Remember the days you spent arduously creating custom mixtapes for that special someone? Opening Ceremony, an uber hip shop in New York City has just released a slew of “Playbuttons“, recreating the special made for you mixtape experience in button shaped mp3 players.

This week’s playbutton is the love button, which includes a suite of new, previously unreleased, and exclusive love songs. All proceeds from this playbutton will be donated to musicians on call, a non-profit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of hospital patients. The love button is selling at Open Ceremony in a limited edition of 500. ($25)
