With Thanksgiving firmly in the rearview mirror, the holiday shopping season is about to hit peak velocity. In order to help you get ready, we'd like to present GoBowling.com's "Ultimate Bowling Gift Guide."
Bowling for Babies
If you're the parent of a toddler who has managed to steer clear of Santa's naughty list, why not reward her with a plastic bowling set? Major toy manufacturers such as Little Tikes and Melissa & Doug offer sets of plastic pins and balls that can be set up and knocked down in the comfort of your own living room. Not only are these gifts a huge hit with toddlers, they also help instill an early love of the sport. Price: about $20.
If you're a casual bowler who would like to improve your skills -- or know someone who fits that description -- consider paying for a series of bowling lessons as a holiday gift. Professional instruction is an excellent way to better your score quickly -- and what bowler wouldn't love that? If you can't find a teacher in your area, consider buying high-end instructional videos online. Price: variable.
The Ultimate Bowling Movie Stocking Stuffer
If you know a bowling fan who is also a cinephile, why not put together a stocking stuffer filled with some of the greatest bowling films of all time? "The Big Lebowski," "Kingpin" and "The Flintstones" all feature bowling prominently -- and should provide hours of riotous entertainment. Price: about $30.
Custom Bowling Shirts
It's not just how well you bowl -- it's how good you look doing it. So why not spring for a brand new custom bowling shirt as a holiday gift for the recreational league bowler in your life. A variety of online retailers sell custom shirts in all the classic styles (polos, vintage, the "Charlie Harper etc.), so this is one gift that's almost guaranteed to be a hit. Price: $25-$40.
