One of the presents I got my kids is new cases for their iPods. I bought two pairs for each of them so that when the other breaks or get old, they could just replace it with the other one. Glad they liked the design that I picked. These casing makes their iPod thicker. I am sure that this would protect their iPod from getting damaged when they accidentally drop it. This year, I was the one who shopped for our children's gifts. During the previous years, my husband woud buy extra gifts but I makde sure that this year, I only get what they can use and would like. I think I did good based on their reactions.
