What would you spend a £500 gift on?

I got a £500 cheque in the post today from my lovely Grandparents as a wedding present.

Cant decide whether to

a) Pay some debt off with it (sensible but boring)
b) Put it towards new car (sensible but less boring)
c) Buy a new over (our current one burns at the back)
d) Buy something lovely

pay off debts... but that's me.

I would use it for something specific, otherwise it will just get frittered away. If you need a new oven buy one. It's practical but you need it and with £500 you should have something left over for a little something else.

a) - paying off debts will make life in general more fun as you'll have more money in the long run for fun!!

Don't ask me I would fritter it away. Or pay off my debts.

Buy a new oven or something lovely - so as you have something which you know your Grandparents gave you ... thinking about it, I'd spend some of it on something nice that I'd always have and know it was a wedding pres from my grandparents.

Whatever you decide ... enjoy!!

I would buy a new oven... and put what's left over towards the car (unless you spend it all on oven!)
