Family secret santa, budget £30, what do I ask for that's genuinely useful?

Subject says it all really. As family, we don't spend fortune on presents (nah kids, obviously different scenario), food a different matter. So, extended family have a secret santa budget of 30 quid. I have a digi and vinyl setup (having just spent £365 on a digi ref rca). I don't write this to show off, but to highlight that many of us use a lot of our limited resources on things the average person would never consider.

So, with this in mind, what, as a hifi/music nut, could i request that I'd actually use, enjoy, or from which I'd get some benefit? This is not to appear ungrateful, I simply hate people spending money for sake, because of time of year.

I actually find it harder to come up with present suggestions myself now as I used to come up with a list of CDs but now I just stream everything from Qobuz there isn't really any point.

Record was first thought, but do I want to explain the discog purchasing process, the difference between vg, nm, mint etc.

If you have a vinyl setup it has to be something like a Vinyl Passion Dust Buster or maybe a Milty Zero Stat. I would not have been without them when I played vinyl.

Any brand new options would be easier?

Nagaoka anti static sleeves, a must for any vinyl addict!

Nagaoka Discfile 102 Anti Static 12 Vinyl Inner Record Sleeves (pack of 50) at Juno Records.

Edit:

These do what they say on the tin :) , I have tried cheaper alternatives, but they are not as effective.

Not if you like your family members.

Ask for a record token and like it. Mr Fussy. 🙂
