When we hear “presents,” the first thing that comes to mind is smiles. Giving a gift is a way of making someone happy. Even the thought of receiving a gift gets many people excited. Gifts are given on different occasions and for different purposes. If you have a cap to give a loved one, here is how to wrap it.
Reasons why we give others presents
When it’s someone’s birthday: This is the most popular reason to give a gift. The gift might not necessarily be huge or expensive, but as the saying goes, “it’s the thought that matters.” Gifts are also given on anniversaries.
Father’s/Mother’s Day: We give gifts on these days to appreciate our parents and our loved ones who are parents. This is a great way to show them they are loved and appreciated.
Valentine’s Day: Exchanging gifts on Valentine’s Day is also quite popular. We give our significant others presents to remind them how much we love them and care for them. Gifts are not only exchanged between lovers on Valentine’s day. We sometimes gift our friends and loved ones on Valentine’s Day, too.
Wedding: While some people do not keep the tradition of giving a newlywed couple gifts, others do. Some people even get creative with the gifts they choose.
When someone is sad: We have all had days when the world seems to lose its color. On days like these, having friends and family who love us is sometimes what we need to snap out of it. Giving a gift to a friend who is feeling down is an excellent way of lifting their spirits. The gift might be a little thing but it will show them love and how much they are cared for.
When someone starts a new job: We all know how nervous we sometimes get when showing up at a new job. Giving a loved one a gift is an excellent way of calming their nerves. They might be accompanied by a few words of assurance and encouragement.
When someone is injured or sick: We have all been sick or injured at some point in our lives, and we know how bad we felt. A well-thought gift would considerably boost the spirits of a sick or injured person. The gift might even be something they require to get better.
When a pet dies: Losing a furry friend or a not-so-furry one can be heartbreaking. Sending a gift or a card over to someone who has lost a pet is a way of letting them know you care and their emotions are valid.
To feel good: Many people may not be able to relate but giving others gifts or actively helping someone makes some feel good and fulfilled. Doing something for someone else is an excellent way of getting out of a slump.
To feel less guilty: No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. Sometimes, we inadvertently hurt people around us, and to ease our guilt, we accompany our apologies with a gift. Words do not need to be spoken in some cases; the gift will say it all.
To encourage someone: What better way to encourage someone than to give them a gift.
To make others adopt the habit of giving: Although this does not often happen, gifts may be given to serve as an example to others. Giving gifts is a way of spreading happiness. When others see and feel the joy of receiving presents, they may adopt the habit of giving too.
Different gifts for different people and different reasons
Different occasions sometimes require different gifts wrapped in specific wrapping. A “get well quick” gift will not be appropriate as a wedding gift. Also, the wrapping used for a Christmas gift will not be appropriate for a birthday gift in July. The gift wrapper used for a female might not be well suited for a male. Some gifts are gender-specific, while others are not.
Many people are intentional about the gifts they get others. They think about the type of gift that would suit the receiver and make them happy. They think about what gifts would suit their gender and what gifts would suit their personality.
Reasons a cap is an excellent gift choice
Caps are not gender-specific items, and they are terrific gifts as they do not go out of fashion. They are also a great gift choice as almost everyone likes caps.
Choosing a cap as a gift can be fun. Caps come in different sizes and designs, and you get to determine which one appeals more to the personality of the person you’re gifting. You also get to decide the color of the cap. Some people believe green caps bring bad luck, so it is advised not to buy them as presents for someone.
Caps can be wrapped with wrapping paper or other wrapping materials, like a foil wrapper or a metallic wrapper. Others package them in a box. They can also be packaged in a decorated bag with unique designs.
Gift wrapping caps can be very easy if one so desires. If it’s not in a box, many people tend to wrap them up shabbily and gift them like that. To avoid stressing over how they should be wrapped, many people opt for placing the cap in a box or decorated bag.
How to properly wrap a cap
- For best results, place a cap in a box. This will be much easier than simply trying to wrap the odd angles of a cap.
- Measure enough wrapping paper to go around the box once. Cut along the length, adding an extra 1 or 2 inches.
- Place the wrapping paper with its decorative side down and place the box in the center.
- Fold the wrapping paper along its length, over the box. Join the two flaps with a tape.
- There are two open ends now. Pick one open end and fold the corners. The corners should meet at the center. Then, fold all of the sides. Use tape to hold it to the top.
- Repeat for the second open end.
- The cap in its box should be well wrapped now. Tie with a ribbon and use a bow if desired.
The cap is all set to be gifted! If the cap is wrapped following the above steps, it will stay wrapped.
