Christmas Present

    Looking for a Christmas present for my father. He's around the 60 mark. Plays off 18 I think. Looking for something for less than €100.

    Any suggestions? Badly stuck. Got him a GPS watch last year and he was delighted with it. Used it the whole time since. Has loads of golf clothes already and plays a lot of golf courses in Munster region so a round or clothes aren't really an option.

    Appreciate any suggestions.

  • A few lessons?




  • Adidas Tour 360 Boost shoes should be in and around the €100 mark.

    Treating myself to a pair soon.




  • I usually get my dad some under armour shirts from a UK company on ebay which are usually only around 40 euro, so I'd supplement that with a box of Pro-V 1s.




  • Cheers lads.

    Gives me something to work with anyway.

    If you don't know exactly what to get him, then buy him a voucher for a golf shop and he can get exactly what he wants.
    I know some people call that the lazy option, but personally I think it's more thoughtful than getting a useless gift that will never be used and can be a pain in the hole to exchange etc.

    Good for you, they look sh!te under the tree though :p




  • I wanted a present this year that was way more expensive than what I expected my parents/gf to buy me so american golf vouchers worked a treat.

    Eh, put them in a bigger package/box if that works better for you:pac:.

    Speaking from experience, on some occasions in the past when I have received golf gifts, the person buying the gift may find it stressful to buy a useful and meaningful gift.
    So I can't think of a better gift to give than a voucher for the recipients favorite passion, it's a win/win situation, it's hassle free for both parties, plus it eliminates that awkward forced "thanks" when receiving a gift you know you're going to exchange and the future problem scenario when the person who gives the gift repeatedly asks how you like the gift.

    All of the above is under the proviso that the buyer means well and doesn't know for sure what the receiving person needs or wants, but still cares enough to give a gift.

    A bleed'n tenner, that's way too much for SS, a scratch card for a euro will do.
