During my travels this year, I’ve been talking to the ladies about how they feel about those special days - birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day - and what sort of gifts they would like to receive. Now, I always thought that the women in my world had some fairly important "days in the life," but I didn’t realize just how important they really are (I once made the mistake of asking my wife what she would like for Christmas and then taking her answer, “nothing,” at face value. Never have I been in quite so much trouble). The following is a list of just a few of the products mentioned by the ladies with some enthusiasm:
Sundog Eyewear Paula Creamer Collection
The Sundog Eyewear PC Collection offers Paula Creamer's three most popular styles including: a refined fitting Allure (the model Paula wore winning the U.S. Open Championship); the stylish Iconic with laser etched temple artistry; and Captiva, uniquely designed sunglasses for smaller face shapes.

ECCO Golf Shoes For Women
Not surprisingly, golf shoes came top of the list of the goodies that most golfing ladies would like to receive on Mother’s Day. I chose ECCO for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that I own a pair myself and can personally recommend them. I did, however, offer the ladies a choice of several brands. ECCO was the one that garnered the most votes.
ECCO has long been known for its exclusive direct-injection technology, high-grade leathers, flexibility, durability and, of course, comfort. And comfort is, without doubt, the best recommendation for ECCO's women’s golf shoes. Not only do they offer excellent arch support, the soles themselves have been designed for traction and balance.
The ECCO brand offers a wide range of both traditional and contemporary, all-weather designs. Each pair of ECCO golf shoes passes through more than 225 pairs of highly-skilled hands during a labor-intensive production process. In the field, they are worn by many international stars, including Juli Inkster, Carin Koch, Laura Davies Fred Couples, Stuart Appleby, Aaron Baddeley, Colin Montgomerie, and Iben Tinning.
Ok, so what’s the catch? Well, they do tend to be a little on the expensive side: between $110 and $200. Yes, you can find less expensive women's golf shoes but, as we all know, you usually get exactly what you pay for, and I never did like to take chances with cheap shoes. And, if you’re looking for a gift that’s practical, attractive and comfortable, a pair of ECCO Women’s Golf Shoes would certainly fit the bill.
Women’s Stockholm Knit Sweater from Fila Golf
For the lady golfer this Stockholm Knit sweater from Fila Golf features a rib “V” neck, long sleeves with stripe finish, rib cuffs and hem, F-box patch logo sewn on bottom right front hem. It’s a slim fit sweater, very stylish and comes in three colors: white (above), navy and black; and comes in sizes XS through 2XL (women’s), and would make a great cold weather gift. The fabric content: 50% Cotton / 50% Acrylic. The cost is $90 and you can get yours at the Fila Golf website.
Golf Trunk Organizer
Golf Trunk Organizer Corrals and Protects Your Gear.
What a mess, 500 tees everywhere. Good to see my four-dozen Pro V1's rolling around. Whoops, there's only one shoe back here, and where is my sun block? Did you ever roll into the parking with this scene unfolding The Golf Trunk Organizer can easily organize this messy situation by providing a golf locker for your car. Special adjustable compartments can hold shoes, over two-dozen balls, tees, spikes, a towel and more. The zip-top cover keeps everything protected and allows for easy portability.
Obviously designed by avid golfers, other clever touches include a reinforced rubber handle and a breathable mesh area over the shoe compartment to allow moisture to escape. Durable nylon construction. The case stores flat conveniently in your trunk. The compartments are adjustable. Looking good slick! (6"H x 19"W x 15"D). A thoughtful gift for any golfer. Oh, and yes, it won't cost you an arm and a leg. You can get one for just $39.95. They come in red, black or grey.
