Funny Golf Gifts for Men

golf gag giftsAre you looking for funny golf gifts for men? I live with the world’s best practical joker and a serious golfer too.

He loves adding funny golf gifts to his golf bag. His golf bag is full of silliness and fun!

You might think your guy is serious on the golf course, but believe me, these guys love a good laugh better than anybody.

This page is filled with his favorite golf gag gifts.

Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom. I think I have found a few gag gifts you have not seen yet.

PS  This photo is me pretending to hit a golf ball in hubby’s mouth.   Of course, I did not really try it, but the pose is so much fun for family photo albums.  You might want to try this yourself.  We also did it with him hitting the ball out of my mouth.   The grandchildren especially love those pics!

gifts female bossesIt’s fun to find gifts female bosses will appreciate. Just put your thinking cap on for a few minutes and remember things that she likes to do.

Have you seen the newest Amazon Echo Dot? This little electronic device will tell her the time, play her music, tell her what’s on her calendar for the day, the weather, the news, or even set a timer. If she loves electronics, this is definitely the thing to do for her.

If she has a personal secretary, take her secretary to lunch and pick her brains for great ideas. Believe me, she knows her boss better than anybody else.

If this is a group gift, gather everyone and ask for a list of things they know she likes. Perhaps one of the group is her golf partner, or another takes line dance lessons with her.  It’s fun to set a theme and have everybody buy gifts that fit the theme.  This is especially fun with new electronic gadgets if she is rather geeky.  New products arrive every day.  None of us can really keep up with them all.  Fill a basket with products she has never seen before!

The top gifts 5 year old girls enjoy include active outdoor toys and more complex indoor activities. She loves her doll, but now she wants a stroller,
a doll bed, a high chair, and clothes changes.

She still enjoys being outside, just like when she was 3 and 4, but now she is ready for more advanced riding toys and perhaps a small trampoline.  

Five year olds enjoy tents and hammocks, building toys like simple Legos and classic toys like Tinkertoys.

These are my top gifts for 5 year old girls – based on years of experience as a mom and a grandmama.

Little girls are generally easy to please and always fun to entertain.  Read the rest of this entry
