Mom asked me what I'd like for my birthday, so far all I can come up with are stamps. :) My parents are good about getting me what I can use, though, so I'm looking forward to what they think up.
And something hilariously funny ~ one of the companies I have stock in merged (or got acquired, depending on how you spin it), and there is a payoff per share (while still retaining the shares in the new company). I was vaguely annoyed that I had no idea when this payout was coming (either before year end or in January when the dividend comes) and if I would be reopening the books for 2015 to make an adjustment. And then I caught myself, being annoyed about money that I was receiving. :) kind of funny.
Eta: dividend and payout were issued the end of December, so this affects 2015.
Edited for incorrect wording, thank you Sam. :)
