Buying gifts for someone who is a golf enthusiast can become redundant. You're friend or family member is sure to have plenty of common items such as tees, balls and club covers, so think outside the box and get creative. From humorous accessories to the golf experience of a lifetime, give the golfer in your life an unexpected gift he won't soon forget.

Novelty Items

Give a gift that will lighten a golfer's day, whether he is on the course or at home. One option is a pair of slippers that look like golfing shoes so your golfing friend can feel a bit like he is on the golf course at home. Another idea is to present your friend with golf balls that look like miniature basketballs and footballs. He's sure to get a laugh when he tees up one of these balls on the first hole. Speciality golf gifts can be found both in novelty stores and online.

Kitchen Accessories

For the golfing enthusiast who loves to be in the kitchen, give her a set of golf-themed kitchen towels and pot holders. Include a matching apron. Another kitchen-related gift idea is a set of golf-ball salt and pepper shakers, or a golf-themed set of canisters to hold things such as sugar and flour. For someone who loves to grill out, give a set of grilling utensils equipped with handles that look like golf club grips. For the golfer who likes to entertain, give him a chip bowl that looks like a golf ball along with a dip holder made to look like a golf tee.

Fantasy Golf Camp

The closest most golfers get to a lesson from a pro is watching a televised tournament from the comfort of their recliner on a Sunday afternoon. It will be expensive, but if you can swing it, send your golfing friend to a fantasy camp hosted by a PGA Tour professional. Such camps allow participants to spend several days learning from the pros. They usually include lodging, meals, entertainment, the use of professional golf clubs and gifts.

Golf Bar and Wine Accessories

For the golfer who likes to relax with a drink after a day on the course, give him an accessory that compliments a bar area he may have in his home. One such item is a wine holder in the form of golf clubs and a golf bag. Or give a set of wine stoppers shaped to look like golfer on a green. Other bottle stoppers and bottle openers have a golf-ball-shaped top. You can also give the gift of an ice bucket made to look like a golf bag, or beer mugs that are dimpled so that they resemble golf balls.
