ASK A GADGETTE
Dear Gadgettes:

This is Siavash from Iran, a long time BOL and Gadgettes listener .
I just wanted to as you girls a question, my girlfriend is a very stylish girl , she is a graphic designer and she is studying Art.
This is the fourth year we are together, I since then I have named a star after her, bought her a Louis Vuitton watch and a Louis Vuitton hand bag, a pair of Gucci shoes and a Nokia 5800, not counting the valentines and new years.
Now, this year I really don't know what to do? Should I buy her a DSLR? A HP VIV? Or ...?

Help me, what do you suggest under $1000

Best Regards

Siavash
