The holiday season is just around the corner, and you may be wondering what to get a golf lover for Christmas. Choosing the perfect gift can be challenging, especially if you're not well-versed in the world of golf.
Here, we offer the ultimate guide to help you find the ideal golfing gift - from stocking fillers to ‘main’ presents and everything in between.
Golf clubs: The heart and soul
Golf clubs are the bread and butter of any golfer's game. While buying a full set of clubs can be a significant investment, consider gifting an individual club that complements their existing set. Popular options include a new driver, putter, or a versatile hybrid club.
Help the golfer in your life revolutionise their game with the Wilson Staff Dynapower Graphite Shaft Irons for maximum ball speeds, the TaylorMade MG4 Chrome Tiger Woods Grind Golf Wedge for versatility, or an Evnroll Putter for more successful putts.
How to gift wrap a golf club: First of all, place the club in a headcover if you have one. Not only will this protect the golf club, it will also result in a sleek end result - plus it counts as an extra present! Wrap tissue paper around the head of the club, twisting it around the shaft. Next, cover some wrapping paper tubes in wrapping paper and slide them over the shaft. For a finishing touch, tie a ribbon into a bow around the point where the tissue paper and tubes meet.
Golf trolleys: The game-changer
A golf trolley is the ultimate present for avid golfers who love to hit the course frequently. Choosing the right golf trolley is a game-changer, saving the effort of lugging clubs around the fairway and feeling exhausted mid-game. While this is a gift on the larger side, it's sure to make a huge impression - both on Christmas day and during every game of golf.
If you’re seeking a trolley that takes up little space, you’re spoiled for choice. The Motocaddy Cube Compact Push and PowaKaddy Micra Cube Push Compact are budget-friendly options that perform flawlessly, while the Motocaddy S1 Lithium 2023 Electric and PowaKaddy CT8 GPS Gun Metal Lithium 2023 Electric come with all the bells and whistles.
How to decorate: If you want to go the extra mile, decorate the golf trolley with festive lights and ribbons.
Golf bags: The stylish and practical essential
A high-quality golf bag is a must-have for any golfer. Look for a bag that suits their style and needs - whether it's a stand bag, cart bag, or a stylish carry bag - and check whether it fits their golf trolley (if applicable).
For a stand bag that offers a little extra, the Big Max Golf Dri Lite 7 Water Resistant Stand Bag holds four more clubs than traditional compact bags, meaning its owner can travel and play without compromise. If it’s a cart bag you seek, the Motocaddy Dry Series Waterproof Golf Cart Bag features 14-way full-length dividers, an easy access carry handle, and much more. Alternatively, combine the benefits of both these choices with the PXG Golf Hybrid Stand Bag, blending the roominess of a cart bag with the functionality of a stand bag.
How to gift wrap a golf bag: Consider wrapping the golf bag in golf-themed paper and securing it with a bag tag. This will not only make the gift look impressive but also add a personal touch.
Golf balls: The stocking filler
Non-golfers may question ‘are golf balls a good gift?’. Golf balls might seem like a simple present, but they're always appreciated by golfers. Opt for premium golf balls from well-known brands such as Taylormade or Titleist, or choose personalised balls with their name or a special message.
For those who refuse to give up their golfing during the darker months, yellow golf balls are much easier to spot. Or, for golfers chasing faster ball speeds and enhanced distance, Wilson Duo Soft Golf Balls are a solid choice.
How to wrap: Place the golf balls in a festive holiday tin or a golf-themed gift box for an elegant presentation. You can also add a touch of humour by wrapping them inside a golf sock - ‘stocking stuffer’ style.
A golfing gift basket: The hole-in-one
Hampers are a lovely way of gifting several smaller presents. But what to put in a golf gift basket? Fill it with golf accessories, snacks, and small gadgets that golfers would appreciate. Some ideas include golf tees, gloves, a divot tool, a scorecard holder, and a GPS laser rangefinder.
How to assemble: Place all the items in a stylish golf bag or wicker basket. Add some decorative ribbon and a handwritten note to complete the gift.
Gift cards: The failsafe option
If you're still unsure about what to get, a gift card to their favourite golf store is always a great option. This way, they can choose the golf equipment or accessories they need the most.
Do golf courses offer gift cards? Some do! Check with the favoured course of the golf lover in your life. This is a great option for anyone wondering how to buy a round of golf as a gift.
Finding the perfect Christmas gift for golf lovers doesn't have to be a daunting task. With these ideas in mind, you can surprise the golfer in your life with a thoughtful and meaningful present that will make their holiday season truly special. Whether it's a new club, a decorated golf cart, or an essential box of golf balls, your gift will be sure to put a smile on their face and help them tee off the holiday season in style.
