For the past few weeks, the Olympics have rightfully been the epicenter of the sports world. But when the calendar page turned, we entered a very important month in the sports world. August is National Golf Month!

In the gift world, we see lots of people looking for great gifts for golfers. While there are tons of golf gift options out there, there’s one tiny bit of golf gifting advice we should pass along:

TIP: When getting a gift for the golfer, try and steer clear from golf equipment. Unless a very specific piece of golf equipment has been requested for as a gift, stay away from from golf equipment.  You should be thinking along the lines of golf-themed decor, apparel and accessories.

In general though, there are so many golf gifts, that’s easy to find one that will suit his or her style and golf needs. Here are some golf gifts worth checking out:

The golfer will lose their mind- in a good way – over the custom golfer bobblehead. Created from actual photos the gift giver supplies and with full design customization, the golf bobblehead is a golf gift that certainly brings its “A-Game”.

The Trunk-It Golf Gear Case is a golf gift that will get used immediately. A golfer’s trunk is easily recognizable by all the loose gear, old score cards, and acres of old dirt and grass clippings. This case will tidy up and organize any golfer’s car trunk.

The Tin Cup Ball Marking System is a fun golf accessory golfer’s will love. Basically the Tin Cup is a stencil that allows golfers to custom ball mark their golf balls. With tons of stencils to choose from, golfers can use different colored Sharpie pens to truly create on-of-a-kind golf balls.

Golfer’s passion for the game extends well beyond the courses themselves. A great gift idea for the 24/7 golfer is a big, colorful coffee table book on golf!

Shoes are a tricky gift. But a trend worth noting in the golf apparel category is that golf shoes are taking on some styles that once reserved for everywhere but the golf course. Whether it’s the iconic style of the adidas Samba shoe, or the street cred that comes with Nike’s Dunk shoe, or even the casual sporty look of the Street shoe from Ecco, these great looks will certainly go noticed on the course.

For many golfers, the 19th hole is as important as the previous 18. Golf-themed barware as a golf gift is pretty much the gifting equivalent of a long drive right down the middle of the fairway!

Finally, while there is plenty of warm weather still to be had, golfers should prepare for Fall golf. The Fashion Performance Full-Zip 3-Stripes Jacket from adidas is combines a great look with plenty of comfort and performance for the golfer as temps start to dip.

Happy Golf Month everyone!
