Have you ever been in this scenario?

You spend hours looking for a gift for the kid in your life. You lovingly pick out a shirt or toy. And when you excitedly hand over the present, the kid hates it. Or worse, it doesn't fit.

We all know that kids' preferences can change overnight, but this doesn't mean you can't get them gifts they'll love. This is where baseball hats for kids come in!

But what exactly should you look out for when buying baseball hats for kids? And how do you go about picking a hat that's the right size and fits the kid's personality?

Whether you're an excited grandparent or a nervous aunt getting her first gift for her nephew, we've got you covered. Keep reading to learn about everything you need to consider to pick out the perfect hat for the kids in your life!

Pick the Perfect Cute Style

There are a ton of different baseball hat styles out there for kids. And many of them are really cute! While many adults prefer simple baseball caps with no messages on them, kids aren't usually fans of these "boring" styles.

You want to consider two things: the color of the hat and the embroidery you can get on it.

If you're picking a baseball hat for girls, you can choose to go with the classic light pink shade that many little girls love. But don't think you're limited to only pink! 

A cute denim hat with a heart is a great choice for little girls. The denim makes the hat color unique, while the heart is a super cute choice that kids are sure to love. You can also pick between a red heart and a navy heart.

For a baseball hat for boys, you can go for colors that boys tend to love, like navy and camouflage. Just like with girls' hats, you can also choose fun embroidery.

For example, this number hat is a great choice for boys who love sports. You can choose a number for their favorite sports player, for example. You could also pick the number of their birthday for a more personalized gift. 

Don’t Forget About Sizing

While baseball hats for kids are usually adjustable, you'll want to double-check the sizing on the hat you want to buy.

You don't want your kid getting too big for their baseball cap—or outgrowing it before they're ready! Always check the size guide if you're not sure what size baseball hat for kids is right.

At Rey to Z, our hats are adjustable. Each has a metal buckle at the back that you can adjust. The metal buckle also helps the hat last longer as it's much more durable for active kids.

Our hats also adjust 1-2 inches bigger or smaller, so you don't have to get the size exactly perfect.

It's often better to get a slightly bigger hat so the kid can grow into it, especially if they're at an age where they'll have a growth spurt.

If you're the parent, grandparent, or aunt/uncle of the kid, you could always try measuring the child's hat size for a more accurate fit.

Make It Custom

Custom baseball hats for kids make great gifts for new parents because the kid will grow into the hat. You don't have to worry about things like sleeves or pant legs fitting as you do with other clothing items.

They're also a much more personalized option that shows how much thought you put into the gift.

Custom hats for kids are also a fantastic gift for parents welcoming another baby.

One fun idea is to get a big bro hat for a boy who's just gotten a new sibling! We also offer similar hats for little brothers, little sisters, and big sisters too. These are great gifts for both small and large families, no matter how many kids they have.

You can also get matching hats for the whole family. For example, this smiley face hat currently comes in four different colors. This means you could get the same color for each member of the family if you want them to match. 

Or, you could customize each color to each family member. If you know them well, think about what colors they like to wear. This makes sure that every member of the family has the best baseball cap to fit with the rest of their wardrobe!

You could also get custom embroidery on the back of each hat. This is a great place to put the family's name or a fun slogan that they love to say.

Know Proper Hat Care

Baseball caps for kids are a great gift because they can last a long time with the proper care. But anyone who's gotten gifts for kids knows that they can get dirty really quickly.

Baseball caps are pretty easy to clean as long as you keep a few simple things in mind. 

Stains on baseball caps should be spot cleaned right away with a damp cloth and mild detergent. 

Our hats at Rey to Z are machine washable, which makes care super easy. All you need to do is put them in a delicates bag on the gentle cycle.

Make sure to hang the caps to air dry. If you put them in the dryer, the heat will cause the baseball hat to shrink and could damage the fabric.

If you're not getting the cap for your own family, make sure to pass on the cleaning instructions to the parents!
