If you are shopping for a golfer, then luckily, your shopping is going to be a lot easier. Golfers are just too easy to shop for!
I've compiled several of my ideas with a few ideas from across the web. And, if all else fails, you can follow the Gift Guide for the Average Golfer from the Golf Stinks blog (LOL). But, seriously, one great point from that blog is to never get a beginner at golf any type of golf aid or gadget. Getting someone who is unexperienced any type of supposed "swing helper" is only going to confuse them more. So, here are some ideas that may help you complete your Christmas shopping early this year.
The Birdie Box
The Birdie Box is a monthly subscription to a box that includes all sorts of fun golf "things". There are all types of supscriptions that can include items ranging from golf balls and tech to magazines and shoes. You can even shop for tailored boxes just for women or men. This is more than likely a gift that would make more sense for an experienced golfer who enjoys getting all sorts of knick-knacks and will use most of them each month. Or, you can shop from their boxes that have a great mix of items for a one-time gift.
Subscriptions start at around $40+/month.

SKLZ Accelerator Pro Ball Returning Mat
One of my favorite tools to practice at home, the SKLZ Mat is a great gift for someone who never wants to put down their clubs. This mat is pretty easy to tuck away when not in use and is simply perfect for anyone who likes to work on their putting all the time. You can practice puts from 3, 5 and 7 feet and work on consistency, while at home. It's especially great for those who live in cold climates and can't get out to practice.
