Wednesday giveaway

Do you remember getting mixtapes? In high school, we'd give them to friends and crushes, and Alex and I actually made mixtapes for each other when we were first dating. (I remember putting on a bunch of romantic songs and hoping I wouldn't freak him out!)

Well, today's giveaway is from Milktape, the cutest USB cassette mixtapes. You just drag and drop some sweet songs, give it to someone, and they can plug them into their computer. How sweet is that?

Five lucky readers will win a Milktape. For a chance to win, please visit Milktape and leave a comment below. Five winners will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck! Update: The winners have been emailed. Thanks for playing.

I moved a year ago, and it would be sweet to pass this back and forth between one of my dear friends and I. We used to trade music a lot and this would make it happen again!

I used to make my high school best friend mix tapes all the time and would often hit record/stop when a song came on the radio. Love this modern take!

This is the sweetest thing of all time. I can think of so many people I would make these for.

Angela Brinkley said...

I am in love! When my husband and I started dating in high school, he would leave me mixed tapes on my window sill. He did it so often, that whenever I woke up, I would jump out of bed and open the blinds to see if there was a new mix waiting for me. It's one of my favorite memories : )

In fact...one day when I was visiting my parents many years later, I opened my blinds and saw a small square box sitting on the window sill. I was so excited...I ran out there to see what it was. I grabbed the box, turned around and there my husband was down on one knee.

Funny how the mixed tape tradition he started 7 years prior, when we were 16, became the most perfect proposal : )

Sonja the Sentimentalist said...

Oh so love these! :) I was so young when cassettes were a big thing, but I remember listening to them in my Sony walkman. In my teenage and early 20s years we gave mix CDs instead, but such a good idea with the USB. And liking the fact that it only can store around 15 songs, which also brings back the memory of the real tape.

Daniya said...

This looks lovely. Reminds me of when I received my first cassette player as a gift from my parents.
My husband is a nerd and loves all these technological gadgets. Unfortunately he is not as much of a music fan as I am but he does sweetly try. This would make the perfect and a memorable gift for him with the personality of both of us infused. :)
