Padres Cap Gift Dilemma

So the holiday season is officially upon us. I came across a "giving" Christmas tree yesterday and I grabbed an ornament.  In case you aren't familiar, a giving tree is a Christmas tree decorated with paper ornaments and each ornament has a gift written on it for someone less fortunate.

A lot of the kids were asking for gift cards, but I wanted to take the time to get somebody something they really wanted.  I found one that I thought was right up my alley.

At first I thought I'd just get him the basic 59Fifty Padres cap that the players wear.  Then I realized that I didn't know his hat size, so it'd definitely have to be an adjustable or elastic cap.

I went online to see what kind of choices I had. That turned out to be a mistake.  Have you seen the Padres hats on lids.com?

Maybe this kid doesn't want just a blue hat with white logo?  Maybe he wants one of these.

These are probably ball caps that 17 year old kids wear now a days.  He'd probably be picked on if he wore a boring blue and white cap.  Just because I think they look a little douchey it doesn't mean that I should force my taste in hats on him.  This is the Christmas season after all and I want him to be happy, even if it makes me look like a douche buying it in the store.

I kind of like the one with the built in ear muffs though.

So what do you think?  Adjustable?  Elastic?  Official cap?  Throwback?  Douchey?
