It’s difficult to shop for gifts in general – especially if you want to get gifts that are truly memorable and deeply appreciated. It’s the need to get to know someone in a very personal way that many of you don’t really have the luxury off especially when you’re really busy. For the bowler in your life, however, it isn’t too hard a task as it would seem especially if they’re particularly committed to the sport or addicted to it as a hobby. That’s because there are so many gifts for bowlers out there that you can give to your loved one.

1. Bowling ball bags. This gift is one of the most practical gifts you can give and there is so much you can do to make it very personal and customized for the person that you are getting it for. For one thing, a bowling ball tends to be sacred to bowlers. You do have to make sure that the bag is fit to their ball’s specific size and specifications. That’s the most important consideration above any other. Other than that, you have free reign over the color and can even do embroidery of their names if you want to make it even more personal.

2. Keychains. If you must get keychains, do avoid the temptation to get those clear plastic ones with a painted design sandwiched in between. They’re slightly gaudy-looking and tend to convey a certain degree of cheapness. When we talk about quality keychains as gifts for bowlers, we’re referring to the die-cast metal ones that come in the shape of shiny, metallic bowling balls or pins. Those, in contrast, are elegant and will be likely shown off by the recipient as a badge of honor of sorts and stand a good chance of being used for their most important keys .

3. Plush toys and pillows. Surprisingly, these are also popular bowling gifts as they make a nice addition in a bowler’s car or living room. They’re also functional to a degree, too, and help to add that bowling theme to any room, really. It all ties in with the sense of identification that these particular kinds of gifts bring – allowing bowlers to show off their passions without being too particularly blatant or serious about things. Best of all, they come in all shapes and sizes and sometimes even constitute an elegant and simple set that you can bring together piece by piece if so inclined. There are many more out there if you look hard enough. You can even go for t-shirts with a sense of humor, but the gifts for bowlers listed above go for either the practical or the altogether creative.
