well i have an ipod mini but there is this speaker/radio that you can hook any ipod up to. and I asked for that for christmas, so there are plenty of speakers that you can hook ipods up too, all you have to do is go to the apple store and pick one. there are also car attatchments so you can plug the ipod into the car stereo and it will play through the radio. you can also get covers for it. If you go to any apple store there are plenty of accessories and there are people there that can help you pick something for your cousin. you can also go to apple.com that might help too.
good luck! and Merry Christmas!!!!

there are skins to go w/ the ipod...but i havent seen any for the nano. an itunes gift card would be good...that way they can download music. On the nano that my friend is getting her mom went to sam goodey and got "the creature 2" sound system..its 165 i think here. Its all so cool! if you go to your local best buy curcuit city or something like that you may be able to find something.

I got an ipod over the summer and let me tell ya - they charge you up the a** for accessories.. The only accessory I've gotten is the outlet adapter, so you can charge it without the use of a computer by plugging it into the wall. Other than that it came with everything I needed, earphones, USB cable, clip/holder thingy. Oh, I did buy a case at American Eagle for it for $19 which is cheap compared to those iskin thingys which cost about $30

I'm getting a cover to protect my ipod from any more scratches. I got it for $5 at 5 below. I would also get new earphones... the ones that come with the ipod stink!

The USB power adapter? You have to buy that separate ($29). The ipod comes with the USB cord to plug it into the computer with, which is how most people charge the ipod. I wanted to be able to charge it without a computer so I had to buy the adapter..

Three words

Case Case Case. make sure the case protects the screen from scratches as well as the rest of the ipod. I really love my case, it came with a belt hook, arm wrap and wrist wrap. And, it's in my school colors :goodvibes:

Are we talking about the same thing? I have an ipod mini as well and I bought mine at the Apple store in Farmington, CT. This is what I'm talking about.. USB Power Adapter (http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore?productLearnMore=M9837LL/A)

By the way have you noticed that Apple doesn't even make the ipod mini anymore? They don't advertise it online and they don't have them in any of the stores that used to carry them anymore..

Yep, mine came with it, and so did my friends....I got mine at the Westfarms mall in CT.
