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.
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” or “Add a free gift message.”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, apple.com 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 apple.com — 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.
Please note that Apple Print Products are ineligible for gift messaging.
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.
There are two types of gift cards that you can purchase from apple.com: Apple Store Gift Cards and iTunes Gift Cards.
Apple Store Gift Cards take the guesswork out of giving a gift. Your friends and family can choose exactly what they want from our huge collection of Mac, iPad, iPod touch and accessory items at apple.com.
