Did you know that mix cds are not just for teenagers in love? I think that a mix cd is a great way to show someone how you feel about them, and you don't have to be 15 to do it! Not only are they perfect for romantic relationships, but also for friendships and even for kids!
- Do your kids have favorite songs on lots of different cds? Make a "(Child's Name)'s All Time Favorite Hits" cd.
- Have some fun memories with friends associated with certain songs? Create a "Remember When...?" cd for your best buds.
- Do you have a friend that sometimes needs a pick-me-up? Make a cd of upbeat and inspirational songs, for when you're not around to give him/her a pep talk.
- "Have I told you lately that I love you?" - make a cd that reminds your sweetie how much you love them.
With internet sites like iTunes, it is easier than ever to collect songs for a cd. Just set up an account, purchase the songs you need for $0.99 each, and download them to your computer. Then just burn them onto a cd! And actually, you don't even have to purchase the songs if you don't want to- just load the songs from your own cd onto your computer, and then you can burn them onto another cd.
Don't forget- personalization is key. Have fun with the label, and be sure to include brief notes on why you selected the songs you did for the recipient. With a few heartfelt messages, a mix cd can be a gift for someone to cherish for years to come.
Give the gift of music this Christmas!
