#1 - Golfing Gifts

When it comes to gifts for the guy who loves golf, there are an endless array of gadgets, clubs, and accessories available. If you know his specific needs, then you should certainly buy that club or golf bag that he has been dropping hints about for the last 3 months. However, most likely, you don't know exactly what he needs. If that is the case, then your best bet is either accessories, decorative items, orgolf gift baskets.

Golf magazines and golf books such as Dave Pelz's Short Game bible as well as desk accessories such as a mini putting green or photo frame are great ideas. Practice balls, a new golf towel, golf tees or water bottle make great stocking stuffers for the golf lover.

#2 - Billfold or Wallet

Men have a tendency to buy wallets when they are COMPLETELY worn out and falling apart. Last year, I gave both my father and husband Italian leather wallets and they absolutely LOVED them. If your man's wallet needs to be replaced, here are some of my favorites at Amazon for you to consider.

#3 - Gifts for the Sports Lover

The options for a sport lover are endless. Apparel showing off the logo of his favorite sports team, tickets to a game, a new basketball for his home court, or asports gift basketare just a few of the options.

#7 - Gifts for a Fisherman

Fishing poles, lures, and tackle boxes are just a few of the gift ideas for the fisherman in your life. And if he lives in a state like Wisconsin or Minnesota, perhaps he could use some winter ice fishing gear as well. Things like a portable fish house, a heater, and pop-up fishing gear are always a hit with anyone that ice fishes.
