Every year at Infinite Discs we try to put together a unique, fun list of gift ideas for disc golfers. Let’s take a look at the 2019 holiday ideas that we feel would please any disc golfer…the 2019 Disc Golf Gifts guide!
Of course, no disc golf will turn down more discs for the holidays. But where do you start if you don’t know which specific discs they need in their bag? You might as well get something that is fun to throw and collectible, or that shares a little holiday spirit. That way, whether they throw it, or keep it as a memento, they’ll be happy. Here are a few holiday discs you might consider:
PROFESSIONAL SIGNATURE DISCS — One of the fun gift ideas for any disc collector or player is a signature edition of a popular disc. A signature edition is a disc with the signature and endorsement of a professional player. Pretty much any major disc brand has sponsored professional players who will have special edition stamps and plastics run just for them.
HOLIDAY EDITION DISCS — Several different disc manufactures make holiday edition discs. If your disc golfer prefers more of a spooky edge, we have a lot of discs that were released as Halloween discs. Or, if you want a more traditional “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” style, we usually have a few of those as well. But if you want a stamp with a little more edge, you may want to check out the selection of “SANTA CLAWS” stamped discs for 2019.
You can BROWSE THE HOLIDAY SELECTION HERE and filter by brand or disc type to find exactly what you like among the holiday editions.

DISC DEALS BOXES — Every year, without fail, one of the most popular gift purchases from Infinite Discs the Infinite Deals Box. These are 7-disc package sets with a variety of different disc models from different brands, including stock stamps, tournament stamps, misprints, and more. It is a great value and an adventurous way to give a pile of discs to a player so that they can try them out and possibly find some new favorites! We have four different Deals Box sizes to choose from:
- 5-Disc Deals Box Jr
- 7-Disc Deals Box
- 12-Disc Deals Box XL
- 15-Disc Deals Box Extreme with Large Disc Carry Bag
This year we’ve also added a couple of other package sets, including the 5-Disc Bargain Box which features a selection of discs in base plastic for the shopper on a budget. Perhaps you’re just introducing a friend to disc golf and you want to give them a variety of discs to try without spending a lot of money, then the 5-Disc Bargain Box is for you. Or, for the very basics, we also have a very affordable Infinite Starter Set with a putter, mid-range, and driver in easy-to-throw, lighter weights for beginners.
MYTH 10-DISC PUTTER PACK — We also have a selection available of 10-Disc MYTH Putter packs. The MYTH is a slick, beaded putter by Infinite Discs, and we’ve had so many customers ask for bulk packs of putters that we made these as a way for people to get a lot of practice putters for a very low price. Why do disc golfers need so many putters? Because putting is one of the most important parts of the game, and it is easier to practice when you’ve got a big pile by your side.
TOMB 10-DISC PUTTER PACK — While the Tomb is well known as an approach disc that can be used either to putt or as a mid-range stand-in, we’ve had a lot of player requests for a 10-pack. It is becoming more popular as a putter to attack the basket, so this pack makes a great gift for those who want to get some practice time in, or to share with friends.
Maybe you have a crazy sense of humor and want to give somebody a disc that makes a statement about how long they take to find their errant throws? Or maybe you just have a sadistic streak? We’ve got a fun option for you too with an autumn leaf camouflage disc. These are available on the popular EMac TRUTH mid-range disc or the RAIDER distance driver (click on “Select Your Disc” to browse for the autumn leaf print).
Infinite Discs has the largest selection of custom stamps on a huge variety of disc brands. Whether you’re looking for a “tough guy” image (see the GREAT BEARD series for example) or something humorous (see the PIG STAMPS for an example) or a version of the popular Infinite Discs Bomber, or something with more of a focus on artistic simplicity (see the STORM stamp as an example), we’ve got something for you, or for your favorite disc golfer!
