Amazon to the antipodes

Well-meant $400 Amazon voucher expires soon. Shipping is prohibitive to Australia. What small but expensive item/s can I buy to make this worthwhile? (I don't need or want a kindle or more books, already own a Leatherman, electrical appliances are out because of voltage issues).

Small but good

I have fifty dollars to spend on Amazon, and I'm looking for ideas beyond books, ebooks, music, or movies. If you had had to pick 3-5 $10 to $15 dollar items that would make your life slightly better in some way, what would you pick?

Amazon Backorder Dilemma

Amazon pumped, primed, and ready to shop!

searching for the Best Stuff on Amazon

I enjoy finer things, and like to laugh at crappy stuff. Is there any way to search amazon to bring up the best or worst products (in a category or overall)? A list of "all 5-star products" would be too crude, so I'm thinking, search for the combination of higest rating with most reviews, or lowest rating with most reviews.
