I love those store-bought whipped butters. However now that we've moved overseas, we can't find them in the stores. Is there a way to make them at home?

Yes! It's quite easy in fact. The easiest way is to just run some regular unsalted butter through your food processor or in your stand mixer until it is whipped and soft — you want to just incorporate a lot of air into it. This will help soften it up for your meal. You can then leave it at room temperature for a few days to keep it soft.
If you want it to be soft and spreadable while cold, then you will need to add a little oil to the butter while mixing. Here's an example:
