Best Golf Gifts 2024 – all the inspiration you need to pick the perfect last-minute Christmas present

Knowing what gifts to buy for a golfer can be tough, luckily we’ve compiled a guide of all the best products you can purchase for the golfer in your life

Christmas is days away and the golfer in your life is just as difficult to buy for as they have been in previous years. However, this year your problems have been alleviated because we’ve put together a comprehensive guide of all the best golf gifts any golfer would appreciate receiving over the Christmas period.

Having previously worked in golf retail, I’ve seen the struggles non-golfers face when purchasing gifts for golfers. Trying to answer questions they don’t know the answers to, the shock of discovering golf balls can cost up to £50/$55, and racking their brains to remember whether the person they’re buying for likes Titleist or TaylorMade (or both).

Golfers can be extremely particular about the equipment they use, often you’re safest option is purchasing a pair of golf trousers, a thermal jacket, a pair of golf shoes, or any other piece of apparel or footwear. You could play it even safer by purchasing a gift voucher and letting them decide what to put the money towards themselves.

If you do choose to be slightly more adventurous with the golf gift you purchase, you can never go wrong with Titleist Pro V1 golf balls or a golf travel bag because both will always come in handy no matter who the golfer is.

You might have an idea in mind of what gift to buy for the golfer in your life, but whether you do or don’t, take inspiration from our extensive guide and give the present they can’t stop telling everyone about!

Best Golf Gifts 2024: Buying Guide

Trying to pick that perfect gift for a golfer can be one of the most stressful decisions for people who play golf themselves, so if you’re someone who doesn’t play, I really do feel for you! I want to make the gift-purchasing process as straightforward as possible and make sure you don’t buy something unnecessary or pointless. After all, nobody wants to be the person who bought the Christmas present for someone that they’ve never wanted and will never use/wear.

By following this guide to help you buy better this holiday season, you’ll absolutely nail the gift you give to the golfer in your life and you’ll be the talk of the town (okay… maybe a bit of a stretch)!

Don’t be scared to ask

It’s very unlikely that if you start asking a golfer about their brand preferences or if they need anything new their mind will go to “they’re thinking about Christmas gifts”. The vast majority of golfers will be glad that they can talk about golf and they’ll be happy that someone appears to be showing interest… Little do they know it’s all a scheme to figure out what golf gift to buy for Christmas.

If you’re wary of them catching on to what you’re doing, ask someone close to them or a playing partner – they’ll be just as happy to chat about golf!

There’s nothing wrong with buying someone something you know they like

There’s no denying that golfers are extremely particular about what equipment they play with, what golf balls they use, and what brands they wear. Rather than viewing this as a hindrance when buying golf gifts for Christmas, think of it as being incredibly helpful. I don’t know of any golfers who’d be annoyed to receive a dozen of their favorite golf balls or a polo shirt from their go-to brand.

Golfers love receiving golf gifts

There are certain items that every golfer needs, no matter how long they’ve been playing, their standard, or how often they play. Items such as gloves, golf balls, tees, etc. may seem trivial to some people but every golfer would definitely appreciate opening gifts containing particular necessities.

An item every golfer needs but not many tend to carry is a tool to keep their clubs clean during their round. It’s very easy to see if a golfer owns this already because it clips to the side of their bag. They aren’t expensive and they’re a brilliant stocking filler that’ll always come in handy!

If you’re unsure buy a gift card

Some people like to buy a gift rather than gifting money or even a gift card. However, some golfers will appreciate a gift card more than they would an item to open on Christmas Day. By electing to gift somebody a gift card it means that you don’t have to spend hours trawling through the internet or traipsing from store to store in search of a present you think they might want. Also, it gives the golfer you’re buying for the chance to put it towards something they really want or spend it on a bunch of smaller items they need for the season.

Best Golf Gifts 2024: FAQs

What do you get someone who likes golf for Christmas?

There are hundreds of gifts you can get for someone who likes golf, but finding the best option if you don’t know much about golf can be difficult. Every golfer has different preferences, needs, and wants which further complicates the matter. However, going for items that every golf requires is always a good option – items such as tees, balls, gloves, towels, etc.

What do you buy a golf fanatic?

Anything golf-related that you think they’ll enjoy. There aren’t many golfers who’d be unhappy receiving something for their golf game or golf-related. Hopefully, our comprehensive guide to golf gifts will give you all the inspiration you need to purchase the perfect golf gift for the golfer in your life.

What is a golf goody bag?

Not only is a golf goody bag a brilliant golf gift to give someone this Christmas, but it’s also a fantastic idea for all occasions where you’d be gifting a golfer a present of some sort. A golf goody bag typically includes all of the small necessities golfers need in order to play golf. Every golfer would be happy to open something like this over the holiday period.

How can I spend less money on golf gifts?

Golf can be a very expensive sport… but it doesn’t always have to be. If you’re looking for a golf gift for somebody this Christmas you don’t have to buy them a Ping G430 Driver or a set of Callaway Paradym Irons, most golfers would be overjoyed with a couple of gloves! As long as you gift a golfer something relevant to their game or something they need they’ll be over the moon no matter how much it costs!
