    Yes, even in my early forties I get given odd amounts of cash in these cards that people send me and have amassed £90.

    Now I just need something nice to spend it on, but have run out of ideas.

    I could pay for my DSLR to be repaired.

    Or some clothes.

    Or a gadget that I will only use once.

    Any ideas? Oh, and no clean ones.

    Wow, I haven't had cash in a birthday card since I was 18, which was 20 years ago! Lucky you.

    Happy Birthday Mark. Will leave it to the guys to give you some suggestions. Should be an interesting thread when the ideas start rolling in.

    I have a nice coffee machine, great suggestion though, thanks.

    I tend not to use it that much, too spaced out to work it first thing so just do instant.

    Happy birthday mate.
    £90....?? A nice meal and bottle of wine for you and the missus. It'll be a nice evening and will give you at least two weeks of peaceful/nag-free living. Double win.

    Happy B'day

    Are you on Groupon, have a look on there, there are lots of different deals on there that would easily use up your £90, a nice meal, driving experience day, ride in a helicoptor, the list is endless :)

    Hope that helps.
