Best Bets Daily: Thursday

Fresh Spin

Posted Nov. 29 2007
If you hate the look and feel of stark, unadorned recordable CDs, the new CD Packaging Kit from Chronicle Books is a clever way to imbue CD (or DVD) “mix tapes” with instant charm. There are four different kit styles—Petals in Pink, Fauna Mandala, Surf and Turf, and Happy Holidays—each created by different illustrators. Every kit contains 25 mix-and-match CD sleeves and labels and 60 matching stickers, ranging from elegant (particularly the Petals and Fauna sets) to ridiculously cute (the skiing cartoon polar bear in the Holidays set).

$15.95 each at Barnes & Noble.
