I got an unexpected work bonus of around $1,200 (after taxes) and want to treat myself to something I wouldn't normally buy. What would you get?

Before I get the advice to save it I want to point out..
I have substantial retirement savings
More than 6 months emergency money
An investment property
Currently also live in my own tri-plex with the other two units covering about 60% of my mortgage.

We always talk about saving saving saving...lets talk about blowing it on something fun and exciting Applause

A buffer tank for the desuperheater [geojerry.com] in my geothermal system to help maintain a more consistent domestic hot water temperature.

New snow tires for your car?
I recently received an $1100 windfall and paid for my next 6 months of car insurance!

I like people like OP he is responsible, but also wants to enjoy some $$$. I would definitely have some top of my head:

Upgrade your car tires/tune
Buy a new phone
New computer/tablet/TV etc
Go out of town and just enjoy a relaxing long weekend (eat and just relax)
Do a little upgrade in the house you need

This are some on top of my head OP. I am glad you live under moderation you have enoughs savings, and also enjoying yourself.

Just wanted to add my old employer being so wealthy and so stingy doesnt enjoy anything if he got a bonus he put it straight for investment sad how some people can moderate their expenses.

How long's it been since you replaced your mattress? There's something people don't normally think of blowing a bonus on, but that you'll really appreciate for 8 hours a day, every day.

I would blow it on a nice long weekend trip. Years ago I received a large unexpected bonuses and took family to London (budget trip). First across the pond experience for us Very memorable for our kids. Hard to make it there for $ 1200 but anywhere you haven't been before is worth it.
