We offer a variety of services that make the Apple Online Store 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 the Apple Online Store.

Engrave Your iPod or iPad

Want to make your new iPod or iPad your own? You can engrave any model of new iPad, iPod shuffle, iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod touch. Personalised laser engraving is only available on the Apple Online Store. Engraving is not offered on refurbished products.

After you select your iPod or iPad from the Apple Online Store, you will be offered the option to enter up to one line of text for iPod shuffle and iPod nano, and up to two lines of text for iPod classic, iPod touch, and iPad. As you type, you’ll see an image on the left side of the page that represents what your text will look like.The text will be engraved near the top, on the back of the product, just like it appears on the image.

Please make sure that everything is spelled correctly, as your engraved product cannot be returned. You may wish to review our Sales and Refund Policy. You may be able to make changes to the engraved text or cancel your item if the online Order Status indicates that your engraved product has “Not yet shipped.” See the Viewing & Changing Orders section of online Help for details or go directly to online Order Status.

Gift Messaging

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 cart, 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, 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.

Gift Wrapping

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 cart, 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 gift-eligible software or accessories to your cart, you can add the Apple Gift Package on the Cart page.

  • Corporate Gifting
