In the 1980s and 90s, untold hours were spent on creating the perfect mix tape or CD for a friend, family member, or co-worker. Those mix tapes and CDs then became beloved gifts that countered the consumer culture of the day.
Fast forward 20 years, we now have custom playlists on cloud services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music. As a result, it's now possible again & a lot easier to spend untold hours creating the perfect playlist and giving it as a gift.
In fact, playlists are one of our favourite zero-waste gift idea.
