Every year we field a number of questions about gifts for significant disc golf others, and we’ve seen may already. One of the differences over the past couple years is that there are many more new and unique items available for thoughtful and personal disc golf gifts. Here is our 2017 disc golf gift buying guide, all personally tested by the Disc Golf Puttheads and highly recommended.
Discs are never a bad idea and are easily found, but when giving a disc as a holiday present you usually want something special. This year the holiday edition stamps have been quite popular. The are some crazy and in style stamps, or you if you prefer simple like me there are options like Innova’s Holiday Firestorm which is also a new mold.
Here are a few other holiday edition discs.
Custom Mini Disc Marker
Mini markers have become quite popular and there are all sorts of custom minis available. You can find metal minis, wood minis, super color minis, or you could even get a custom engraved Nak Mini Disc Golf Marker. Many brands have also introduced macro minis which are 6 inch versions of your favorite molds that you can throw! Here’s our experience with a Discraft macro mini round.
We’ve tested many types of gloves and Friction gloves have been our choice of disc golf gloves for cold weather. Rodney wears his Friction gloves during every cold round. You can check out our Friction Gloves review, or order a pair of Friction Gloves here!
Discs and Zen
Hopefully you’ve read the first book by Patrick McCormick, Zen and the Art of Disc Golf. Discs and Zen is his follow up and comes highly recommended by the DG Puttheads. You can find your copy of Discs and Zen here.

But you’re looking for disc golf gifts right? Well, an Ultimate disc such as a Discraft Ultra-Star is an inexpensive gift that any disc golfer could use pool-side in the summer or at the course killing time for his or her friends to show up for the round. It’s also great practice throwing a different style disc, helps with those finesse lines!
