Holiday Tech for Teens Featuring the Microsoft Surface Pro (+Giveaway)
This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic
Let’s be honest, teens are sometimes hard to shop for. They’re too old for “toys” and unless you really know their style, clothes can be a dicey call.
It’s hard to go wrong with tech gifts though. Whether for play, social, study, or work, something that plugs in or comes with a charger is sure to please.
Hot Tech for Teens
The Microsoft Store has lots of hot tech options that would make great holiday gifts for teens. Here are a few of my favorites (and hey, Santa? I might not be a teen any more, but feel free to toss one of these on the sleigh for me).
Personalized Xbox Wireless Controller – Teens love gifts personalized to their tastes. With more than 8 million possible color combinations you’ll definitely be able to create just the right item. If you’re not 100% sure what they’d like you can give them a digital code so they can create their own.
Oculus Rift VR Headset – I promise you will be the favorite aunt/uncle/papaw/really generous neighbor/etc. if you show up with a virtual reality headset. This is the tech my generation has been wanting since we were five and now you can bring it home and wear it.
Raspberry Pi 3 – Remember when your parents told you video games and playing on the computer would get you nowhere in life? Turns out that wasn’t true at all. Give teens a jumpstart on computer programming with this simple single-board computer that will teach them the basics of coding. Everyone I know that has one of these loves it.
Microsoft Surface Pro – A powerhouse of a tablet, the Microsoft Surface Pro is a thing of beauty. It runs Windows and the Microsoft Office suite making it a great choice for writing school papers. The PixelSense Display gives budding artists free range of design with either the pen or their finger. And the two front-facing speakers running on Dolby Audio Premium will let them listen to their favorite tunes no matter where they are.
Now through December 24th you can save $150 on the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 i5 128GB.
Accessories & Downloads – Oh and don’t forget the stocking stuffers. Toss in a Microsoft Store gift card and they can use it to download music, movies, or TV shows; games for their phone, PC, or Xbox; or accessories like headphones or speakers.
Want a little help playing Santa? Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a $500 Microsoft Store gift card! Entry Requirements: US ONLY, 18 years and older, Giveaway runs from 12-9, 2016 to 1-6, 2017 11:59 PM EST. One winner.
