Nice little treats for my birthday?

It is my birthday soon. It happens to be the same day as DD so I often get overlooked.
DH used to get me fantastic presents but over the last couple of years he hasn't bothered and to be honest, the only thing I wanted was a bike which I will buy with money from family.
I would still like to get myself a few bits though, a little something to relax with in the evening. Other than wine and chocolate, what would you get yourself as a litte birthday treat?

A good book.

Ah I love a good book. I tend to read them in less than 24 hours though which frustrates me!

To treat myself I really like:

Clean bed (DH changes it for me)
Clean me (I prefer a shower to a bath)
Clean or new nightwear
Nice candle
Good book
Favourite music
Glass of wine
Time to enjoy it!

Longer term:

A facial, massage, eyebrows & nails done

Massage bar from Lush

Some lovely bath oil (aromatherapy associates, Neom, Jo Malone, Chanel no 5, would all be on my list)
Fragrant candle (again, Jo Malone, Neom, plus Skandinavisk or St Eval)
Hotel chocolat chocolates and/or hot chocolate
Beautiful glass for gin or wine
Magazine subscription for something to look forward to each month
Good hand cream L'occitane, Eve Lom or Clarins
Face cream or serum
Slippers with a shaped foot bed - my slippers have been much worn this year and some more supportive ones would be fab

A nice body wash, shower oil or bubble bath. Something really luxurious that you can use when you need a bit of a pick me up.

A scented candle (TK Maxx is your friend).

Books chocolate, wine if you drink a good quality bottle of perfume, sick pillowcase a good one not satin. Luxury toiletries.
