Gift Wrapping / Gift Messaging

Most items are available for gift wrapping. To gift wrap an item, select the item(s) to be gift wrapped from the Gift Options section of the Shipping page of the checkout process. Your gift will be wrapped in our exclusive blue paper with stretch gold cord for $5.95 per package.

You may also include a free personalized message for the gift recipient. When you reach the Shipping page of the check-out process and select Gift Options, you can type your message (maximum of 60 characters). You can also write a gift message, free of charge, without gift wrapping the item.
