Holiday Gift Guide: Deck the Fairways

Unless your name is Dustin Johnson, this year probably won’t go down as one of your favorites. It is safe to say that 2020 has been a long, strange trip, but it is almost over. We’ve made it this far (and golf is hotter than a golf ball off of Bryson Dechambeau’s driver), so why not celebrate with a holiday gift for yourself or that special golfer on your list.

Granted, this year has taught us that there are more important things than polyester polos, insulated vests, and hype kicks, but this is a golf fashion blog and we’re contractually obligated to drop a holiday gift guide. However, instead of compiling some PR-driven list of products, the GolfThreads Crew has decked the snow-covered fairways with fashionable jackets, shirts, pants, shoes, and accessories that are actually on our holiday gift lists.

Of course, if you have questions or need other recommendations, just drop a comment below and we’ll help.

All products are independently selected by GolfThreads’ Editors. When you buy a product through some of our links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

TRUE Linkswear Knit II

TRUE Linkswear released the Knit II last month and the timing could not be better. I have pretty much worn my original Knit completely out. They became my go-to shoe for, well….everything! The Knit II comes with an all new WANDERLUX super foam midsole and a full 360-degree sock fit stretch collar for added comfort and support. The design received a subtle modern makeover with premium suede accents and finishes that resulted in a refined, athleisure aesthetic that can be worn, well….everywhere!

‘Gaux Golf Kit

I consider myself a New England craft beer connoisseur. However, I’d like to refine my palate for wine. This golf-themed gift pack from Argaux seems like a good place to start! It includes a bottle(s) of 2019 Par For The Course New England Sauvignon Blac and everything else you need to get the par-tee started before, during, and after your round. Their Quarantine Edition of Blind Tasting Kits also seems like a lot of fun.

G/FORE Gallivanter

I have lots and lots of golf shoes. In fact, sometimes I feel like the Imelda Marcos of the fairway. With that being said, for some reason, I don’t have a pair of G/FORE Gallivanters in my collection. Hopefully, that will change this season.

johnnie-O Lammie Prep-Formance 1/4 Zip Pullover

One of the questions I get asked most often is, “what’s your favorite 1/4 zip?” Hands down it is the johnnie-O Lammie PREP-FORMANCE 1/4 Zip. I wear this for a brisk morning run, golfing, and running errands. It’s one of the most versatile pieces in my closet. In fact, I think it is time to add another color, or two, to my collection!

TravisMathew HEFE Flannel & LEGACY Denim

Take it from me, I know a thing or two about flannel and denim after spending seven years living in mid-coast Maine. Shockingly, my current favorites come not from L.L. Bean but Southern California’s very own TravisMathew. The HEFE is as soft and as stylish a flannel shirt as I have come across in quite a while. TM’s Legacy denim is super lightweight and stretchy. This pairing is so comfy-cozy, it could be worn as pajamas.

Bonobos Black Rosy Performance Golf Polo

The dark and moody Bonobos Black Rosy Performance Golf Polo is fittingly my favorite shirt of 2020.

Jones Sports Co. Scout Backpack – White Tarpaulin

So crisp looking yet rugged enough to travel – be it on a hike or a commute or to carry an extra layer for a late round of golf. The limited-edition is inspired by the streets of Tokyo with the white tarpaulin accented by a pop of red and black detailing.

Tag Heuer Connected Golf Watch

This one might be a stretch for Santa this year but it doesn’t mean we can’t still wish for one. The exclusive app offers a wide range of features on the watch and your smartphone so you can track your performance. But the best feature just might be the sporty and elegant looks of the timepiece that will impress even the most discerning stylish golfer. Right, Mr. Style?

Tory Sport Performance Merino Color-Block Pants & French Terry Crew

WFH never looked so good in these side striped comfortable wide-leg knit pants that also perform by providing warmth while wicking away moisture. Pair it with the cozy crew neck cotton sweatshirt in red that’s perfect for relaxing or post-workout. It also comes in three additional colors in case Santa has a difficult time deciding on just one. 

