If you like music, try getting an iTunes gift card(if you have iTunes).

Heck, get more than one. I'm just suggesting.

If you're into music... I dunno, pick an instrument to learn and use the money to buy/rent it? Take lessons?

Alternatively, if you really can't think of anything just save the money up. That way you aren't buying something you don't really want. Then in the future, if there is something you want, you have money set aside for it. And worst case? You're saving up for university in a few years. :]

LimeWire I see.


To be honest I don't think you should get anything. Knowing when to use one's assets is something well-advised.

Get a Macbook. That's what I got for my last birthday<3.
:]



Since you're into music maybe a iPod if you don't already have one. The new itouch is $229.
Nevermind, didn't read good enough. You already have an ipod. Well if you want to new one there you go. ha.
Maybe nice speakers for your computer. With some bass. Play some loud music.

A Mac book for $231? SHOW ME WHERE NAO PLZ!

....sorry, I couldn't resist.
xP

Anyway, if you can't make up your mind now, just hold on to the money for a while. You may find something that you want in the next few months.

Just get something that you'll actually spend your time enjoying, something that you have passion for or something like that.

'Tis what I'd do, anyway.

I'd go with what most people say, PANCAKES save it up. Believe me you'
ll thank yourself for that later in life for when you want to go to a good University or College. Tis' what I am doing! Although I still have 20 bucks from my bday in August, I just can't find the CD I want. Futureshop sucks. =/

You are 14 and you still have 231$!? Weird, I got a PSP after begging and getting A+ in final examination. I so badly want a DS, You give one Xbox 360 to me. :D. Just kidding!.... but do you think it'll work.

ANYWAY, You should buy the new iPhone 3G. Or buy a guitar and a mike. how 'bout you give me the PS2, just kidding.....do you think it'll work. Naah. I want it anyway. You already have an iPod, piano, trumpet for music, what else would you want. Get a new iPod maybe.

If you are into music. try buying a musical instrument. I would recommend an acoustic guitar because they are simple to learn. But it's your birthday not ours, so buy what you wish.

No offence, but youre making yourself sound really spoiled.

Buy an educational book and donate the rest of the money to a better cause (e.g charity for lil starving kids in Africa) - there's no point in wasting it.

well first i am not going to donate it to charity because we give away our unused clothing/toys to our local charity,and i think i might donate about 50$ for the animal shelter.

Maybe... Buy an iPod Touch? Those are really fun. X3 They're handy to. Or an iPhone. Something from the Apple company. XD Nah. Just kidding. Do what you want with it. I'm saving up all my birthday money for a Laptop. : 3

If you're not sure, buy nothing.

That's the one and only advice I can give you...

Give it to me so I can purchase a nice flat pannel tv when i get back to school... haha.

If you're getting into music, then that is a lot of money you can spend to find bands you like and music that defines who you are. I you really like music, I'd suggest spending some of that on a new record player and then go out and buy some classic albums and listen to it on Vinyl. Or if you want to get into newer music, buy and HD radio with itunes tagging and then discover new music that you like and then use the rest of your money to buy it off of iTunes. I know locally, I'd like to listen to an HD station that plays local music, which is even better than the regular station it's affiliated with.

But also, like Lightning said, saving it is alwas good. Although spending it on a musical instrument is also a valid idea.... seriosuly though, I could totally use the money, I'm not going to be able to survive without a tv down there... ;p

the bitter end.

How about you don't get anything? If you already have everything you want then there's no reason to force something upon yourself.

Do a ton of research and buy a ton of CDs perhaps. Then get some nice equipment and boom, music fan.
