Best Christmas Gifts for Golfers

Published:

Want to buy a golf gift for your nearest and dearest this Christmas but don't know where to start? You've come to the right place.

Buying gifts for a golfer can be tricky, especially if you're not a golfer yourself. With so many different products to choose from, it's easy to buy the wrong thing. And given the cost of some golf equipment, that can be an expensive mistake. 

That's why we've compiled a list of the Best Christmas Gifts for Golfers. With prices starting at just £5.99, you're sure to find just the perfect present for the golf nut in your life.

Best Equipment to Buy for a Golfer

Buying equipment as a gift for a golfer isn't easy. There's an awful lot of choice, and that's before you get down to the endless options of different shafts, grips, custom fitting and customisation. 

Most golfers would prefer a voucher that enables them to get exactly what they rather than a well-intentioned but ultimately misguided gift. 

Retailers like American Golf and Scottsdale Golf are a great choice for a voucher as they stock pretty much every product a golfer could want.

Alternatively, if you know the golfer you're buying for tends to buy second-hand equipment, get him or her a voucher for Golfbidder, which offers the widest choice of used golf clubs and equipment. 

If you really want to give them something to unwrap and a voucher just won't cut it, make sure whatever equipment you buy can be returned or at least exchanged if it isn't quite right.

You can find our pick of 2020's best drivers, fairway woods hybrids, irons, wedges, putters, balls, rangefinders, GPS golf watches, electric trolleys and push trolleys here

Best Clothing to Buy for a Golfer

Buying clothing as a gift for a golfer is generally a much safer bet than buying them equipment.

A good waterproof jacket is a must for every golfer's bag, especially if they play all year round, and today's modern and stylish jackets look great off the course, too, making them even better value for money. Check our our favourites here.

A mid-layer golf jumper or sweatshirt, like the Ping Mellor below, is also a safe bet. Every golfer should have one, especially if they play through winter, and modern designs look great for day-to-day life, too. We've selected 30 of our favourites, starting at just £47.99 here.

If you're on a tighter budget or just looking for a stocking filler, a quality pair of golf socks will make the golfer in your life very happy. 

You can't go wrong with FootJoy socks; the FootJoy ProDry are available in crew, quarter and ankle lengths.

Best Shoes to Buy for a Golfer

If the golfer in your life normally comes home covered in mud, they may well want spiked shoes for the extra grip in slippery conditions. 

It's worth checking out our full list of the Best Spiked Golf Shoeswe've got options at every different price point – but the Under Armour HOVR Matchplay are a particularly strong option. They deliver excellent performance at a very competitive price point, with the huge bonus of a two-year waterproof guarantee.

If the golfer you're buying a gift for doesn't tend to slog through bad conditions regularly, spikeless shoes may be the way to go. Spikeless golf shoes have become the go-to choice for most golfers as they offer excellent year-round performance in a stylish and comfortable package. 

Again, we've got a full list of the Best Spikeless Golf Shoes, but our personal favourites are the adidas Tour360 XT-SL. They're comfortable, offer great grip and stability, and they looks great with shorts or trousers, making them suitable all year round.

Best Accessories to Buy for a Golfer

It may not seem like the most exciting present in the world, but no golfer will be disappointed to receive some quality golf tees or a top-notch golf glove. 

You can check out our lists of the Best Golf Tees and Best Golf Gloves, but the safest option is likely to be a pack of Pride Professional Golf Tees and a Cabretta leather glove. If you can peek in your recipient's golf bag to see what make glove they wear – and what size – then you're onto a surefire winner.
