Microsoft + Lucky Holiday Soiree

Microsoft and Lucky Magazine held a fun Holiday Soiree where they highlighted some great gift options, including Microsoft’s first-ever tablet, Surface, Windows 8 PCs, Windows Phones, Xbox & Kinect. There were fun stations where guests got the chance to try out the different items and games. Coupled with great food and drinks, it was a great holiday party.

The new Windows Phone is a great gift for that person that seems to have everything. It’s the only phone with Live Tiles. This allows you to personalize your screen according to what matters most in your life. For the fitness enthusiast in your life, consider the Nike + Kinect Training For XBox 360. Priced at just $49.99, this is like having a personal trainer in your home.

I’m obsessed with the new touch screen technology. You can personalize your PC desktop to reflect your personal style. There’s also a great sliding option so that you can use it as a laptop or a tablet….your choice!

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers, consider the Wedge Mobile Mouse and Keyboard. These have full mouse and keyboard capabilities and both are priced below $100. Another great stocking stuffer is Skype Gift Cards. You can get 400 minutes for as little as $10. I love Skype because it allows me to keep in contact with my niece in North Carolina. Now, you can stay in contact with loved ones no matter where they live, too.
