I had a similar "problem" when one of my relatives bought me a gift card to Sports Authority. I got:

Athletic tape
A backup stopwatch (i've broken too many mid-workout to not have backups)
"The Stick" for soft tissue work
An aluminum water bottle
Knee socks

You could also consider:
Reusable cold packs for injuries and inflammation
Small dumbbells or bands for shoulder pre/rehab
A hard medicine ball for rolling out. I prefer them to the foam rollers when it comes to my calves, glutes and chest
A jump Rope
Cones to mark distances
A backpack

uhmm. that's all i can think of now

My new favorite board / fight shorts. They have a split side for you quadzilla mofo's. Plus they have a drawstring waist with like a double / triple velcro closure.

LOL! Well, I found purple ones on sale for $12. So I bought the last two they had in small. I also tried on the long-sleeve ones but they don't work. I try to get them in the smallest size possible so they'll stay super snug and then just throw a t-shirt on over them, but when you start doing longsleeves they restrict range of motion.

Anyway, so I got the two purple Under Armour heat protection shirts, the pullup bar (unpadded for $15), and a stopwatch. I went to the store on Oracle so no chalk, unfortunately. Anyway, I spent about $6 over, which is okay with me. Good times!! I was looking at the mats too but I think I can do better than $25.

Then I went to the bookstore next door and found the Gleason's Gym Total Boxing Workout for Women on sale for six bucks! With a foreword by Hilary Swank. Good times.
