Gifting & Online Store Exclusives
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.
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.
Customize Your Mac
Because everyone’s needs are different, apple.com makes it easy to build the Mac that’s right for you.
Models That Can Be Customized
- MacBook Air
- MacBook Pro
- Mac mini (hardware only)
- Mac Pro
Please note that we are unable to customize refurbished Mac computers.
You have several options to build the system that is right for you. After you choose the model you want, you can configure, for example:
- Graphics card
- Storage type and capacity
- Keyboard and mouse
Why stop there? You can add any of these:
- AppleCare Protection Plan
- Cables, adapters, and other accessories
When you receive your Mac, you’ll find your preinstalled software on the second page of Launchpad and in your Applications folder.
Please note that a CD or DVD for your pre-installed software is not included. For support with your pre-installed Apple apps, visit https://support.apple.com/apps.
How to Customize
- Select the Mac notebook or desktop computer you want.
- On the Customize page, select the configuration options you’d like.
- When you are finished building your Mac, click the Add to Bag button.
The dollar amount that will be added to or subtracted from your subtotal is listed next to each option. The subtotal, shipping time frame, and specifications summary at the top right of the screen will update as you choose options.
You can also call our Specialists 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 touch, 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 touch, 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.
