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.

Love these! I gave my husband mix CDs when we first started dating and would love to give him one of these for a cute throwback gift.

Barbara Ismailovic said...

Cool :)

yeah, I remember mix tapes. Although they had the worst quality comparing other music carriers, but it was something romantic in it. I still keep mines somewhere in the attic, reminds me of some teenage days :)

As someone who completely missed the boat on mixed tapes (I'm only 20), I'm always intrigued by these throwback product revivals. A lot of my friends have the new polaroid cameras! I'll definitely be trying this out to impress all my millenial peers.

This is adorable! I remember waiting for the songs to come on the radio to record it on my mixed tape. And then rewinding and fast forwarding, knowing the order of the songs. "Oopp it's after this one. Keep going...."

Lesley P said...

I love this idea! My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years, but for one of those years he was deployed in Afghanistan. I missed him so much but we couldn't talk on the phone, we just had email. We would email back and forth little notes, and a lot of the time I would send songs that reminded me of him and songs to cheer him up. Would love to have a cute way to do it in person now! :)

Clio said...

Super cute. My pals and I used to make each other mixed cd’s for our birthdays…being a teenager in the noughties wasn’t as cool as the 90’s!

This would be such a cute gift for my (very) long-distance boyfriend!

Tamsin Lim said...

Lovely giveaway idea! In my teens I used to show boys that I liked them by making 00's mixtapes - iTunes playlists burned on to CDs! Then my current boy and I started our relationship by sending one another songs we liked via Spotify :) Music is, and always will be a huge part of my relationships, even the platonic ones!

Lydia DeWolf said...

Oh man these are adorable! Cassettes give me such nostalgia.
