A lot of thought—and effort—goes into making a solid mix tape. Which song goes first? Which goes last? What do you include? What do you leave out? This lighthearted novelty makes things a little bit easier, combining a modern USB stick with the nostalgic look of an old cassette. Give it as the ultimate throwback gift, but remember: Never pick two songs by the same artist to play one after the other.
How it Works
One part fun, one part function, this USB flash drive features a cassette-like case to mimic the feel of an old-school mix tape. Just plug it in to your PC or Mac and add your MP3s. The 1GB hard drive can hold a few more songs than your old cassette tape—up to 900 minutes in all. But finding the right order for all those tunes… well that’s up to you.
How to Use
Making the perfect mix may be hard, but using this USB stick isn’t. Just load your MP3s on the flash drive, place it in the cassette-style gift case, and add your personalized message in pen.