Chervo Partinico Sweatshirt

So much more than a hoody, this Pro-Therm full zip has stretchy melange jersey fabric with camo print nylon on the bodice and a faux fur lined hood to create a heightened level of sporty sophistication. The Aqua Drop fabric coating protects from the rain, and the brushed interior adds warmth while remaining lightweight and breathable. 

Linksoul Neck Gaiter

The neck gaiter is an easier approach to wearing a mask on the golf course because it’s more convenient just to pull it up vs fishing around for where you stashed your mask. It may not be medical grade, but it is made from the same cloud-soft material as Linksoul’s tee shirts that are very breathable – yay! The four-pack will make great stocking stuffers for your tribe. 

Kjus Ikala Treggings Warm

In our favorite fall color, intensive green, the 2-way stretch, water repellent, full-length, pull-on pant is brushed on the inside for added warmth and comfort in cold golf conditions. The anatomically shaped waistband creates a flattering fit that feels like you’re wearing leggings. The Ikala is also available in navy and black. 

G/FORE Killer T’s Mule

Ms. Claus will be totally styling on Christmas Eve wearing these classic mules as she’s tying up loose ends around the workshop. It’s also the perfect shoe for to/from the golf course featuring a waterproof full-grain leather upper with skull & T’s print. The interior is leather lined with a padded footbed for comfort. 

Lululemon Carry Onwards Travel Mat

We may not be traveling as much these days, but we have faith that brighter days are ahead in 2021. This innovative yoga mat is packable and fits easily into carry-on luggage or a backpack on the go practice/workout versatility. We also appreciate the natural rubber material is sustainably sourced and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified to support the protection of forest ecosystems.

Greyson Clothiers Amagansett 5-Pocket Pant

If Greyson’s Montauk Trousers are my favorite golf pants to wear off the course, then the brand’s Amagansett 5-pockets are my favorite everyday pants to wear on the course. I’ve been living in the Amagansett this fall. 98% cotton, 2% elastane, 4-way stretch; these are the best chinos I’ve found. They are comfy enough for the WFH era, yet sophisticated enough to wear to the office (whenever that may be). The only thing missing is more colorways in my closet.

Jones Sports Co. PNW Beanie

We know Jones cranks out some sick bags, but the company is sneaky good at producing some dope lids, too. I’ve been rockin’ a Jones Rope Hat the last few months, but it is time to move to something a bit cozier for the winter. The PNW Beanie has a lot more style and personality than other winter hats you’ll find. The PNW print was designed by Greyson Clothiers and is on-trend with all the fair isle patterns we are seeing this time of year. Plus, the cotton/wool blend is both soft and warm.

Solo Golf Hooded Vest

Although we’ve been all-in on hoodies for several years, Tyrrell Hatton’s recent win at the BMW PGA Championship pushed hoodies into the golf fashion spotlight. This, combined with our mantra that ‘every golfer needs a stylish and functional tech vest (or 10),’ brings us to Solo Golf’s Hooded Vest. Quite simply, this is the tech vest you never knew you needed, but you’ll wonder how you ever survived without it. The water-repellent DWR outer shell, moisture-wicking mid-layer, and micro-fleece liner will carry you from the cold winter months to spring’s unpredictable showers. Get your pre-order in. The first round of these sold out in a blink of an eye.

Greyson Herringbone Gaiter

Why? Because you care about style and it is 2020. Enough said. Grab Greyson’s Herringbone Gaiter.

Galvin Green Duke Insula Pullover

We’ve been riding hard for Galvin Green’s mid-layers this fall. Now, with colder temps hitting, I could use a bit more heat without the added bulk. Enter the Duke Insula Pullover. Quilted padding and Insula fabric add warmth and trap heat while maintaining flexibility.

Asher Golf Fall Collection Box

If you follow along on social media, you know that I’m usually slipping on an Asher glove for most rounds. The Moss, Navy, and Sandstone colorways are perfect for winter. As if the AAA premium Cabretta-leather wasn’t luxurious enough, the tonal suede patches add another element of sophistication. Normally, I’d say gloves make great stocking stuffers, but Asher’s Fall Collection Box deserves a prime spot under the tree.
