If you had £100 to spend on yourself, what would you buy?

I have some birthday money and if I don't spend it soon it will end up being used for food shopping/on the DC etc.

It doesn't have to be a style and beauty thing, and it doesn't have to be all on one thing.

I'm 33 and pregnant and love beauty products, reading, watching films, jewellery etc. Don't want to buy clothes until after baby arrives.

Any ideas?

Oh and a subscription to audible.co.uk ( actually DH doesx this for my birthday each year) love being able to listen to a book when driving sewing or baking (breast feeding ?)

A massive big rug ive seen to cover my horrid cold laminate floor.

Great idea, but I have a Kindle and have just bought a Fire HD for DH!

Cut and colour

All great suggestions - don't really want a rug or electric blanket grin - have got an electric toothbrush and just had my cut and colour done.......

Ideally I'd love to have a spa day or something, but being pg there is very little you can do/have done. Last time I went for a mother to be treatment I nearly slapped the therapist as the pressure she used was so light!

swarovski things - they are gorge!

go on amazon and drool.......the jewellery is to die for. YOu will be able to get a pair of really nice earrings and matching necklace for around £100.

Have you seen fingerprint jewellry? I'd love a necklace with my 3 dcs prints on (£95) but no good to you unless you're due soon!

MrsBradleyCooper Thu 29-Nov-12 18:20:02

Actually that bag has given me an idea as I love the lily and Lionel scarves so might get one of them smile

How pg are you OP?

Some spas have sensible policies - I spent a day at one in Bristol when 37 weeks. Could use everything.

Last time I had 100 pound gift vouchers I bought one of these http://www.swarovski.com/Web_CA/en/1791305/product/Tennis_Bracelet.html from asos. With the next 100, I bought GHD hair straighteners . They are both fantastic pick-me-ups.

Treat yourself to a lovely expensive changing bag as it will be your handbag for the next year+ !!!!!

Something lovely from http://www.astleyclarke.com/

Personally in your position, I buy a gift card for my favourite clothes shop. That way I'd be able to use the money on a present for myself without being tempted to spend it on bread, and I'd know I'd be able to treat myself to some nice after-pregnancy wear.
