toy. I was surprised why they bought me a soft toy. And when They gave it to me it made a QUACK-QUACK noise. They later told me that it will keep reminding me of them as we don’t meet very often. The duck still quacks when I touch it..even after 3 long years :D
