It’s getting cooler every day in Minnesota, with the smell of fireplaces wafting on the cool air and plenty of brilliant red and orange leaves drifting by. It won’t be long before we’re all planning our Thanksgiving dinner menus and starting to put together our holiday shopping lists. And if you’ve got a golfer in your life to shop for, one thing is for certain: their holiday gift will probably be golf-related.
With experts warning that holiday shopping could be tricky this year, many shoppers are planning ahead to get theirs out of the way early. At Totally Driven, we’ve got you covered this year with plenty of fantastic ideas for your favorite golfer or even yourself!
In this post, we’re breaking down the top gift ideas for golf lovers of every age and skill level. To shop for your favorite golfer, stop by our golf store today!
1. Golf Balls
While to the uninitiated, golf balls might seem like a pretty mundane gift. But trust us, you can’t go wrong with quality golf balls in your favorite golfer’s stocking. Most experienced golfers have a favorite type of golf ball they like to use and they don’t tend to stray from it. However, if you’re shopping for a relatively novice golfer, it’s a good idea to ask for recommendations from a professional golf store associate, but you can’t go wrong with Titleist or TaylorMade.
Many golfers swear that rangefinders are must-haves for serious players. A rangefinder is used to help golfers estimate their distance and shot accuracy, helping them determine how to best hit their balls. They can take away much of the guesswork from your swing and even help golfers decide which club to use.
There are a wide variety of rangefinders to choose from, and it’s good to get a professional recommendation and check out online reviews. And the rangefinder you end up choosing may depend on what you’re looking for. While GPS rangefinders can be a bit faster, laser rangefinders are the best bet for accuracy.
3. Chipping Net
There’s really no substitute for practicing your swing with a golf fitness trainer. But a home chipping net gives golfers a place to practice in their downtime at home, too. Just make sure your golfer is practicing the right way and not just repeating the same bad habits over and over again.
4. Golf Ball Display Cabinet
Some golfers enjoy collecting golf balls from a favorite course or a special event. If you’re shopping for one of those golfers, a golf ball display cabinet gives them the perfect place to store and display their walk down memory lane.
5. Professional Golf Lessons
Even if your golfer has been playing for years, there is really no skill level short of PGA pro level that can’t benefit from professional golf coaching. At Totally Driven, we offer several different levels of golf training and coaching. To find out more, give us a call.
6. Custom Golf Log
Give your golfer something beautiful to record his or her games in with a custom golf log. From simple golf journals to bespoke leather golf logs, you can find something out there for every golfer’s unique taste.
7. Golf Magazine Subscription
Who doesn’t love getting snail mail? With a golf magazine subscription, your golfer can enjoy his or her gift every month for the rest of the year. There are a number of popular golf magazines out there including GOLF Magazine and Golf Digest.
8. Golf Towels
If you’re shopping for a golfer who is relatively new to the sport, you might consider investing in necessities like golf towels. A towel is not always just a towel, especially when it’s custom-designed for golf performance. Invest in a highly absorbent microfiber or terry towel that’s thick enough to withstand plenty of use. The best golf towels come with carabiners or clips to attach to a golfer’s bag.
9. Golf Gloves
Whether a golfer prefers to use one glove or both, golf gloves can improve his or her grip dramatically. Gloves also protect a player’s hands against blisters when they’re spending a lot of time playing.
10. Golf Polos
Why not help your golfer dress for success? The golf polo is designed to be flexible and breathable, and every golfer looks a whole lot sharper in one. Aim for a fabric that looks great while boasting moisture-wicking performance. And make sure to purchase a polo with plenty of stretch. Puma, Under Armour, Nike, and TravisMathew are among the best brands to choose from.
