Extra birthday money (what to splurge on?)

My mum and dad are both retired, so have saved quite a lot of money as normally they're always at the pub / theatre/ restaurant etc!!

As a result they've spent more on my siblings' lockdown birthdays and to keep things "fair" their idea not mine, they've given me £400 to spend.

I was going to buy a reconditioned iPad but am tempted by a new bag or jewellery. I was wondering if you had a spare £400 what would you spend it on?

An ipad is a good investment, I use mine every day and don't even need a tv in my bedroom anymore! Also useful for practical things like planning, writing notes etc. If it's something you've had your eye on/been thinking about anyway now is the time to get it smile

Not sure how much I'd use it. DH has one and I have an iPhone X which has a decent screen. What do you use it for rather than using your phone?

Will they be expecting to know what you got? Could you wait until you stumble across something that you actually want?
