It's my birthday next month and my family are starting to ask what I would like. I literally have 6 ideas, ranging from less than £5 to £25ish. What normally happens is I will get 2-3 presents worth £20ish, and the other 3 worth up to £50 (including assortment not just one thing).

The problems are;
-I never get to look at stuff for me as I have DC's (bet you all know that!)
-I am trying to clear the house out so don't want something which will be sent to the charity shop in a month or two
-We move soon to a smaller house so my rule for the year has been, we can only buy it if it either replaces 2 items or; will save us space (or goes upwards as in on the wall!)

Don't want to be boring and ask for money but can't think what on earth I want.

Any ideas? It's such a wonderful problem to have (we don't have lots of money ourselves) that I don't want to waste it by asking for something for the sake of it!

Ask everyone to buy your vouchers for the same spa, then go and have a lovely blissful time there!

Could you ask your family members to club together and get you a kindle?