LARGE GIFT ITEMS
If you want to impress your disc golfer for the holidays, hit them with a big ticket item that they will love but might not have felt ready to purchase on their own. Here are a few ideas:
ROVIC DISC GOLF CART — One of the newest disc golf carts this year is the ROVIC RV1D which was altered by a golf cart company to handle the demands and needs of disc golfers. It puts the disc golfer’s backpack on wheels and provides extra storage space for additional accessories. It also folds into a more compact size for storage and transport to the disc golf course. It comes in a few color combinations.
ZUCA ALL TERRAIN CART — One of the most popular disc golf carts for the frequent disc golfer is the Zuca cart which is built to carry a maximum quantity of discs, provides a place to sit during long rounds, and carries a variety of accessories. There are also many other features which can be added to the Zuca cart, like padded seat cushions, more drink holders, putter pouches, and more. There are color combinations available for any taste.
MVP ROVER CART — Maybe you don’t want to spend two or three hundred dollars and your disc golfer already has a backpack that he or she likes. You can simply grab them the new MVP ROVER CART to essentially give their backpack a set of wheels so it can be pushed or pulled around the course with ease. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles with this option, but it gets the job done.
PORTABLE PRACTICE BASKETS — Any disc golfer would be utterly impressed with a new portable disc golf practice basket. There are a wide variety of baskets available on the market by a lot of different manufacturers, all with the intent to provide an easy way for players to practice in their yard, set up small courses, or take with them on camping trips, etc. Here are some of the newest and most popular options:
Black Hole Pro with Transit Bag — The Black Hole Pro is a very popular practice basket by MVP and this year they’ve added a Transit Bag as an easy way to carry the broken-down basket from place to place.
Discraft Chainstar Lite — This is one of the newer portable baskets that is high quality with a few different color options to choose from. For your $150 range, this is one of the best options.
Mach Shift 3-in-1 Portable Basket — This new basket offering from DGA is unique because it can be changed from a standard size that has double-layered chains, to a narrow putting practice basket, to a macro-basket for an even smaller target. For those who want to spend a little more for a variety of configurations, it is the perfect choice. AND IT IS DISCOUNTED UNTIL THE END OF 2019!
DGA Mach Lite — This is our favorite and by far the best-selling collapsible basket. It is easily folded and transported inside a shoulder carry case, yet is very sturdy and well constructed. This year it was released in orange and green as new color options. AND IT IS DISCOUNTED UNTIL THE END OF 2019!
HYZER DISC RACK — Maybe you’re looking for a way for your disc addict to store their copious amounts of discs. You can help them keep their extra discs or collection organized with the new Hyzer Disc Rack. Think about it… you’ll be helping your disc golfer stay organized while also keeping your own domain a little less cluttered with discs. It’s a win win!
There are a couple of different designs available, including one with the Hyzer Disc Rack branding and another with Infinite Discs logos and branding. The shelf is very easy to build without tools and is designed especially for discs while also including extra hooks on the front for hanging towels and bag tags. The top shelf holds a bag or trophies for display. While this is an item that might be a little bit outside of the casual disc golf budget, it definitely stands out as an impressive gift for the holiday season.
One of the more popular high-end products on the Infinite Discs website are the Adidas Terrex shoes. These are lightweight, but sturdy outdoor shoes that were designed for handling all kinds of terrain, whether mountainous or groomed parks. They are also able to handle a lot of side-to-side torque that is inflicted upon the shoes of disc golfers when throwing discs at high speeds. The soles are high quality and very long-lasting, plus you can get the most popular models with GTX for extra waterproofing against rain or dew-covered grass so your feet don’t get wet. We’ve selected what we believe are the best shoes for disc golfers from the huge Terrex line.
AX3 — one of the most popular and least expensive options available right now
AX3 GTX — the waterproof version of the popular AX2R
SWIFT R2 — a higher-end shoe that pro disc golfers have loved
SWIFT R2 GTX — the waterproof version of the awesome Swift R2
SKYCHASER LT GTX — this is the highest quality shoe we carry, with a long-lasting construction, waterproofing, and “boost” technology for extreme comfort when worn for long periods
AGRAVIC SPEED — the most lightweight option for fast movers and travel light but want comfort
NOTE: Not all shoe colors and sizes are available. Our selection is somewhat limited after the summertime rush.
