Last Thursday, Cousin Kat and I joined Microsoft and Lucky Magazine to preview the latest and greatest in Microsoft technology, as well as specially curated lifestyle accessories from Lucky.

I didn’t include tech gifts in my holiday gift guides this year because quite frankly, technology scares me and I’m not comfortable recommending products I haven’t personally tested/reviewed.  But over pomegranate martinis and a great soundtrack, we got to try out some of this year’s hottest tech holiday gifts.  Here are my favorites:

Xbox 360 and Kinect: The best all-in-one entertainment experience for the whole family.  I love the Sesame Street 2-way TV experience for Bubba and Nike + Kinect Training for Leo and I.  Totally debating whether Santa should bring this or not.

Surface: While I love my iPhone, I’m a PC user and need my Office products.  This tablet and dock (in pink!) is high on my wishlist.

Wedge Mobile Mouse & Keyboard: Architecturally stunning, they give tablet users speed and full-size keyboard & mouse efficiency.

Skype Gift Cards: Such a great idea to stay connected to loved ones.

How’s your holiday shopping coming along?  Don’t forget to enter my Julep Box Giveaway for a chance to win some fab nail polishes.

Have a glamorous week!

  1. LOVE that sweater!

  2. I too have steered clear of tech recommendations. Write what you know and all…

  3. Jill, your hair looks ah-maaaaaaazing. Love the outfit too! :)

  4. I like the surface too. I think it’s the cute commercials and plus I’m a PC girl all day.

    You look absolutely beautiful… seriously! You make casual look gorge. :-)

    The Skype Gift Cards are interesting – didn’t know they offered those. Very useful!

  6. I love that sweater! This year we are cutting back on gifts in a major way, a bit nervous about it, but then again I don’t have to stress about it. I like the Skype gift card ideas, especially since I call Chile so much.

  7. You look so cute! Love your hair! Can I borrow?

    Um, hello hair! What amazing volume and movement! I love this sweater and shirt pattern mixing, too. I didn’t know you could get a mouse for a tablet– that is pretty awesome!

  3. […] can I say, I’m really digging all the kitschy crew neck sweaters this season.  Last week it was hearts, this week an owl.  I have a couple more up my sleeve […]
