Gifting

We offer a variety of services that make apple.com the ideal place for you to purchase items to give as gifts for family and friends. Find out everything you need to know about giving a gift through apple.com.

Gift Messaging

For selected items delivered to a physical shipping address, you can include a free gift message on the packing slip. No pricing information will be included with the shipment. Free gift message is not available for pickup orders.

For eligible pickup orders, you may be able to add Apple Gift Wrap at an additional cost. This will enable you to leave a message for the recipient. See the Gift Wrap section below for more details.

When you select to put an item in your bag, just select the checkbox that says "This is a gift" or "Add a free gift message." In the Bag, click the Add Free Gift Message link, enter your message, then click the Save Message link.

If you're sending a gift directly to a friend or family member, you may want Apple to email them carrier and tracking information as their items are shipped. For more details, visit the Delivery & Pickup section of Help.

Gift Wrapping

When you order select products, you can add a special touch to your gift. Apple Gift Package is a signature gift box with a red ribbon and a greeting card with your personal message.

To add gift packaging:

  • When you add an eligible product to your bag, just select the checkbox that says "This is a gift", and you will be given the option to add gift wrap.
  • Please note: if you are planning to pick up your product in an Apple Store, selecting a gift package will add extra time to your order.

Gift Cards

Engrave Your iPad or iPod touch

Make it your own — or a gift they’ll never forget — with free laser engraving. You can add a message to any new iPad or iPod touch. This service is only available online and is not offered on refurbished products.

After you select your iPad or iPod touch on apple.com, you can enter up to two lines of text. As you type, you’ll see an image that shows what your text will look like. The text will be engraved on the back of the product, near the top, just as it appears in the image. Please check spelling carefully.

You may be able to make changes to the engraved text or cancel your item if online Order Status indicates that it has “Not yet shipped”. See the Viewing & Changing Orders section of Shopping Help for details or go directly to online Order Status. You may wish to review our Sales and Refunds Policy.
