I got a 100$ bonus lekavod Yom tov. Pretty big deal for me. I don’t want it to go for grape juice, fish or meat. What should I treat myself with? I don’t have time to do clothing shopping. Best if I can order something. Ideas welcome.

Thank you all.
Anything that needs me to physically go anywhere to shop or get a service done I can’t do anymore so many ideas are automatically nixed.
I don’t want this treat to go for food or cleaning help. I’d rather an item. I’ll look into the options that are left. Uggs slippers might be interesting. Any other ideas appreciated.

Any links?
I saw some on amazon with mixed reviews. Some questioning the authenticity.
I like the idea for my tired feet!

You can order directly from uggs or a department store.

I got mine from nordstrom (free shipping). I have the Tasman because I wanted one that could pass for running quick errands out of the house. I also have (great gift from Dh a few years ago for making pesach!) a pink open toe criss cross pair. Anything from a department store or Ugg itself will be authentic.

Not Uggs, not as soft, but they definitely do the trick for me, at a lower price point.

Decided on the Tasman uggs. If I’m a half size do I size up or down?

Buy yourself an Israel bond. Until it matures you’ll have time to contemplate what you would like and maybe even be able to go shopping for it in person when the bond matures. And depending on the type of bond, you may get interest paid every May and November, so you can buy yourself multiple little interim gifts with the interest.

Would help if you were a bit less coy and revealed how much of a bonus. $2000? $30,000? $200,000? I think most people are thinking a few hundred, tops.

Wow who gets a 200K bonus? Hook me up!! Op said she got $100 no extra zeros. Are there bonds at that price point and how much do they usually pay?

Oops, sorry I misread . A hundred dollars is written $100 not 100$. I read it as 100%—some businesses give employees bonuses that can be as much or more than the base salary, so a 100% bonus is a real possibility. (Not at my job, alas.)

You could still buy a $100 Mazal Tov bond, but that type of bond pays interest at maturity, not before.

Anyway, mazal tov bond or not, mazal tov on the bonus!
