    I love mix tapes as gifts. When we were first married, we were B-R-O-K-E and one Christmas I poured through every song I had access to (before MP3s) and created the ultimate mix tape for my new wife. I put it and a bottle of perfume (that I save up for) in a small gift box that I handmade and covered with cool paper.

    She still has the box and we listen to the tape all the time in the car.

    For the project in question I scored a 2gig MP3 player and FM transmitter for the car. So I’ve got a playlist created of the kids doing their thing (starting with Happy Mother’s Day), but for every day use she can put it on shuffle and listen to about 400 different songs from our collection. The kids singing is mixed in as well, so every now and then they’ll pop up as well.

    As for the Forever Stamp- you can do better with a generic savings account earning interest. Buy them for practical use, but don’t expect them to be a good financial investment. My problem is all the “interim” stamps in my desk without a cost written on them– I have no idea which are left from which postage increase.
