I'll be traveling with a new iPod Touch still in the packaging that's a gift for the wife (who will be traveling with me). I'm assuming TSA won't make me put this through the xray outside my backpack right? I normally travel with an iPad and sometimes they make me take it out and sometimes they don't. Never traveled with an iPod though. Anyone know if they will make me take it out and spoil the surprise for the wife?

You should be ansolutely fine. I usually put everything I have in my trouser pockets into my cabin luggage just before screening and nobody has ever told me to take my iPod or phone back out.
Come to think of it, I've even had a gift-wrapped item on me without knowing what it was - since it was a gift for me. Airport security (I don't remember where it happened) asked me to take it out for an individual scan, cleared it and gave it back to me with no further questions asked. A common item like an iPod really shouldn't cause any trouble.
