A good pork pie and some cheddar. Some cufflinks from an op-shop. Some really lovely boot polish, and giving yourself a half hour to give your boots a real working over. An old, old book - not going to be anything rare or collectable at that price, but just holding something that old, smelling it, slipping the paper between your fingers… Some vinyl, and giving yourself time to listen to it. Lemonade or a car wash from a kids stand. A sample of some really expensive cologne or a nice moisturiser, just to wear for a day. A magazine you usually wouldn’t buy because it’s too expensive. Really good marzipan. An Opinel folding knife - you might need to save two or three luxuries for this one, although you can get the paring knife for under a tenner, and suddenly oranges are a delight. A really nice pencil - the sound and smell of sharpening is worth it even if you never write with it (but why not pick up a nice piece of paper and an envelope and write a love note to your neglected other half?) A piece of an exotic fruit you’ve never eaten - sapote, rambutan, durian, custard apple, lychees, guava, passionfruit, dragon fruit, star fruit. A tin of really expensive mints. A tin of rich, raisiny-chocolatey pipe tobacco, just to smell, to use as pot pourri, and run your fingers over the embossed metal. An old letter opener from an op shop. That telephone bill is suddenly a welcome opportunity to slice and flourish! A 10mm LED, a C2032 battery, some tape, and a delighted child who now has a real firefly. A Star Wars action figure. A piece of wood and some sandpaper. A stick of French butter. A jar to put on your desk, so that every time you feel like a little luxury, you slip a tenner inside, and at Christmas you give it all to the Smith Family. Two issues of The Big Issue, one for you, one for a friend. A pumice stone for your feet. A toast rack. A random book for your Kindle. A glass vessel in which to construct a terrarium. A magnifying glass. An old pocket watch that doesn’t work, and a commitment that one day you’ll get it fixed. A Christmas ornament. Giving ten dollars to the first person who asks you for change, along with the last luxury you bought for ten dollars, because most people don’t have either to spare. Getting a knife sharpened. A ball of good twine. Slut red nail polish for a lady friend. A really nice hanky. Something from Oxfam (like a chicken, or a mosquito net). Some random seeds to plant and see what happens. A block of beeswax. The oldest coin you can buy for $10, which is now your lucky coin, and the numbers in the year will prove especially auspicious for horse racing, and be the birth date, shoe size or phone number of your one true love.
