Default Help with "rewards"?

I've been trying to think of some rewards to help keep me motivated while losing weight. So far, I've got:

10lbs - new Kongs (desperately needed, being ordered hopefully next weekend!)
15lbs - new 50ft leads
20lbs - a new bra or two... boobs grew again. At a 36DDD now.

I need some ideas for 25, 30, 35, and 40. No real price range, I'm just having a hard time because usually I'm weird about spending money. I don't use fancy collars or leashes, really, so "a Paco collar!" or "BLD leash!" doesn't really apply :P

Help please!

I am having a hard time comming up with stuff too. My next goal is a fancy new travel tea mug and after that it's a 'shopping spree' at my favorite tea store.

Anything you would like to have but probably wouldn't usually buy? Couldn't justify indulging in or something like that? Fancy bubble bath or some new makeup? A new outfit? Some awesome but over priced doggie toys?

- A date somewhere solo! I bought a gift card to a local bookshop/movie theater and I am going to take myself on a date!!

- A photo-shoot with your doggies. This is my goal weight reward.

- New perfume (go to Macys or something and have fun picking your next 'signature" scent)

- new fancy water bottle. This was one of my small prizes but so fun! I love my new camelbak

- New running shoes/sports bra

- Personalized phone cover. I want an iphone case with Merlin's picture so bad! They make custom otterboxes

- Fun lessons! What have you always wanted to learn? Piano? martial arts? painting? Splurge on some lessons!

- A trip somewhere. I am going to the wizarding world of harry potter!

- Pandora bracelet/charm

Just some ideas

I'm doing the Couch-to-5k right now, and have been rewarding myself all along

1 - each day I complete a run I get a new song from iTunes (I had a ton of gift cards from Christmas, so that doesn't actually cost me anything)

2 - each week I complete I get a new book on my Nook

3 - the half-way point, which was last weekend, I got myself a new jacket.

4 - at the end, I'm getting myself a whole new running/agility outfit.

New camera gear! Just small things, such as

- a wireless remote ($14 - $20)
- a reflector (also around $18 - $20)
- flash diffuser or a bendable bounce card (ranging from $5 - $20)
- cleaning kit (about $20 - $30 depending)

For dog stuff, I've recently been looking into

- a new harness, because we don't have one yet
- fabric collars (which you can definitely get for $20 - $30)
- tags (just cute little home made ones, no need for a Fetching Tag here)
- new toys
- grooming supplies if you don't already have them
- love Fran's personalized phone cover idea, I've been looking into phone covers as well. A picture of one of your dogs (or a group picture) would be cool
- printed and framed picture of your dogs for your wall/desk. Maybe a larger sized/higher quality print or a nicer frame?

Others things for me include

- new clothes. I am going crazy with dress shopping, because I will still be able to wear them when I am at my goal weight and down 2 sizes.
- new shoes
- new tights and leggings, which are nice because you can also still wear them after some weight loss
- earrings and rings. I love rings and can never have enough
- hair products and/or make up
- new book! I am thinking of getting A Dog's Purpose or buying an old favorite, The Art of Racing in the Rain (both dog books). Might grab some photography books as well because I've never had or read any.

One of my bigger milestones may be a new ear piercing. I am thinking of getting either my frontal helix or my tragus pierced.
