Try NSBAR Tech Guide for unique holiday gift ideas

holiday-gift-guide-nsbarFor the third straight year, the North Shore Barrington Association of REALTORS® (NSBAR) is offering members a convenient online collection of holiday gift ideas through its Tech Guide. And other Illinois REALTORS® and family members can take advantage, too.

“We developed it because members and their spouses were constantly asking for advice on what to purchase during the holidays,” says NSBAR Information Technology Manager Mike Gazdzik. “We do it as a benefit for the members. We are fulfilling a need.”

A quick scan of the Tech Guide provides 10 categories of gift ideas:

  • Televisions
  • Tablets
  • Cameras
  • Green Tech
  • Business & Travel
  • Health
  • Home
  • Under $150
  • Under $50
  • Safety and
  • Fun & Games.

“The Tech Guide is unique,” says NSBAR CEO Steve Volkodav. “We offer the members one place to look for the normal gifts like TVs and tablets but also the unusual like a solar powered grill and safety devices disguised as jewelry.  We are taking the guesswork out of their decision making. We do not make any money off of it. Even though some of this can be found on Amazon, much of it is in places most people wouldn’t think of looking.”

According to Gazdzik, additional ideas will be posted on NSBAR’s Facebook page and through its Twitter account. But as the disclaimer says on the website, he says many of the products can be found on other websites. Before making a purchase, he suggests you look on those sites to get the best deal.
