Have you ever participated in Giving Tuesday? If you aren't familiar with the term, Giving Tuesday refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving - after Black Friday and Cyber Monday - when we stop obsessing over buying and start thinking about giving. It's the day when charities, businesses, community centers and students from around the world come together to celebrate generosity and to give! Giving Tuesday involves more than 10,000 organizations around the world, including one of my favorite brands - Microsoft! I've partnered with Microsoft on this sponsored post today because I can't think of a better place to do your holiday shopping while doing social good!
I've been a big fan of Microsoft ever since I entered the world of technology in the 90s. From my laptop computer and my tablet to my personal phone, it's all Microsoft! We were fortunate enough to have our very first Microsoft store open in Miami last year, and it was an exciting day for our techie community! The Microsoft Store has everything your little tech-savvy heart desires - and then some! Between all-in-one desktops, Surface, tablets of all shapes and sizes, Windows Phones, speakers, headphones and all sorts of accessories - and of course, Xbox One consoles, there's something for everyone on your holiday shopping list!
Holiday Gift Ideas for Tweens and Teens
Do you have a hard-to-shop-for tween or teen? The Microsoft store has great holiday deals on all of the things that make our tech-obsessed teens' eyes light up! The new HP Stream 7 Signature Edition tablet, the Jawbone MINI JAMBOX and Coloud Boom Nokia Headphones are all great gift ideas!
Or how about the Xbox One to make your favorite gamer's heart go pitter-patter?
Microsoft Gift Ideas for High School and College Kids
For the high school and college students in your family, the HP Stream 13 Signature Edition laptop makes a great gift AND it comes with a free year of Office 365 Personal! With a 13.3 inch display, an Intel Celeron processor and 2 GB of memory, it's the perfect laptop when it's time to buckle down and get to work on those school assignments.
Or how about the ever-popular Beats by Dr. Dre Mixr Headphones? They come in plenty of fun colors and there's even an online exclusive YELLOW pair available right now!
If you're in the mood to splurge, or need an extra special gift this holiday season for your spouse or partner - or just need something awesome to blow your holiday bonus on - check out the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 holiday bundle, which has all of the power of a laptop in the convenient size of a tablet!
