WWYD? BM Gifts

I know, everyone is always asking about BM gifts so sorry to beat a dead horse...I plan on getting them all "The Flip" which is a mini digital camera.  They have them on sale on amazon for $128 each which is the lowest I have found them thus far.I keep hesitating though because my original plan (until i saw the cost) was to order them personalized ones...on the website you can get them made with a picture you upload or they have different designed ones.This costs a good deal more than i can spend, but I keep thinking that once I buy them the cost of the other will go down.I know I am thinking too much into this (turning a mole hill into a mountain) and I should just buy them off of amazon and get it over with before amazon's cost goes back up, right?

    Buy them now.  I would rather have one that is plain than personalized, for something like that.If you really want to do something person you could always get a case for them in their favorite color.

    Not trying to be mean or anything because I think you idea is cute. Don't most people have their own digital cameras that they use? Most people I know are really into cameras so they buy ones that suits what they need it for. If someone bought me a camera as a BM gift I would think it would be really cool but probably use it as my back up camera. Sorry if that didnt help you. Just trying to give my honest oppinion.

    I think The Flip is a digital video camera.

    questoin ~ Is it a camcorder and a regular camera or just a camcorder? I do like the customized ones with the pictures but IMO I don't think it's worth an extra $100 just for that. I would just order them now off amazon.

    that's a good idea!  but like PP said, just make sure this is an item they wouldn't have. I think I'm going to shop Overstock or Amazon for nice digital picture frames.  I will upload specific pictures on each memory card so each BM has a personalized gift. but, yeah if Amazon is having a super sale, bite the bullet and do it now

    It's a nice gift, prob more so for a GM, but I am sure it would get use.$128?  I've seen them for around 70-80 bucks.

    Hey USER!  Girl's can like gadgets too!  ;)And I have seen some of the "older generation" ones for around 85 bucks...but the ones I found on amazon are the one of the new versions and have twice as much time--the cheaper ones i saw have 60 minutes of video and these have twice that...

    User - girls would love to get a flip, I know I would.  But if you got me a pink one I would not be so thrilled.
