Tax day has come and gone, and if you were lucky this year, all that stress from scurrying to finish last-minute filing hopefully paid off in the form of a nice, big refund check from the IRS.

If you have a refund check coming your way and are contemplating on spending it on a nice gift for yourself, invest in something that helps keep a little extra change in your wallet over the long run.

1. Home Soda Machine: This is one of the coolest new gadgets out there. If you have a sweet tooth for carbonated soda, but are sick of buying cans or bottles of Coke, invest in a home soda machine that makes a bubbly drink right in your kitchen.

Prices range from $80-180 for a nice machine, but it will end up saving you 36 cans of soda every week (for a family of 4, that works out to around $15/week). You’ll start noticing the savings in 5-9 months after your purchase, plus add in the convenience factor and this is one smart buy.
