How about gifts with bowling pins and bowling balls on them? Available on Internet under bowling gifts or USBC.com's gift store. -- Lou

My DH fell in love with a Harley ball today... guess what he is getting for Valentines Day!

How about having a printer making certificates (or do it on the computer) showing someone's high game and high series? These could be put into glass frames and changed as the scores change. -- Lou

For those who wear a bowling glove, a cloth sleeve to wear under the glove will prevent the glove from absorbing sweat and building up what a friend's little girl calls "stinky glove." These can be found in pro shops.

If a friend bowls tournaments now and then, perhaps sponsoring them with a paid entry if it's not too much. Usually, if they win money, they pay you back then the two of you split the balance along the lines of 60-70% to the bowler and the rest to you the sponsor. -- Lou

Just taking your video camera to the lanes and setting it up on a tripod for a friend is a good gift. Just don't upload it to You Tube!!!

A paid lesson with an instructor (usually about $30/hour). Find one who videotapes or at least can take video on a cell phone so the bowler can see his/her bowling style.

A container for their tape, etc. Some use a fishing tackle box with the different levels when it's opened. I use a rectangular plastic box. Can't remember where I got it, but craft stores or kitchen areas of Walmart, etc., should have something appropriate.
