True and not true. Products are not sold to lose money, and I'll admit that there is some degree of marketing exclusivity here. However, some of these products are so strong (but efficaceous) and specialized that they should be offered only by those of us who know what the contraindications are, and how to deal with any potential side effects/complications.

The cosmeceutical question popped up just because I mentioned I was giving that to my g/f. i.e., can't make $$$ when giving Xmas gifts, right?

Thanks for the ideas everyone! I'm going with ihm to bestbuy today so maybe he will hint at something cool he wants, and then i'll do something sentimental. Baking is a great idea, maybe i will wake up early on christmas and make him brownies or something, nothing like brownies first thing in the morning haha.

No, listen to longtran. Enroutte is 17 and her parents buy her everything she needs. Once they grow up you (puck & ward) become the daddy.
Or you could just date 17 year olds. If you do, please send pics.

I went to see it at CompUSA, it is aesthetically a very beautiful machine. The screen resolution is far better than my portable DVD player. I think I will buy it from Apple directly. If you call and ask they said they will discount it $100 with free shipping. Make sure you get the latest one, they just upgraded some features in the last couple of weeks.

Good luck! I'm sure your girl will be very happy.

Merry Christmas!

Dude, I told you this already, DONT GET LV. LV is totally overr rated and not even great.

MARC JACOBS. MARC JACOBSS!

I think the Marc Jacobs bags are a bit more pricey but way better quality and more contemporary.

That's not true. My parents do NOT but me everything I need. Also.. even if I had less material things in my life, I would still cherish sentimental gifts over more superficial things. I'm not saying I'd like a cheesy 5-minute made card over an IPOD.. but if it was something super sentimental like a song, or something that took much effort, I would love it way more than an IPOD. Seriously.

The little things in life matter so much more. The little things are the memories that stay with you long after the ipods and laptops are obsolete.

It took me like a minute to figure out that LV= Louis Vuitton. I hate their bags.

i think coach is one of my favorite places to buy designer bags because they're cute but affordable --unliek LV who makes sin-ugly bags for prices that cost way more ;x not worth the extra few hundreds IMO

Kidding. Yeah.. I agree. Some designer bags look hideous. I still say Marc Jacobs. One of the only handbags I'll buy.
