random questions! (partly OT)

Hey all. I'm working on some ideas for gifting and I need help. And input. Badly. Do you have a minute to answer these two questions? I'd be forever grateful:

1) If you had 5$ that you were required to spend on yourself, what would you buy?

2) What if it were 10$?

Please help. I'm in a kind of weird situation and don't want to fall back on candy, unless it's one truffle of the absolute best chocolate ever. And even so, not everyone likes sweets. I would really appreciate every single answer.

I would buy tea or a shower melt or bath bomb!

Jen do you know of a quality brand and flavor? And do you think it should be bagged or loose-leaf?

Personally I like loose-leaf much better, but not sure if everyone has a tea ball. And buying tea and tea balls would put me over budget.

Yes! I agree loose leaf is best but you can't beat the bagged for convienence. Stash, tazo and twinnings are at target and Walmart, they come individually wrapped inside the carton. Each carton has 15 or 20 and they are under $5 per carton. I really like the decaf hazelnut-chocolate, it's like drinking Nutella! There are so many chai options too - I bought a spicy ginger chai At Safeway it's called ginger fire.
