A Mother’s Day Public Service Announcement

As we find fabulous new gifts, we’ll add them to our Mother’s Day tab. Here are our current top picks:

For an extra-special touch, load up the iPod with a custom mix, made on iTunes. Remember making mix tapes for your friends and crushes on back in middle-school? It would take hours, and people would take pride in making the perfect mix tape. With the advent of iPods and digital music, making a mix takes only minutes. Creating a unique mix on iTunes is a lot simpler, but still just as thoughtful! And, if Mom likes the songs, she can complete the album for less: Bought a Single? Get the Album for Less with Complete My Album at iTunes.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
