What can I buy from Argos for £4ish to win a bet?

I have £4 worth of Argos vouchers that run out on Friday.
Dh tried to throw them in the bin this morning, saying that I wouldn’t be able to get anything worth having with them without adding a lot on.
I need to win this bet as I lost the last one and haven’t lived it down.

I thought I’d cracked it when I found a pair of slippers but you have to pay online for TU clothes and the vouchers can’t be used online.
We have a 2 year old so stocking filers are a possibility. Please hit me with your best suggestions so that I can wipe the smug look off dh’s face. Grin

Has he put it in your car shocks? Y'know the pull down thingy under the dash? If I opened mine and saw that beady eyed creature staring at me,think I'd crash the carShock
Has your OH just taken out a massive insurance policy out on you?WinkGrin

somebody brought mine in from the kitchen Angry ...last time I saw the raven it was in the fruit bowl on the table, nesting on the baby squashes.

dh thinks the dog must have found it on the floor after the cat knocked it down, dh thinks that dog can do no wrong.

Ok so I have found her. The twit had put her on the top of the curtain rail in our bedroom with her beady little eyes staring at me in bed. With the darker mornings. I’ve not been opening the curtains. I did this morning and she fell down and landed in my cup of tea!

Plan toilet is go once I can get the picture printed. Grin

MsMighty it obviously wasn’t the dog. I mean look at that innocent little face.
I love my cat but she is an utter fucker and I wouldn’t put it past them to try to frame the dog.

My nearest ones are 40 miles away. A mile a penny seems a little steep. Why can't I order online and they just release mine with my postcode and he can fly to me?

The ravens are only 40p now. I hope someone has told Argos that Beth is a star (there must also be some sort of MN award for her?).
