Record a "Start Your Day" loving voice message on a CD and leave it in your loved one's vehicle to hear automatically when they turn on the ignition. Your voice and loving words create a personal gift.
Make the next Valentine's Day, birthday, anniversary, or any other occasion special by sharing your heart in a unique way.
Since you are recording your own voice, you can record over and over until the message is just right. Your sweetheart can always replay it as a reminder of your love.
Your "Start Your Day" message can be short and simple like a romantic card or long and detailed like a love letter. Tell your beloved: reasons why you love them, what makes them special to you, how you feel when you think of them, etc.
Some free voice recorder apps on your smart phone or tablet also make recording your message easier. Once completed, simply email the recording and burn onto a CD using iTunes (for Win and Mac) or Windows Media Player on your computer. The format needs to be in WAV to be read on a standard cd player. If the vehicle's CD player also plays MP3, leave it in that format. See the instructions below to begin.
Most vehicles keep the radio or CD player on when the ignition is turned off. If not, leave a written message to play it on the steering wheel.
Test the CD in the vehicle to make sure it works properly. Adjust the volume so your voice is not blaring at your beloved. Reset to the first track, wait for the CD to start to play, and then turn off the ignition.
