There's nothing like a personalized mixtape to bring back those retro butterflies, but let's face it — you got rid of your dual deck many moons ago. If you're planning on staying in this Valentine's Day (to play a few games, perhaps?), create the right mood with a sweet playlist. The good news for busy bees: Amazon and Pandora have come through with some preset playlists for love — Amazon with a popular music mix, and Pandora with a rad '80s love collection — so you can just sit back and enjoy the day instead of sweating it out over iTunes.
Of course, if you still love the idea of gifting a mixtape, you can always snag this cool Mix Tape card set from Etsy ($13), or one like it at your local paper store.
