Give the gift of technology this holiday season

The countdown is on to Black Friday, but The Microsoft Store wants to help you get a jump on your holiday shopping. Get your favorite teen the gift of the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet, a fabulous holiday deal you can pick up before Black Friday. Shoppers will love the $99 price tag — maybe even enough to snag one for themselves during the holiday deal. You’ll won’t want to wait until after the holidays for this fantastic tablet. The tablet comes with Office 365 Personal — Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook — and 1TB of OneDrive online storage, which is a $69.99 value, all for FREE. The free inclusion of Office will only be available throughout the holiday season as long as supplies last.

Why your teen will love the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet

Getting a great holiday deal isn’t the only reason to stuff his stocking with the HP Stream 7, available exclusively at The Microsoft Store, this year. The Intel quad core processor is designed for super-quick streaming for video and page loads, without a super-quick drain on your battery’s life. It’s lightweight and sleek, and it will operate just as sleekly with premium, free anti-virus software that never expires. Best of all, it comes without any annoying junkware or trialware, so your teen can watch videos, Skype with friends, and stream his favorite movies and TV shows with the peace of mind that his tablet will always be clean, fast, and protected.

More cool gifts for teen boys

1. Awkward Moment Card Game — Playing the Awkward Moment Card Game is a silly, comfortable way for teens to think about how they would react during the awkward moments life throws at them (Uncommon Goods, $19). Teens will have fun playing, but it also gives them a chance to really consider how they would — or wouldn’t — react during cringe-worthy moments.

2. Punch Bag Laundry Bag — Whether you’re sending your teen to college soon or simply teaching him to do his own laundry, the Punch Bag Laundry bag makes the chore just a bit more fun (Not Socks, $50). Hang it in the corner of the room or stow it in the closet, and let him work up a sweat lugging his clothes to the laundry room.

3. Tuis Wireless Headphones — Whether your teen wants them for gaming purposes or simply to listen to music without getting tangled in cords, he’ll appreciate the Wireless Headphones from Outdoor Tech (Nordstrom, $150). The stream-lined headphones are Bluetooth-enabled and collapsible, so they’re perfect for traveling.

4. Darth Vader Money Clip — Your favorite Star Wars fanatic will love trading in his current wallet for this black and silver money clip engraved with the iconic Sith Lord (Gifts.com, $45). Everything he needs will stay securely in the clip, thanks to the sliding grip security closure.

5. Bluetooth Ear Warmer — Cold weather doesn’t have to stop your teen from walking around with his favorite playlist unscrolling with each step. The HD II Bluetooth® Ear Warmer keeps his ears warm while playing music and answering calls on the built-in speakers (Nordstrom, $80).

6. Haters Gonna Hate Tee — For the teen who secretly loves watching vintage Muppet Show DVDs with his younger siblings, this tee is the perfect way to pay homage to the original “haters” (Gifts.com, $20). The balcony critics from the Muppet Show would probably find a way to critique this t-shirt, but it’s a great way to combine vintage characters with current language.

7. Neon Highlights Ani-Digi Watch — There’s no reason for your teen to be late, ever again, with the Neon Highlights G-Shock watch (Nordstrom, $99). The rugged watch boasts neon green details and a dual analog and digital display.

8. Mechanical Gaming Keyboard — Any teen gamer would love to be gifted this G710 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Logitech, $150). The keyboard is equipped to maximize game skills, with rapid-response key surfaces, a back-lit keyboard, immediate access to media controls, programmable keys that allow users up to 18 unique functions, and anti-ghosting technology.

9. GRID-IT Gadget Organiser — If you’re tired of your teen complaining about losing things in the bottom of his backpack, pick up the GRID-IT this holiday season (Not Socks, $30). The organizer helps keep everything in place, from earbuds to phones to pens.

10. Scrabble Mug — He might technically play Words with Friends, but your teen will get a kick out of the Scrabble® Mug from Wild and Wolf (Nordstrom, $10). Stuff it with candy and a gift card for him to invest in additional games apps, and this little mug will be a favorite gift this season.

Move over Tiffany’s there’s a new blue box in town!

Tieks \\, noun. The most versatile designer flats in the world. Made of the finest Italian leathers and designed to fold and fit in one’s purse. Wearable all day, every day.

A little birdie told me about these designer ballet flats called Tieks awhile back and well, I kind of ignored them.  Not because I didn’t like them, but because I wanted them.  I felt bad for wanting them.  So I thought if I ignored them they would just go away.  Nope.  They found me.  They literally found me.

I woke up one morning and sitting in my inbox was an email from the wonderful girls over at Tieks!  The email started by telling me that all the ladies in the office were big fans of Savvy Sassy Moms {blush} and they thought being a busy Mom running around LA I deserved a pair. {gasp!}  Who was I to disagree.  I mean, yes of course I deserved a pair.

So I did my best to try to pick out my favorite pair, which was SO hard.  I decided on Romantic Blush because I thought they would go with so many things.  The package that arrived was a small blue box with a beautiful purple flower on top.  Gorgeous.  I even thought for a moment that the flower would make a great headband for my daughter.  This was by far the most unique shoe box I had ever seen.  I immediately but carefully opened up the box to find a my new adorable shoes folded up inside.

The signature turqoiuse sole made me think that this brand is not only stylish but extremely smart.
Stylish and Smart are always a dangerous combination.

Since receiving my Tieks I have worn them everyday.  They’ve been to the grocery store, soccer practice, out to lunch, school pick-up, a PTA meeting and I’ve even sported them while working from home in my yoga pants. I can honestly say that these are the most comfortable shoes ever.  They are fashionable flats that will actually make you walk a little bit taller.  I’m in LOVE with them.

Save up Moms, Tieks are $195 – $265 but worth every penny!
You may want to put these on your Holiday Wish List.  I suggest forwarding this link to your husband.