LARGER PACKAGE DEALS
We also have a couple of larger package deals that you might enjoy for yourself, or as a gift for another important disc golfer in your life. The Extreme Deals Box comes with a large bag to carry the 15 mystery discs that are included in the box. That’s about $10 per disc plus a free large bag!
Or there is a great Complete Disc Golf Set available with the Infinite Discs brand on Amazon.com which would be a welcome gift to new players who want a real boost to get them going:
We also have a set of 8 Infinite Discs branded discs that you can grab if you only need the discs without the accompanying bag. It’s also a great choice for yourself or as a gift.
One of the most exciting things you can give to any hard-core disc golfer or disc collector is a one-year membership in the Infinite Discs VIP Club. That way, the disc golfer you love will receive a unique, collectible disc every month, automatically, as well as discounts on the Infinite Discs website and access to exclusive releases in the VIP Club Store.
SIGN UP FOR THE MEMBERSHIP HERE (select the pre-paid annual option, or pay month-to-month for as long as you want)
MID-RANGE BUDGET ITEMS
Maybe you don’t have a huge budget, but you want to get your favorite disc golfer something nice that is under $100. Here are a few fun ideas that will fit the bill…
INFINITE DISC SLINGER BAG — The Infinite Disc Slinger is designed for affordability, ease, and comfort for quick disc golf rounds. It provides a quality bag option for beginners as well as experienced players who simply want to grab a dozen discs and hit the course. This is the perfect crossover between traditional shoulder bags and backpacks. You can throw it over your shoulder (the strap can be adjusted for whichever shoulder you prefer), carried in your hand, or slung across your body like popular sling bags. It is available in black or blue.
LARGE SELECTION OF APPAREL — Whether you’re looking for t-shirts, or sweatshirts, or jackets, or hats, there is a huge selection of apparel options from many brands on the Infinite Discs website. These choices fit any taste of budget. Check out those apparel options HERE
GRIP6 BELTS — One of the hottest new apparel items for disc golfers this year has been the Grip6 line of belts. These are long-lasting, flexible belts that provide comfort as well as dependability. They are designed to last a lifetime. They come in several colors with different style buckles. You can pick a specific waist size, or you can select the “own size” option where an extra long belt can be cut and prepped for your own, specific size.
M-RETRIEVER — Disc Retrievers have always been a good gift idea because pretty much every serious disc golf plays near water or trees and needs a way to get back the discs that have flown astray. The M-Retriever is one of the newest options on the market with a telescopic pole that can extend to an impressive reach and a specially-designed head which cups around the disc rim to pull the disc ashore. Yet some players are hesitant to spring the cash for a retriever that will save money time and time again when considering the number of discs saved. That’s where you come in– give one as a gift and that player will find endless occasions to use it!
TROOPER BACKPACK — One of the most popular entry-level backpacks comes from Dynamic Discs. The Trooper has been a top seller for any player who wants an inexpensive yet comfortable backpack to carry their discs around the course. Thought it doesn’t come with a lot of extra features, it covers all of the baskets and is perfect for players who have over a dozen discs and want a way to carry them inexpensively.

Disc Golf Books — While there haven’t traditionally been a lot of books available for disc golfers, we’ve been hunting some down. They always make an interesting, less expected gift. The newest addition to our small book selection is the new DISC GOLF REVOLUTION by Jack Tupp.
This is a book that presents disc golf’s irrefutable case as the ideal sport for the 21st century. If you see yourself as part of the ‘Grow the Sport’ movement, The Disc Golf Revolution is for you. Keep it on hand and give copies as a gifts to those who needs to know the full story.
ProPull Disc Golf Trainer — The ProPull resistance band training kit has become a popular item for serious disc golfers who want to improve their throwing speed and strength. It can be used anywhere that the bands can be secured to a pole or tree. Check out the demo video HERE and see if this is the perfect gift for your disc golfer.
