What should I do with £1,000 savings I have with Santander?

Over the past five years I have bought gold coins and invested in a couple of funds.

You probably want investment advice but here's what I would do.

If you don't have any, buy some good quality tools. A general selection for doing jobs around the house and car will (IMHO) provide much more benfit than investing that amount of money. The idea being you'd save more having them than you could possibly gain from investing the same amount.

My 2p worth :)

If tools are not for an immediate task-at-hand, then they have to be stored. That makes them a liability if space is at a premium, or if you move house.

As much as I like tools, and I like tools a lot, that's quite a strange suggestion!

If you don't really " need" this grand, enjoy it!...

Pis it up a wall.

Go on holiday.

Buy something fun like a shot gun.

Buy a nice watch.

Get a pet.

Commission a work of art.

Lend it to someone who really needs it..

Get a top class hooker to screw your brains out.

Put it on a horse.

We're a long time dead!

Seconded. £150 will buy you an hours flying lesson. Have a go. If you hate it then don't do any more but at least you've flown an aircraft. If you love it, learn! Gliding is fun as well and alot cheaper.

Go to a mini arcade and exchange it for penny's / 2 ps

Take a few months sorting out the real copper coins ( non magnetic )

And you'll then have a copper hedge to give to the kids, grand kids, great grand kids

Or

Spend it on gym equipment / health.

Invest in your body and mind and reap all kinds of benefits

Premium bonds. I've got 1.5% return so far this year with small wins and you never know if the big one will come in.
