    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")
