The winter season may bring a lull in a golfer's life, but that doesn't mean you need to stop preparing for the new season in spring. Purchasing golf apparel around Christmas can make a great gift for the golfer in your life. Instead of just giving the gifts in bags or traditional wrapping paper, you can put a little extra effort into each gift. The following types of gift packaging can work with all types of apparel and accessories like golf shoes.
A Box of Balls
An easy way to add to your gift is by purchasing some golf balls to use on a course. Instead of leaving them in the original packaging, you can give a box of balls. Using a shoe box or other smaller box, place down a layer of golf balls to cover the bottom. Lay the golf apparel over the bottom layer of balls and then add more balls until the apparel is completely covered.
As the person opens the present, they will dig through the balls to discover the gift hidden inside. This is nice little extra surprise that will add a special touch to the holiday occasion. If you're on a budget, consider purchasing a collection of used golf balls for the gift design. This will help you purchase larger quantities and have a lot of balls to hide the golfing gifts under.
The Golfing Sock Stocking
Instead of hanging up a traditional stocking, you can replace it with a new golfing sock. Golfing socks are great gifts for covering special clubs, but they can also be used to fill with some golfing gifts. A golf stocking is large and deep enough to store golfing socks, a rolled up t-shirt, or small accessories like tees and balls.
You have the option of using a current golf sock or purchase a new one for an additional gift on the Christmas holiday. New designs can even feature holiday characters like Santa Claus or a Reindeer. The stuffed character heads usually go over the head of a golf club.
The Outfit Ornament
On Christmas morning, you can add an new ornament to the tree that represents the golfing outfit you purchase. By using some basic craft skills, it's easy to plan the fun gift that will really surprise the loved one in your life.
The first step is to take and print out images of all the golf apparel you purchased. Then print out an image of the person you are giving the gift to. By cutting out the apparel pictures, you can paste them on the picture of the person like they are wearing them.
Once everything is put together, you can hang the creation on the Christmas tree. On Christmas morning, the person can discover the new ornament and then you can present them with the actual clothing gifts.
Novelty Wrapping Paper
Instead of using traditional Christmas wrapping paper, you can stick with the theme of golf for your wrapping paper designs. Regular golf theme designs include course maps, ball collages, and phrases like "I Love Golf."
Some specialty Christmas wrapping paper includes Santa Claus golfing or golf balls mixed with Christmas colors. Adding the wrapping paper helps create a special touch to the gift that you give.
If you're short on time, then you have the ability to print out your own wrapping paper. By following tutorials and looking through different designs, you can print out all sizes of golfing wrapping paper. By using a thin printer paper, you can create the same texture to real wrapping paper and have a lot of custom options.
By putting in a little extra effort, you can go a long way in providing memorable Christmas gifts. Add extra things like golfing tags and stickers to make the gifts as special as possible. Always consider the size of the gift before planning the packaging. If the gift is too large for your packaging design, the effect of the gift giving will not be as satisfactory.
