Are you buying a gift for the golfer in your life? When they are crazy for golf it might seem like the obvious choice to pick something relevant to the sport that they love, but actually choosing can be a bit of a minefield. Here are five ideas for amazing golf-related gifts.
Something personalised to wear on the course
Many golfers enjoy having accessories and personalised wearables to take out onto the course – it gets them feeling confident and feeling more professional when they play. If you are interested in a golfing gift that won’t break the bank but will help them to really look the part on the day, why not choose something personalised for them to wear?
There are multiple options available ranging from lucky socks and personal golf gloves to golf tee holders and unique cufflinks. Personalized short-sleeve athletic T-shirts are another viable gift option. You can have their initials or a design printed or embroidered on the shirt to personalize your gift. These simple gifts that have a real, practical use can be something that they will use for a long time to come, so it really does make for a great choice, whether they have a birthday coming up or you just fancy splashing out on them.
Something to improve their game
One thing that every golfer has in common is that they would love to improve their game. Whether the golfer in your life is a relative beginner to the course, or if they have been playing for years, there will undoubtedly be aspects of their game that they would love to boost. This means that some of the best gifts that you can buy for a golfer are the ones that will make them better at golf.
Now, there is a truly broad range of options available when it comes to practice aids, so it is really worth doing some research into the kind of thing they would like. If you know golf well, have a chat with them about their game and see if you can discover the kind of things they would like to be better at. If not there are always classic gifts that can be used to improve your game at home such as a putting mat or a chipping net.
Something to improve their golfing fitness
Buying something to improve someone’s fitness might not seem like a very polite gift, but we are specifically talking here about golfing fitness. Almost every golfer in the world could improve their game by working on their golf fitness – becoming more flexible and gaining a stronger core can pay huge dividends out on the course.
Once again, there are many options available. Some of the best gifts are the items that function simultaneously as a training aid and fitness tool. A great example of this is the Orange Whip Swing Trainer. This can be used to help a golfer work on their swing and develop a more consistent game. But at the same time, they will be working out their core muscles and boosting fitness.
Something a little different
Sometimes it can be a really challenge when you are trying to find something to buy for a golfer. You might have bought lots of gifts in the past and not want to resort to some sort of novelty item they will never use – you would be rather get them something they are going to enjoy.
Instead of a throwaway gift, a great choice for a golfer could be an experience day. This is the chance for the golfer in your life to go and try a different course somewhere they would never normally go, and it can be easily combined with a golfing lesson. It is likely that golf courses near you will offer lessons or day passes, but it might be even better to combine a holiday with a trip to a course.
It may well be the case that you are looking for a gift that really offers that something special. Perhaps they are celebrated a milestone birthday or you have a big anniversary coming up and you want to treat them. As with many pastimes golf offers you the opportunity to spend just about as much money as you like on a gift.
High tech wearable range finders are a popular choice, and if you’re going all out you might want to look into the possibility of having a full-sized golf simulator constructed.
