A New Star Atlas
If you haven't already seen this over at Stuart's Cumbrian Sky, then check out this Star Atlas from Astronomy magazine available in newsagents for Â£5.
Stuart's review gives you all the details. I bought a copy yesterday as well, and can confirm it is worth a fiver. Couple that with a pair of Â£15 binoculars (next time they are available from Lidl) and you've got yourself a complete beginners astronomy kit for Â£20. Not bad.
