    SUCK UK's USB Mix Tape kit.

    Can't afford fancy gifts this holiday season? Got buckets of time on your hands, what with unemployment's super-streamlined online bennies application? Then why not make a mixtape for your bestie, crush, or ex-boss?

    Remember mixtapes? SUCK UK remembers mixtapes -- and how much cooler they were than mix CDs. So they came up with the USB Drive Mix Tape, a neat little kit that includes a USB memory stick designed to hold about an hour's worth of music and a container that looks just like an audiocassette to put it in. The kit includes pitch-perfect stickers for the track list and side labels, so you can bust a Bic out of your Trapper Keeper and put your feelings into doodles (may we suggest flowers, or a small skull and crossbones?).

    Pick up the USB Drive Mix Tape at Boerum Hill's Blue Ribbon General Store (also online) for $22.
