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 (, $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” (, $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.

gifts for mom
Moms can always use a few moments of zen. They spend their days running here, driving there, and keeping track of countless schedules that rarely include downtime for them. This holiday, find gifts for mom that encourage her to find her inner zen — even if she never plans to set foot in a yoga studio.

Relaxing and zen-worthy gifts

We gathered the most relaxing — and beautiful — yoga accessories we could find for a lovely collection of zen-worthy gifts. In a world centered on meeting other people’s needs, workout attire and stylish gym bags often get pushed to the bottom of shopping lists.

If the mom you’re gifting carves out time for yoga, a new mat, yoga tank or fabulous mat bag are perfect gifts. The Energy Mat is a gift that keeps on giving zen moments — stimulation points along the mat help relax and re-energize moms.

Have some fun with yoga gear!

Fun yoga gear is good for more than yoga classes. The cozy yoga socks offer traction during classes but are also the perfect way to keep your polish from smudging after a pedicure. Pretty headbands are useful during workouts but also smooth out even the worst hair mornings.

For women who grab their zen in stolen moments, try a new travel mug — maybe add your favorite teas as a little bonus gift — and a copy of Karma Gone Bad. In her travel memoir, Jenny Feldon takes readers around the world to India, where she realized controlling her surroundings wasn’t nearly as zen-worthy as finding her own happiness. Moms will find their own zen as they sip a warm beverage and fall in love with India through Feldon’s eyes and words.

1. Adidas Tank by Stella McCartney $90
2.  PrAna June Yoga Tote $80
3. Contigo AutoSeal Travel Mug $20
4. Karma Gone Bad $11
