envolver (verb) — to wrap, envelope. Look up envolver in the dictionary

Voy a envolver este regalo para llevar al cumpleaños de Vanessa.

El calor envuelve a Bob y no se gusta

Los padres pudieran envolver a sus preciosidades con el amor, y también les deben dar muchos besos para que les muestren cómo mucho son amados

Bueno, hoy acerté que a Bob no le gusta el calor. A él le gusta que lo envuelva el fresco de un amanecer otoñal del noreste del país.

Parece así, sí

Tengo una preguntita.

Cuando se utiliza 'involved' en inglés en el sentido de ' I got involved with him' o ' I was involved in this organization' o ' I was involved in this situation', ¿se utiliza 'envolver' también?

Como por ejemplo:¿ 'Me quedé envuelta en esta situación'?

¿Y se utiliza también cuando se trata de 'to get involved' con alguien?

@Empanada: "Involucrarse" to get involved, "estar involucrado" to be involved, would be my first translation choices there.

¡Ok gracias Angelica!

This would pertain to both the type of 'to be involved in an accident' e.g. as 'to be involved with someone' (relationship) by the way? (or would the latter be 'involucrarse again?)
