New Lenses

With my new SLR camera that I got for Christmas, I got a 18-55mm lens. Now I'm dying to get a prime lens so with a low f/stop so I can take pictures with a narrower depth of field. A prime lens would give me a lot more control over what my pictures look like. My 18-55mm lens has a f/stop of 3.5-5.6. This isn't a small enough f/stop to achieve the types of images that I want to take, so I am looking for a lens such as a 50mm, probably a 1.8 since they are the most affordable. My biggest problem right now is that my birthday is coming up in a month so I don't want to just go buy a lens and have someone else who already bought it... So I'll probably just have to wait.
