It's the holidays! Need ideas for gifts for your loved ones (or even yourself)? We've rounded up the best affordable gifts for Windows lovers this holiday, ranging Microsoft's entire lineup of first party accessories such as the Surface Pro Type Cover and more.


The Microsoft Arc Mouse is a great holiday gift as it's unique, stylish, and incredibly useful. You also can't go wrong with an Xbox Controller, as long as the person you're giving the controller to is a gamer, of course.
