So all in all, I shopped around the internet (e-bay, Apple store and amazon.com) and got the following for a grand total of $110.25:
1-apple ipod shuffle 2GB
1-travel AC charger
1-pink carrying case to hold i-pod and ear buds
1-pink earbud clip to hold extra cord out of the way when working in my garden
1-happy husband that knows he doesn't have to try to find me a birthday gift other than a nice dinner out in July! (and maybe some nice flowers...hint, hint)
I think that's a pretty good deal.
(By the way - my face still feels like hell - damn wisdom teeth).
