    So it's my birthday in a month and people are asking for ideas for gifts.

    Typical case of i can't think of anything i want/need.

    Managed to scrape the following:
    I had a 10 stop 77mm filter for £20
    stepup/down ring set for £9
    Reflector £16

    Can't think of anything else i want/need... any suggestions for useful things less than £20?

    I'd love a 4 stop or 6 stop screw 77mm filter.. but can't find a decent one under £20.

    Vouchers for prints, calendars or photobooks? Always nice to have hardcopies.

    Photo paper. Film camera (can be had in that budget but ends up being a money pit). Spare battery. Shutter release cable.

    Depends whose asking. Rather than 3 or 4 cheapish gifts, if you got vouchers for a camera shop you could buy one item that you'll be really pleased with.

    I bought my brother a Helios 44 58mm f2 lens for less than £20 for his birthday. Vintage lenses can be good fun for very little money.

    If you're looking at cheap filters, take a look at Zomei, I've got their 10stop ND and found it to be pretty good.
    if you're interested in using flash, you can get light stands for £20.

    But as pointed out, you might be better off asking for vouchers so you can get something bigger.

    Lightweight travel/tabletop tripod - sometimes just the thing you need.
