Panama Hat Gift Packages: How to Give a Custom Montecristi Hat

It's Easy To Give a Custom Montecristi Hat

A hand-woven, hand-blocked, custom-sized
Montecristi Panama hat is an awesome present. (How do I get on your gift list?)

A Montecristi Panama hat is a very big deal. No other hat in the world, no other hat in history, has more caché. No other hat conjures up more fantasies of tropical romance and adventure, starring one’s self stylin’ ’neath the palms™.

Be assured, you will make someone’s daydreams come true when you give a custom-made Brent Black Montecristi Panama hat. Some say a Panama hat doesn’t get any better than that.

You don’t have to know anything about anyone’s hat size or favorite style. Just a name and address. I’ll take care of all the hat stuff. I’ve been taking care of Montecristi hat stuff for more than twenty years.

In a world of mass-produced and globally franchised everything, you are giving a gift that is made by hand, specifically and personally for the person who will wear it.

A rare gift.

Brace yourself for years of gratitude.

Perhaps a special warning to women is in order: Should you give him a legendary Montecristi Panama hat?

Knowing full well that he will put it on, look in the mirror, and begin to think he’s a suave, romantic, adventurous rogue who can have his way with you? Your call.

Two ways to get it exactly right.

Plan A: Give a Custom Gift Package

  • Custom gift card/gift certificate.
  • Tape measure, with instructions how to begin the custom sizing process.
  • Full color page with step by step instructions how to order one’s hat.
  • Color booklet, 8½ × 11, shows and tells why a hand-made Montecristi Panama hat is such an extraordinary treasure. Includes photos published in National Geographic.
  • The booklet also has photographs of some of my most popular men’s and women’s styles, so the recipient can begin to select a favorite.
  • The materials are presented in a hand-woven gift box, secured with an actual hat ribbon, bow, and BBB logo pin.
  • I will personally help, by phone and email, with style selection, ribbon color and width, crown height, brim width, etc.

Want to know why this is better than trying to give him a finished hat in a box?

  • You cannot possibly get this wrong.
  • You don’t have to try to figure out how to figure out the right size.
  • As the lucky recipient explores the materials in the package, s/he will go from Huh? to Wow! to eager aficionado. I’ve watched it happen.
  • S/he will enjoy the process as much as the present. I work personally with each client, by telephone and email, to take the uncertainty out of choosing the best style, getting the size right, and all the custom details.
  • No worries, I know how to do this long distance. I have custom made Montecristi Panama hats for clients in all 50 states, plus D.C, Guam, Puerto Rico, and more than 65 countries around the world.

Plan B: Include the recipient in the process. Order immediately.

  • Place an order online, or call 1-888-658-6500.
  • Request a tape measure if you have no idea of size.
  • We will begin the custom process and go as quickly possible.
  • Once there is a measurement, I will send five size test bands to try on and choose the best fit.
  • If you want the hat for a winter vacation, this is the way to go.
  • It takes time. This is the opposite of off the rack. Which is why it’s such a special present, yes?
