You have £100 and must spend it on yourself, what would you buy?

I already get my hair done every 6 weeks, I have plenty of clothes and jewellery, and enough electronic equipment.

Whatever would I spend it on?

In the good old days I would probably buy a Record Album or 2, film for my camera, a couple of good books a new pair of shoes…….

Over to you, you can’t put it towards household expenses or food.

I would treat myself to a pamper day at a very nice hotel not far from me. Facial, massage along with lunch and fizz.

I would like a new piece of tech, a "Gimbal" thanks.

I might buy a framed print I’ve had my eye on.

Gosh that's hard. I've thought and thought but I can't think of anything. I suppose it would be on a day out but I'd have to share that with DH. Sorry it's the best I can do.

Patsy70 Wed 01-Nov-23 17:35:09

Oh, yes, I’ll be there too. A pamper day including a facial and a massage, with lunch. 🍾🥂

I've long fancied a Nordace backpack, the kind that I could pack everything in for a whole weekend away.

Currently a new pair of really nice boots

SachaMac Wed 01-Nov-23 18:28:35

Probably luxury skin care products or a facial.

A family photo at a studio.

I still can’t think of anything either.

The way I feel today, I’d like to hire a maid to make me endless cups of hot tea and bring them up to me, in bed.

A handbag as always!

Granmarderby10 Wed 01-Nov-23 19:05:30

Ferry or Eurostar tickets.

I'd like to buy a Guernsey sweater but I think they may be more than £100 now. My DH bought me one years ago. It was so warm and lasted for ages.

MrsKen33 Wed 01-Nov-23 19:57:51

I’d buy a jumper from toast.

I’ve still got my navy guernsey, bought about 40yrs ago.
I did have a tan one, but when a couple came to buy our boat she loved that the name of the boat, Wayzegoose, was embroidered on my guernsey I gave it to her.

I was looking today at a tour of the Royal Mint, and a VIP tour costs £99, so that’s what I’d get.
