Some Golf Gift Ideas For The Golfer On Your Gift List

By: Gregg Hall

Birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries bring dreams of beautiful gifts to the minds of some and feelings of dream to the hearts of others. Golf enthusiasts can be some of the easiest people to please if you know what to look for when considering their favorite activity.

Sportsmen share an energetic spirit and positive fanaticism of golf. They love to remember great games they had, thus a gift that triggers a great memory for them will put you at the top of their favorite people list. Consider the personalized gift of a scrap book to help your golfer remember his best times on the green. Research your subject to find out which pro your golf enthusiast emulates. Then find the souvenir that will really make him smile like a club with Tiger Woods' signature or a Ben Hogan shirt. Sports and souvenir shops also offer stuffed toys and other unique gifts for the hard-to-shop-for golfer, so you don't need to worry about finding something not to suit your loved one's taste.

Image matters to golfers, so he'll genuinely appreciate the right accessory. Consider protecting your special someone's eyesight and game with a great visor or pair of sunglasses. However, as you shop for the perfect pair of shades, stay away from those with a concaving effect. These will alter eyesight, an imperative sense on the green. Your sports fanatic will also appreciate comfy and stylish golf shirts, pants, and socks. Practice caution and observation, however, when searching out an apparel gift. Know your golfer's color, size, and style preference. Beyond the regular apparel you might want to consider watches and shoes as well.

Stay away from purchasing golf equipment. Golfers have specific preferences on clubs, and they most likely already have the clubs they prefer. Thus you will just waste money by purchasing something you think might help your golfer without knowing specifically what he prefers. Additionally, each golfer has a unique style and swinging technique. Golf club makers cater to those idiosyncrasies, and thus unless you truly understand your golfer's style, stay away from purchasing something that might actually hinder his game.

If you're looking for hardware, consider a tech-savvy tools for golfers. Universal gadgets that measure the speech of a player's swing and thus predict the distance a ball might reach with one swing can improve a golfer's game. If your loved one always wanted to know exactly how fast his ball could fly, consider purchasing a Speed Radar for him. This gadget will measure the speed of the ball with real time feedback. Another nifty tool, Caddy Laser Flags, monitors how far a golfer can reach in terms of ball displacement. All of these different gadgets will help improve the effectiveness of a golfer's game.

Consider these options the next time that pit in your stomach starts to form at the thought of a birthday, and your golf-loving love will know that you truly care about him and his game.
