Best golf gifts: 9 great stocking stuffers under $30

Happy holidays from, your one-stop shop when it comes to looking for gifts for the golfer in your life. (Or yourself. We won’t tell.) This year we’ve compiled the best of the best to make your shopping experience a breeze. Not only will we recommend our favorite products, we’ll tell you where to buy them. For more holiday gift ideas, visit our Best Of Everything hub, or browse GOLF’s Pro Shop.

Ah, the stocking stuffer, Christmas’ most malleable gift. Over the years, stocking stuffers have taken on many forms, from frightfully small gadgets and gizmos to dirt cheap deals of all sizes. So, what is a stocking stuffer?

By our definition, a stocking stuffer (in its current iteration) fits some mix of both characteristics. It is both small enough to fit in a reasonably large stocking and cost-efficient enough to come in around (or less than) $30.

This year, that means a stylish new hat, a brand-new tumbler (for the next time the halfway house is closed), and yes, even a pair of socks (beyond the meta gift-within-a-gift idea, good socks are the backbone of on-course success). Not to mention a whole other host of inexpensive ideas perfect for gifting the golfer in your life and fitting the carry-on needed to reach them. Here’s our picks.
