We’ve rounded up the best gift ideas for golfers and sorted them into three categories (Gear, Just For Fun, and Stocking Stuffers) to help you with your holiday shopping this year.
1. Rawhide Head Covers
Rawhide is a Canadian company based out of Vancouver, BC. They make custom leather headcovers. The process is simple and starts with an email sharing your idea, inspiration, image, or logo.
These head covers are not only unique, but they are also high quality and made from genuine leather. Pricing ranges from $75 to $155 depending on the design.
Some ideas include creating a head cover inspired by the recipient’s pet, customizing it with the recipient’s name or a fun phrase, or placing a logo on them for corporate or organization gifts.
Here are some of Rawhide’s previous designs:
