Valentine’s Gift – the USB Mix Tape


I know, it’s ridiculous. almost £30 for a mix tape.

But… there’s a charm to them that just refuses to die. And this is as close as we can get without tracking down a tape player and blank cassettes – and then how much use is that going to be for your loved one when they want to actually listen to it anywhere but their bedroom? Unless you can track down an old cassette Walkman too…

So, in the absence of blank cassettes, a tape player that will connect to my iMac, and a walkman to present with the cassette, this seems like a much better choice!

It’s a usb stick so EVERYONE can use it, but it also has the absolutely essential write-all-over-it-in-your-best-handwriting-with-meaningful-songs case.

Perfect for anyone over the age of 20 who actually remembers recording the top twenty off Radio 1 on their cassette player, or Top of the Pops off the tv…

The USB mix tape was Spotted over at I Love Retro – who we love more than is possibly natural for a website.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
