I got a nice surprise today: HMRC told me they want to give me back some overpaid tax, which I should get next week. Most of it is going to be put to good use, but I'm thinking of splurging £100 on something tangible for me.
I'm a 40-something dodgy old rock chick, self-employed / freelance homeworker so don't need formal workwear and don't have occasions to buy outfits for.
Definitely a piece of jewellery. I've only ever bought myself cheapie bits from Topshop etc but earlier this year I treated myself to an aquamarine cocktail ring that I had been lusting after for years (regularly featured <<and ignored>> on my Christmas list hmm. I have worn it almost every day since and it gives me so much pleasure - probably more so because I bought it for myself.
WRT to finding something unusual/rock chick-esque, try Etsy. You're bound to find something unique and you may even be able to get something custom made (sellers state whether they offer custom designs in addition to their regular stock).
Silver jewellery definitely. I'm currently in an Alan Ardiff phase cos he has jewellery with moving parts which is so cool. But you could get a heck of a big piece from Newbridge Silver for that. Even two pieces!
