We all love being in love. It’s such a grand, romantic time. Everything looks more beautiful when there’s someone you want to share your life with, and you wake up each day with a smile on your face. And you know what they say: there’s no better way to say “I love you” than with a personalized mixtape. 

Okay, so maybe they don’t say that – and mixtapes have gone the way of the dinosaur, so to speak. But you can still serenade your lover with the most romantic songs of the past decade. Since we’ve just kicked off a brand new year, while you’re sprinkling the rose petals and cooking a lovely dinner, you can cue some of these tunes up for a dose of nostalgia. It doesn’t get much more romantic than this.
