A bowler who hits a personal high game or high series will likely be proud to have a bowling towel embroidered with those scores on it.

As their high scores surpass the old ones, the new scores can be added to the towel or a different towel made for them.

Many trophy shops have trophies to recognize your friends' bowling achievements.

I remember when leagues gave trophies for league champions, high series, high game, high average, and most improved bowler.

Of course, that was when leagues held banquets to present awards and prize money -- league members received free dinner, and guests were $25.00 or so for prime rib or steak dinner.

Bowling pins also can now be customized for your favorite bowler.

Check with your pro shop or at Pinterest or other sites via a search. Some of the airbrushed ones look really fantastic.

On that theme, bowling balls can now be made with different sports team's logos embedded in them if you've got a few extra dollars for a true sport's fan's gift.

There are bowling hand towels out now with logos of professional football teams on them. Would make a terrific gift.

Bowling balls soak up a lot of oil over the course of a league season. A nice gift would be a certificate for a ball soak in a special solution at your pro shop, if they have the machine.

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.
