Golf Gift Ideas

Having never played golf, never set foot on a golf course, and never swung a golf club save for numerous rounds of Mini-Golf, I am uniquely qualified to suggest best-selling golf gifts. Look no further for innovative and off-beat gifting ideas personally selected and researched by a non-golfer (me). Here are a few of the many golf-related things about which I have no clue:

  • Keeping your head down, or not, on the backswing: I don't know which is correct.
  • Drive for show, putt for dough: I have no idea what that means.
  • If you find a ball in the woods, it's yours to keep: this may get me in trouble someday.
  • A hole-in-one on the 18th hole means you get a free game: somebody told me that once.

Regardless, these unique items will score a hole-in-one with the golfers on your gift list. Every product will have golfing aficionados driving long and straight, which I think is usually a good thing, unless you were supposed to be putting at the time. It's all good.

That's enough golf-related puns. Let us proceed to the ideas for golf gifts.

Trunk Organizer

I love this idea for golf gifting because golfers have tons of gear that needs to be organized in the trunk. They drive up to the golfing range in their expensive Lexus, they open the trunk, and inevitably huge disorganized heaps of expensive golfing gear spills out onto the expensive parking lot. With this fancy organizing bag, your favorite golfer will save lots of time looking for simple stuff such as golf tees, golf towels, and golf drinks.

A special section at the bottom of the organizer is designed to hold golf shoes, until the golfer puts them on his feet, then that special section can hold something else. I don't know what else would go in there: if there is another golfing item that is shaped like a shoe, I don't know about it.

Gear for Golf is a company that supplies gear for golf, including golf luggage. This item certainly qualifies as luggage and would look very nice when placed next to an expensive set of actual luggage in the back of an expensive Lexus. Your golfing friends will love it.

Callaway Golf Balls

I have heard of Callaway as a manufacturer of golfing products, therefore I selected this box of golfing balls to be included in my expose′ of golf gift ideas. Inside the cool looking box are exactly 12 golf balls. I don't know if 12 balls is sufficient for one game of golf. Perhaps the other golfers won't let you play unless you have a number of balls that is divisible by 6.

Callaway says that these balls have a High Power Core, which must be a good thing and will probably make all the other golfers like you more. The cover is made of something called "Ionomer". Every golf ball must have a cover, so this is probably as good a thing to make a golf ball cover out of as anything else.

You should probably order a box of these Warbird golf balls for each golfer on your gift list: it wouldn't be a good idea to order just one box and split it up between all your golfing friends. Individual golf balls are notoriously difficult to wrap.

Golf Tool

Golf is played outside. Sometimes a golfer is outside and suddenly needs to whip out a multi-purpose tool in order to perform impromptu repairs on golfing equipment. Unless MacGyver is included in the foursome, a really cool tool becomes a necessity.

This really cool tool includes screw drivers, blades, and other gizmos that probably would work very well on standard golf gear. I think golfers should be able to clean the dirt out of their shoes or rebuild the engine in the cart with this tool.

The Victorinox Corporation makes specialty equipment for members of the Swiss Army, who probably don't get to play much golf when they are patrolling Switzerland. I can't be sure that Swiss Army soldiers don't get a lot of time off to golf around, but I would assume that defending a country is more important that playing golf.

You can order this tool as a special set that includes some golf balls. I don't know if golf balls ever need to be repaired with a Swiss Army Golf Tool.

Golf Ball Water Globe

Even though I don't play golf, I understand that avid golfers enjoy weaving golf accoutrement (a French word for 'stuff') into their everyday lives. Honestly, you could probably put a picture of a golfer on a tennis ball and increase sales by 142%.

This snow globe has a golf ball and a golf tee inside it. It's filled with a watery substance that closely resembles water. That's about it. A golfer picks it up and tries to manipulate the ball onto the tee. There's no electronic score keeping. It does not connect to the Internet. It doesn't make noise or explode or interact with other golf ball water globes.

Die-hard golfers who think about golf even when playing with water globes will love this novelty gift. This item would not adapt well to other sports such as football or bowling.

Golfer's Gift Box

It should be evident by now that any product can be marketed to the golfing population. A golf logo, sticker, emblem, or tattoo strategically applied to anything with a price tag will generate new sales. This golfer's gift basket provides a veritable plethora of items that are somehow related to the great game of golf.

Every golfer on your gift list will know what to do with this basket of stuff. They will put some of it in their trunk, some in their golf bag, some in the pocket of their golfing pants, and some things they will cherish forever because they love the game of golf.

This basket is a wonderful corporate gift. Order 10 or a hundred of these baskets to give to all your customers and coworkers at the next company picnic. Every golfer will find something they can use or eat.

Windbuster Umbrella

I don't know which end of a golf club to pick up, but I do know that every golfer absolutely has to have the hugest umbrella possible. A handful of these umbrellas can shelter half of the gallery on the 18th hole at Augusta. One of these umbrellas is big enough for Mary Poppins to fly first class with her carry-on luggage.

Golfers continually search online web sites for bigger and better umbrellas. They hang out in luggage stores looking for new models that will afford protection in minor hurricanes. I selected this umbrella because it boasts a span of over 5 feet. No rain will ever reach the golfer who hides under this. It requires at least 2 very beefy caddies to hold it. When fully opened, it can be seen from space.

Drink Dispenser

Golfers drink liquids when they are out golfing. These liquids must be transported. A simple basic liquid containment device might be sufficient for a public golf course, but the truly expensive courses require that all supplemental golf equipment be disguised as actual golf gear. Your drinks have to come out of a thing that looks like a golf club.

Along with all the other stuff that is probably in a golf bag, this gizmo nestles next to your expensive golf clubs and provides novelty drinks through a dispenser that looks almost but not quite like a golf club head. Gatorade never tasted so good. Put your golf club-shaped glass under the golf club-shaped dispenser and squeeze the dispenser right where it would hit the golf ball if it were actually a real golf club. Your drink dispenses downward into your golf club-shaped glass.

      this hub is based on a really silly premise that you can sell things you know nothing about. Nicomp, I commend you (once again) for pushing the boundries of our limited awareness of what is possible.
