The holidays will be here before you know it, and that means rushing around trying to get everything done, from the shopping and wrapping to the cooking and entertaining. It really is the busiest time of the year!
Tech Journalist Andrea Smith is here, and she’s partnered with Office Depot to bring you some tips on what to buy and how to simplify your holiday shopping season.
Start by giving yourself the gift of time. Pick one store that sells everything you need for gifting and for yourself. Whether you like to shop online or go into the store and get hands-on, Office Depot and OfficeMax have you covered with everything from tech services to tech gifts for everyone on your list. You can even make your own holiday cards.
Someone always on the go needs a lightweight, slim laptop like the Lenovo IdeaPad S340. This 15.6-inch laptop has a full HD display, a powerful processor built for multi-tasking and all the latest ports for charging and fast transfer speeds. It’s also got a webcam for video chatting with relatives who can’t make it for the holidays.
Another great option is the TUL Wireless Charging Notebook. Check this out, for those who still like putting pen to paper, it’s a real leather notebook, not a laptop. It has a built-in battery so when you’re in a meeting, you can remove a page to take notes while wirelessly charging your phone. Set your compatible phone down on the cover and charge it up while you’re working on that holiday to-do list.
Now if you want to hang that holiday list so you can easily see it, or want to deck the halls with holiday pictures, try using Cling Notes. They have static-stay technology, so the sheets stick to walls, windows and smooth surfaces – no push pins or tape required.
Feeling creative and want to make your own holiday cards? Office Depot’s Print and Copy services can do that for you. You can order online and pick up in store, or however you like to shop.
Here’s where you can really make a difference and save yourself some time as well! Instead of playing tech support and fixing the family computer when you visit, get them a subscription to Office Depot’s tech support plan. Their tech team can help get their new computer set up, fix the printer, answer tech questions and be available 24/7 via chat or phone for remote help, so you don’t have to!
