Hats and earbuds and video games, oh my!

What to get for the golfer who has everything this holiday season? Why, I’m so glad you asked.
As a matter of fact, through some remarkable consequence of good fortune, I am the golfer who has everything. In the last 12 months, I’ve traveled around the world, seen (and played) incredible golf courses, and sufficiently experienced life as one of the luckiest idiots alive. I have my own clubs, my own sense of golf style, my own trinkets and gadgets and gizmos and about a zillion tees, give or take a few.
As such, buying golf-related gifts for me is a task that ranges somewhere between impossible and outright insane. And that, dear reader, is precisely why I’ve collected the list below of stocking stuffers perfect for all golfers. These are the gifts that golfers want, even if they’re too scared to admit it. The gifts they need. And also, the gifts they’re excited to receive.
True to name, we put in our best effort to make these stocking stuffers are not only small in size, but also in price (with a few exceptions we just couldn’t leave out!).
All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy a linked product, GOLF.COM may earn a fee. Pricing may vary.

Life-changing (or saving) socks
In July, I walked 90 holes in 100-degree heat with three coworkers. I’m certain the Bombas socks I changed into with each round was the only reason I survived. There is no product on earth like these socks. Buy a pair and prepare to have your mind blown.
Elite socks made for every activity, Bombas are one of life’s little luxuries, and goodness, are they great. Uber-comfortable, sweat-wicking and loaded with cushioning, you’ll never want to wear anything else.
Your new favorite hat (from your favorite golf brand!)
GOLF Rainbow “GOLF” Hat
We took our classic “GOLF” logo, flipped it upside down and made it rainbow. This dad-cap style is cool and trendy on or off the course. This hat is sold exclusively here on GOLF.com and is available in a super limited quantity — if it speaks to you, you’ll want to act quickly because it’ll likely sell out soon and there’s no promise we’ll ever bring it back.
Sunscreen is perhaps the most overlooked item in a golfer’s arsenal. That is, until they get stuck outside without it and wind up wearing second-degree burns across their arms, face and neck. Don’t let the golfer in your life be that person.
Reef-safe, SPF 50 and super-high quality for all skin types, if you care about your epidermis, you’ll love what you find in Supergoop. Bonus points: the sport version is waterproof!
Golden Bear: Golden Hat
Nicklaus Rope Hat: Limited Edition (WHITE)

This hat is sold exclusively here on GOLF.com and is available in a super limited quantity — if it speaks to you, you’ll want to act quickly because it’ll likely sell out soon and there’s no promise we’ll ever bring it back.
This snapback hat is one size fits all.
A beanie for every winter round

His new favorite polo
Greyson Standing Eagle
The Greyson’s Standing Eagle polo is packed with performance benefits. It offers a no fade finish to keep you looking fresh, an antimicrobial finish to keep you smelling fresh, UV protection to keep the skin safe from harmful sunrays, moisture management to keep you dry when sweating occurs, and stretch to keep you comfortable and moving with ease. Any questions?
Never go thirsty again
Perhaps you, like most of the waking world, received a Yeti of some kind as a stocking stuffer for the holidays one of the last two years. If you didn’t, what are you waiting for!?! Now’s the year. Yetis are seriously cold, seriously durable, and seriously convenient for sneaking out on the course with a road bevy. We can’t recommend in high enough terms.
YETI Rambler 14 oz with Magslider Lid
The YETI Rambler 14 oz. Mug is the most untraditional mugs on the market. Unlike traditional mugs, this double-wall vacuum-insulated body protects hands from hot or cold contents while keeping coffee, chili, oatmeal –you name it –well-insulated. All Rambler Drinkware are dishwasher safe making them easy to clean. The mug’s wide opening means contents are easily accessible, but will cool quicker. That’s why the mug comes with the MagSlider Lid, it adds an additional barrier of protection to prevent heat or cold from escaping, but please note —the magnet component is not leakproof and will not prevent spills. Important: Do not place mug over external heat source or open flame. Vacuum seal or other damage may occur.
And finally, a way to spend the hours OFF the course
PGA Tour 2K21
Sure, it’s been out for a minute, but 2K hasn’t stopped making additions to the game ever since it was released last year. For those who can’t get enough time on the course, there’s nothing better than adding a video game to the mix.
