    What to spend £20 on?

    It was my birthday yesterday and in one card I had a very nice pressie fo a crisp £20 note. Now, like most here who receive money this way it rarely get spent on anything tangible however, this year I'm going to make an effort. So, if you had £20, what would you spend it on (that is not, food, fuel, drink or groceries!)? You can be a few pound over btw
    With the cmaping nad festival season almost upon us I have seen this (as I need a new bag anyway): Gelert Sleeping Pod XL - SportsDirect.com

    If it was my £20, I'd probably buy an Arduino Uno or a Raspberry Pi

    I got £20 vouchers in a card in Nov and bought a laundry basket that has seperate compartments for lights and darks. I considered it a valid purchase :-)

    Sometimes paper ones that I find in second hand books shops and sometimes Kindle ones
    EDIT
    I have a small collection of very old books that have taken my fancy. Victorian travel guides to places I know well are fascinating. I also have a Victorian bird book: If you can't identify a bird, you are advised to shoot it and take it to a museum for identification

    It has to be something you wouldn't normally buy - something as a treat just for you that you will really appreciate.
    Any accessories for a hobby? Camera bits?
    Something for that nice car (has to be somethng frivolous or "extra")
