Happy birthday! by Wikibudgie, on Flickr

What do you get the bird mad lady who had a birthday? Well how about an Australian 50cent coin (legal tender) with a budgie on it! But wait - there's more! That's right, a parrot-themed umbrella. Woo hoo.

Wiki is not impressed, he thinks he should have that shiny shiny thing for himself.

Tell me the best budgie or bird related gift you've received (including giving it to yourself.. not including a bird, bird toy or cage)

Happy birthday, AnnMarie! :birthday:
I can't say I ever gotten bird related presents, besides the birds themselves.
I did buy myself a book on lovebirds a couple of years ago, "The lovebird handbook" by Vera Appleyard. I don't know if that counts or not! ;)

Happy belated birthday AnnMarie. I haven't gotten any bird related gifts yet. I did get an awesome photo book of dogs and their owners through the ages for a birthday once. Who knows, maybe this Christmas that will change :)

Thank you for the birthday wishes Lynn and Indi - and the cake, complete with lolly snakes! Awesome! The thing in the box is this: http://www.perthmint.com.au/catalog...udgerigar-2013-half-oz-silver-proof-coin.aspx

It was a gift from my dear friend and Tai Chi teacher, very special!

There's an incredible array of budgie related things out there..
Perhaps you might like.. a set of coasters to go with your mug!

Thank you, Aluz! It certainly counts. I've so far bought myself a t-shirt off ebay which has a budgie on it.. And some parrot earrings, a necklace with a birdcage on it, oh, and the budgie nanoblocks kit.. Perhaps you might like...
An embroidered vest with a budgie on it!

Happy Birthday, AnnMarie!

I only ever got one budgie themed gift, and that was 2 teabag holders with budgies on them. They are really cute and one of the budgies on it looks just like my Pickles. It is hard to find things with budgies on them!

Here is a link to some simillar products(the teabag holder isn't there but there is the same design on a cup and coaster):

Thanks Dee!
Perhaps you would like some earrings with jars of bird seed?


Happy Birthday AnnMarie!

Thank you! In that case, here's where you can get yourself a parrot brolly of your very own. They're quite decent - Shelta make a good umbrella.

Happy Birthday AnnMarie....:)
Thanks, Jonah! I'd offer you a gift suggestion - but I'm pretty sure you'd only want a gift voucher for a budgie :)

Oh yes - that's to go with the coasters I suggested for Lyn (I have the same cup.. It's adorable).

For you? Budgie earrings!

Happy birthday AnnMarie :D.

Thanks Rick! So.. You won't be interested in my gift suggestion of.. This more region-appropriate coin?

When Pitchii passed away in February I got a cell phone accessory (key chain?) with Pitchii's likeness and name carved into it (I wondered why she was wanting photos of Pitchii..) I also got a hand crafted (um, English is slipping... not knitted, not crocheted but a soft fluffy substance??) budgie made to look like Pitchii. Obviously very treasured gifts! Also budgie stickers and book marks.... :) :)
You gifts are lovely, the coin is very special!!
