Why don’t we make the blessing of shechehiyanu on one’s birthday because its once a year like all our holidays and we make the blessing then so why not now?

We only make shehechiyanu on what Chazal told us to do. But there is a sefer גנזי יוסף who actually said one should say the Bracha. Also Chavot Yair wrote to say it when one reaches the age of 70 but lemaase we don’t do it but if you want you can buy something new and say on it and have the birthday in mind
