Welcome back to our two-part series on hats around the world!…
Christmastime is full to bursting with traditions. Each family or friendship has its own particular way of celebrating, but many traditions are common across the field. Christmas trees, with their sharp pine scent, dazzling light show, and delicate ornaments are often seen as one of the highlights of the season. Each tree is as different as the family that decorates it, but those who celebrate Christmas are sure to be gathered around it on Christmas morning to open their gifts.
Decorating is a Christmas must for many families. Christmas decorations range from a simple wreath on the front door to lights wrapping around the house and inflatable Santas bobbing up and down on the lawn. In many parts of the country, another Christmas tradition is to pile into the car and admire people’s outdoor Christmas decorations and light displays. Some houses even have synchronized light and music shows.
There are a thousand and one things to do during the holiday season, but the celebration of Christmas would not be complete without the traditional gift-giving. During the holiday season, people give gifts to almost everyone they know, from family members and friends to people that provide services to others such as the mailman, school bus drivers, and more.
When it comes to gift ideas, hats make practical gifts because of the cold weather. Choosing the right type of hat to fits its owner’s style is just as important as buying a hat for its warmth.
There are things to consider when giving a hat this Christmas. The hat that you give may be very fashionable, but it has to fit the facial shape of the recipient. Fortunately, hats do not come with one-style-fits-all limitations. Pay attention to your recipient’s face shape and personality when considering which hat to buy. Look for something that will accentuate that person’s best features while being a practical gift that they will actually use.
Another important factor in choosing the right hat is your recipient’s size. Baseball caps are one of the few hats that offer leeway on sizing, so if you’re planning to give a different style such as a fedora or cowboy hat, make sure to get the correct size. This may require you to do a little investigative work if you want to keep your gift a surprise.
Your recipient’s location should also be a determining factor in what style of hat you buy. If your recipient is from a trendy city like Los Angeles or New York, a fedora could be a nice gift. If your friend is from a cold climate, consider a hat with earmuffs attached. Similarly, a cowboy hat with a wide brim for fending off the sun’s rays would be an excellent choice for a warm environment.
Giving a personalized or customized hat is a step beyond regular gift-giving. Everybody loves to see his name or logo on an apparel item. A personalized hat is a gift that the recipient will keep on using.
Hats off to you for considering headwear as a gift this holiday season. For every type of hat that you want to give to family and friends, Acme Hat Co has the style that will suit your needs.
