2018 Gifts for Golfers: Last-Minute Gift Ideas

Best in Golf

The holiday season always flies by faster than expected. Christmas is less than a week away, but there is still time to pick up some last-minute gifts for golfers on your list. Check out these golf gift ideas that will arrive by December 24.

Keep in mind that the USPS deadline for first-class and priority mail service is Thursday, December 20 and the 22nd for priority express service. December 20 is also the cutoff for UPS 2nd day air service. FedEx’s last day for Express shipments to be delivered by Christmas is December 18. If you’re more the Amazon type, you can order with standard shipping up until the 18th.

Prime members have until December 22 for free two-day shipping. The site also advertises free one-day shipping for prime members so that you can order up until Sunday, December 23 or even same-day delivery on the 24th, but that might be cutting it close for even the most last-minute shoppers.

Specialty golf shops typically have a strict cut off for holiday shipping about 10 days prior to the big day, but Seamus understands the last-minute nature the majority of us have. The company is guaranteeing UPS Air services to deliver items by 12/24. USPS orders are not guaranteed, but you’ll have a better chance the sooner you shop. Ball marks or bag tags can be purchased up until 12/21 at 3pm EST. Headcovers take a little more time, so you’ll only have until 12/18 and will have to pay a production rush fee.

Electric Eyewear
