I'm not the kind of person who tends to put things back in their box when I am done with them. For instance, my PC games and software CDs tend to stand in a stack on my desk most of their life. Sure, that causes scratches but as long as they work, I don’t really care.
If you are the same way and don’t like to put CDs or DVDs back in their cases when you are done with them, the kisses CD holders might be perfect for protecting your important discs. The things look like Hershey's Kisses candy in several metallic colors.
The spindle hole on your disc sits over the pointy part of the Kisses holder and it keep the data side of the disc from getting scratched. I thought that was what the label side of the disc was for. You can buy the Kisses Compact Disk Rest on the Yanko Design Store for $17.50 each. That seems expensive to me.
