I’ve never received any presents from friends on my birthday, I know it’s not a major issue but it kinda sucks cause it’s suppose to be your big day. My parents do ask if I want something or money but I say no because I feel bad and my siblings don’t get me anything either. Just wanted to know if this happens to anyone else Cus I feel kinda sad about it lol.

i dont get gifts from my friend on my birthday usually. but one girl had bought me something (but shes the type whod get gifts for any of her friends), but cos of covid i couldn't really get anything back. id thanked her but told her she doesnt have to before and after she'd bought it and said i dont celebrate birthdays. (a lot of people usually drop hints for me to buy them gifts tho). parents dont buy gifts or give money, sibling wouldn't give a sh*t about gifts. (and we honestly try getting each other to forget about it cos them knowing would equal birthday beats)

have you given your friends a birthday gift before? because I feel like it usually works both ways. I buy gifts for my friends and in return, I receive gifts from them

They do sometimes but not always as they don’t always have the money which I understand. So that’s probably the deal with ur friends I’m guessing. It’s normal to feel bad about this but personally I would have thought parents would have at least gave you something without having to ask? Unless maybe they’re struggling at the moment and perhaps you don’t know and that’s why they were unable to get anything.

I’m sorry tho:/

Yeah I do I spent a lot, but I’ve stopped since they stopped putting effort in
