Five Gift Ideas For Tennis Lovers

by Tammy May

Finding the perfect gift for the tennis enthusiast in your life takes a little bit of planning. Chances are you don't want to get them an overly obvious gift, like a racket or new balls, since you may not know what they prefer or want. Fortunately, there are a lot of other gift ideas that can be the perfect choice. The following are a few to inspire you.

Idea #1: Custom towel

The tennis towel is a classic gift that is useful for every player on the court. While there are plenty of options out there, the perfect towels set for a gift is one that has been personalized in some way. You can opt for monogrammed tennis towels or you can even have them screen printed with a full design that will appeal to your recipient.

Idea #2: A jewelry piece

Not all tennis gifts need to be for the court. For the gentlemen, tennis-themed cufflinks can be a fun but classy gift. You can purchase gold, silver, or even stainless tennis racquet or tennis ball cufflinks. For the ladies, nothing is more classic than a dainty tennis bracelet, although tennis charm bracelets are also a popular option.

Idea #3: Fitness tracker

Many tennis lovers are fitness buffs, so why not give them the means to track their workout on the court? There is a range of tracker styles available, from those that go around the wrist to those that clip onto a shoe or belt loop. Keep in mind your tennis-lover's fashion style, too. Not all trackers are made of sporty silicone, as you can also find them made to look like precious metals or actual jewelry.

Idea #4: Something quirky

There are lots of quirky tennis-themed gifts available. For example, a wreath made of tennis balls could be just the thing to adorn the recipient's front door. Another quirky offering is old racquets that have been fit with a chalkboard over the strings. These provide a lovely frame for a note board in the home.

Idea #5: Platters

If you prefer something heirloom quality, why not look into a tennis platter. You can buy tennis court platters online in a range of styles and designs. A fused glass platter that resembles an actual court is a quality piece that can be cherished for a long time either as décor or in functional use. Another option is a cut glass platters engraved with the designs from the famous competition courts of the world. For more information, contact Studio Margaret or a similar company.


About Me

Metal Sensitivity: Advice From a Jewelry Lover

Ever since I was a child, I've loved the look of fashion earrings. However, I soon discovered that my ears are sensitive to metal-coated earrings. Rather than spend a small fortune for custom made jewelry, I've found retailers that sell hypoallergenic earrings. These earrings are made for individuals such as myself with sensitivity to metals. Check your high-end department stores or local jeweler. You'll find hypoallergenic earrings in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold, and platinum. The main thing is to never choose jewelry containing nickle, as this is commonly the culprit. A good alternative to metals listed above is titanium jewelry, as this is considered to be hypoallergenic. Also, avoid using harsh detergents or chemicals to clean your earrings and jewelry, as this may cause further irritation. Mild dish soap may work well, but be sure to rinse your jewelry thoroughly.
