Pictured are some favorite items that most any golfer would appreciate. All are available locally.v JEAN HARRIS

This has been a crazy year for purchasing gifts for Christmas. Many of us have been buying presents online. Just on Cyber Monday, more than $11 billion was spent online.

This is an easy way to shop, but we also need to support our local businesses.

Most local stores have websites so you can still purchase online, or you can call in your order and someone will bring it to your car.

Bluffton has three awesome golf shops. The managers do a great job of stocking their stores. You can purchase most any item that the golfer needs.

Pro Golf Discount is locally owned and has great discount prices on clothes, ladies and junior gear. They have more than 8,000 pairs of shoes in stock. It is located in Tanger Outlets 2.

Edwin Watts is a chain store, but is locally managed and they have a great selection of sets of clubs, especially for women. They are located at 1 Buckingham Plantation Drive. (Mention you read about them in this article!)

The PGA Tour Superstore is the largest golf store in Bluffton. They are a locally managed chain store with an unbelievable stock of golf items. They are located at 1129 Fording Island Road. Please tell them Dr. Jean sent you.

Below are some smaller items I recommend that you can give to your favorite golfer:

• Sunglasses

• All-weather gloves

• Putter grips to make a putter feel like new

• Face masks with a golfer motif

• Range finders

• Golf watches

• Golf balls for all levels of golfers

• Visors and golf caps

• Daphne animal headcovers

• Ball markers

• Golf belts

• Golf ball markers

• Golf towels

• Golf biographies and instruction books

• Golf ball retriever

• A lesson from your favorite golf professional

Remember to shop locally as much as possible and help the Bluffton economy.
