    Depending on budget:

    Funky mousemat (with ergonomic wrist-rest)
    Wireless anything...
    Mac games
    RAM (not exciting but always useful)
    iPod sock (or to hell with it, iPod)
    G5 2.5 with 8gb RAM with...
    30" Cinema Display (beeeeeeaautiful)...

    Hey... How about a donation to MacRumors Forums?!
    (let them put up a 'tar, they'll love it)

    It won't let them put up a 'tar, but it will give them a nice new title under their name.

    As for my list, not much has to do with a mac besides the iM3 stereo with remote for the iPod. Well that and rechargeable batteries for my wireless keyboard and mouse.

    If you know they use the iTMS then gift vouchers are cool - but remember, some people dont care about buying music legally so they will just use the 10 songs and then go back to downloading from p2p... :confused:

    iPod socks are cool if you're on a budget - buy one pack and you get 6 presents! :eek: :D

    Socks

    Oh and maybe some accessory for their ipod/mac if you think they'll use it like the camera link or the isight light.

    I think that the iTunes gift card is very nice choice. One that allows the person to choose the music that they want

    Where do you get an iSkin that is cheap?? They sale at OWC but they cost a bunch (37$)! Somebody was selling them for half price on Ebay but my sister said that it may be a cheap knock off version.. Do they sale at apple stores? If so, I will be going to the states in a few weeks... I will swing by.
