when you get gift $$ for your bday or whatever occasion, do you use it to buy something you wanted? or do you end up just mixing it in with your other money and pay bills and stuff?

similarly, when you get a gc for amaz0n or something, do you use it for something special? or do you end up using it for regular household purchases?

Does anyone over 21 get cash for their birthday?

My grandmother left the cash in the card and kept it as a keepsake.  We found over $3000 in her house like that when she died.

i get checks from the maternal parental unit still. i don't think she knows what to get me otherwise   

I spent my $100 Amazon birthday GC on furnace filters, and as an extra birthday treat I got to install them myself

I try to use gift cards for something I want and it's a plus because I can write about it in the thank you note to the gifter.

here are my answers to op's questions

buy something i wanted
buy something special

i dunno how/when it happened, but i make sure i use it for something i would want as a gift. and yes, sometimes i let them know what they got me
