Yesterday, I found myself thinking about CDs and gift giving. When I give CDs, I tend to put a lot of thought into the process. I carefully match the person or the occasion with the music. It can be fun, but sometimes I struggle.
So, I'm curious to know about your memorable gift giving and/or receiving moments. What was the CD and why was it a successful gift? Was it romantic? Great music for dinnertime? A new artist or composer that struck your fancy? Good music for walking in the park?
On the other hand, maybe I'm hopelessly behind the times and you're going to tell me that CD's are no longer the way to go? Is it all about downloading now?
If you have a minute or two, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
