Polo is grand fun, but those horses sure are expensive. Forget the equine element of the classic game and play a game of pillo polo. The game is similar to hockey and is perfect for players of all ages. Each game has a dozen sticks and foam balls—all you need are players and two goals.
When I visit my nieces they always love to play games in their backyard. They've got quite a collection going of games (bocce, horseshoes, badminton) but I bet they don't have pillo polo! Christmas gift: done.