These small items would be fun for little gifts to any disc golfer. They don’t take a lot of space, they aren’t expensive, and they can add a little fun to your Christmas morning…
Flight Towel — The Flight Towel is one of the latest trends in disc golf. These towels come with a fob attached, and each fob is made out of the rim of a popular disc. That way, the towel isn’t only good for drying discs, but it can be used as a warm-up tool where the player whips the towel through the air in a throwing motion. That helps warm-up the throwing arm with the player gripping the disc that rim that they love. It’s an interesting and fun accessory that should make any player pleased.
Other Disc Golf Towels — Towels are frequently needed by disc golfers to keep their discs dry, and we’ve got a variety of different towels, from lightweight to thick and absorbent. They can easily be stuffed into any stocking. Plus, there are towels that are branded for just about any manufacturer, so no matter which brand the player likes, there should be a towel just for them.
Pyrohyzer Glass Mini Discs — Another fun product that Infinite Discs started carrying this year is the unique glass mini discs by Pyrohyzer. Each mini is handmade and entirely unique. The prices vary depending on the amount of extra features, like “shatter” patterns, swirls, glow-in-the-dark, and etching. Though these glass minis are nice enough to display, they can be used as mini markers during disc golf rounds. They’re definitely a top-notch gift idea that fits into the stocking. Also available in MICRO MINI sizes.
Whale Sac — These little, hand-sized bags are filled with clay to help players dry their hands during disc golf rounds, particularly when it is hot and fingers can lose a grip on the disc. While there are many similar grip-enhancing bags like this on the market, the Whale Sac has been one of the most popular because they are produced by professional disc golfers, and they feature a cool “tail” to use for tying them onto a bag, backpack, or cart.
Infinite Discs Metal Mini Marker — When a player is in a tournament, they’ll need to have a mini marker to mark where their disc landed, and what better way to stand out then with a shiny, golden metal mini from Infinite Discs!
Infinite Discs Wooden Mini Marker — Or, if the player wants to mark their lie with something that looks more natural, perhaps a wooden mini marker will stand out? These unique wooden mini markers have the “Infinite Bomber” logo etched into them for a fun, unique appearance.
Pocket Discs — Every year we see an increase in sales for Pocket Discs because they are such a fun little idea for disc enthusiasts to throw around the house. They fit in the stocking, or in a pocket, and are hand-woven as a floppy, soft, catch-and-throw disc. There is a regular sized indoor pocket disc for $9.99, or a larger, heavier “El Grande” pocket disc for $19.99 if you want more distance and higher performance.
Friction Gloves — While these might appear to be somewhat expensive gloves at first glance, they are actually worth every dollar for disc golfers who want to play when it is cold outside. They take the bite out of the cold air, but more importantly, they provide extra grip on the disc, even when the plastic is wet. That way, disc golfers can play in the gold without taking gloves off to throw and putting them back on again to warm up. If you don’t want to buy a pair of the Friction Gloves, they are also sold separately for single hands, so that the throwing hand can have the enhanced grip.
We also have the newest line of WARM FRICTION GLOVES which are thicker to keep hands and fingers warm in even lower temperatures which still providing the grip to play the game.
We’ve been carrying UV Flashlights for charging glow-in-the-dark discs for a while now. But this year we discovered the DemoGrid Deluxe UV Flashlight, and it is our new favorite because it has so many features! It has both a UV light for charging discs, plus a white light so you can find your way around the course at night. Plus it has strategically placed magnets so that you can attach it to your metal disc golf cart, the trunk of your car, or whatever you want to keep it in place while you charge up your discs. It has a fun handle and will fit into pockets of most disc golf backpacks.
But if you want something a little more simple, check out all of our UV Flashlights for Night Rounds.
Of course, if you’re out of ideas, or you simply prefer to let your disc golfer pick their own discs or accessories, you can count on gift cards. Infinite Discs has two options for gift cards:
E-GIFT CARD — Delivers a code to the specified email address which can be used to purchase product on the website.
PHYSICAL GIFT CARD — We ship a plastic gift card to you so that you can wrap it, put it in a stocking, or hand it to the recipient.
