It’s one of my favorite times of the year and this holiday, I’m looking forward to welcoming my sons home from college, enjoying time with my daughter, and watching a lot of football.
Of course, it’s also a great time to celebrate loved ones with incredible gifts and Microsoft has some great options – from the must-have Xbox One X or amazing value of the Xbox One S, to positively reviewed Surface devices, to cutting-edge technology like Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
