I'm getting a bright-freaking-red iPod nano for my mom for Christmas, and I'm not telling her :) My question is should I get it engraved? If so, with what? I was thinking perhaps something like "Live free." She's always wanted to live without any ties, like a feather in the wind. Should I just ask her what her favorite quote is? I really really don't want her to know at all what I'm getting her, so if you have any suggestions on how to ask without actually *asking* please let me know! I just realized I can ask my sister to ask, but my question of whether or not I should get it engraved still stands.
EDIT: I'm going to say that someone asked about your life quote on TQC and I need a good one as an answer. You know, that's not such a bad question: What is your life motto?
EDIT 2: So I got in my car to go to the dentist and I answered my own question. I'm getting it engraved with, "They give you five, you take five." :)
