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.

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 .
