It's Dad's birthday. One of the most dreaded times of year. My Dad is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for.

But have no fear, if your Dad is tough to shop for too, then I'm here to help. But that's only if your Dad likes tennis like mine does! If he doesn't then this article won't help you at all.

If he does like tennis then I would start your search by looking at gifts for tennis players. This article does a great job of walking shoppers through the things they need to be thinking about when looking at tennis gear.

Your first main option for a tennis gift is something that will be used off the court. Personally, I like apparel. My Dad is a huge fan of ties because he has to wear one every day. He works at a big company and makes a lot of money so he needs to look nice. It is here that a tennis tie really comes in handy. He can look professional, but still show off his love for the game at the same time. In this same light, I also considered buying him a tennis pin. It is a small item, but when someones eye catches it, they'll be attracted to it. My Dad is already an attractive guy but this will make him look even cooler!

Your second main option for a gift for a tennis player is a classic, the tennis racquet! This should go without saying, but you'd be surprised how many people forget about buying one of the best tennis racquets as a gift. There are so many options when it comes to buying a racquet and A LOT to think about. Generally, I would tell someone you're going to buy them a tennis racquet as a tennis gift in advance. This way, they will have a chance to demo the racquet they are interested.

Remember that if you buy a tennis racquet, you may need to buy them some tennis string too. You can find some of the best tennis string available at Tennis Warehouse. They've got so much tennis gear that you'll be overwhelmed by all the options. But don't worry, they also provide some good reviews that will help you work through all of the mish mash.

Anyway, good luck on your search for a perfect tennis gift. You'll find that it won't be easy because there are so many different things you can buy out there that are applicable to the tennis world. I recommend that you purchase whatever it is you decide to buy from Here, you'll be able to review other customers thoughts about all of the best tennis equipment and therefore come a more informed conclusion of your own about what you want to buy.

Those Dads are tough, but with a little effort, he'll be a happy guy on his birthday!
