Engrave Your iPod or iPad
Want to make an iPod gift extra special? You can engrave any model of a new iPod — iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod classic and iPod touch. Personalised laser engraving is only available through the Apple Online Store. Engraving is not offered for refurbished iPods.
After you select your iPod from the Apple Online Store, you will be offered the option to type up to two lines of text for iPod nano, iPod classic or iPod touch, and one line of text for iPod shuffle. As you type, you’ll see an image of what your text will look like on the iPod. The text will be engraved near the top on the back of the iPod, just like it appears on the image.
Please make sure that everything is spelled correctly, as your engraved iPod can’t be returned. You may wish to review our . You may be able to make changes to the engraved text or cancel your item if the online Order Status indicates that your iPod has “Not Yet Shipped.” See the Viewing & Changing Orders section of online Help for details.

- You will automatically be directed to the “Customise your Mac” page. Just select the radio button next to the configuration option(s) you'd like. Next to each option, the dollar amount that will be added (or subtracted) from your Subtotal is clearly listed next to each option. The Subtotal, Estimated Ship timeframe, and Specifications list in your summary at the top right of the screen will update as you choose options.
- When you are finished building your Mac, click the "Add to Bag" button.
You can also call our experts at 1800-80-6419 and we’ll be glad to help you build the Mac that’s right for you.
For most items in our store, you can include a gift message on the packing slip — at no charge.
When you select to put an item in your bag, just check the box that says "This is a gift" and you will automatically be given the option to add gift packaging. You’ll be prompted to create your message after you’ve finished shopping and have selected to check out. If your order includes items intended for different recipients, you can enter a message for each item so that when the gifts arrive, it will be clear which item is intended for whom. At this time, the Apple Online Store does not support shipping items in a single order to multiple shipping addresses. To send gifts to different addresses, please place a new order through the Apple Online Store, — one order per shipping address.
And don’t worry about pricing information being displayed for gift items. For all orders, the price is only included in the email notifications and never on the packing slips in the box. So if you have a gift shipped directly to family or friends, they won’t see the cost.
When you order a new iPod, iPad, iPhone, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or select Apple-branded software and accessories, you can add a special touch to your gift: the Apple Gift Package (subject to availability). The Apple Gift Package is a signature gift box with a red ribbon and a greeting card with your personal message.
Look for the gift icon on a product page to find out if the Apple Gift Package is available.
Gift packaging is only available for standard configuration models of MacBook and MacBook Pro.
To add gift packaging:
- When you add an iPod, iPad, iPhone, or portable Mac to your bag, just select the checkbox that says "This is a gift," and you will automatically be given the option to add gift packaging.
- When you add a gift-eligible software or accessory to your bag, you'll have the option to choose the Apple Gift Package during checkout.
