Shopping Cart Tutorial: How to Configure Magento 2 Gift Options

In the latest shopping cart tutorial, we guided you to set up Magento 2 Shopping Cart, including managing functions like Mini Cart, Redirect to Cart, Cart Thumbnails, etc. In this blog, we’ll continue with the shopping cart series and discover how to configure Gift Options – the last function of Magento 2 Shopping Carts. 

So, what exactly are Gift Options in Magento 2 for?

As you are also a buyer, you’ll know for sure that there are times a customer purchases something on an ecommerce website to send to other people as a present. And just like buying a present conventionally, the shopper desires to have it wrapped or attach a small wishing card with it when shopping online. Therefore, the Gift Options function on Magento 2 e-stores was launched to meet these needs.

How does it work?

Before checkout, available gift options appear in the shopping cart so the customer can select them. This way, the customer can determine whether they can add a gift message or a card and what gift-wrapping options they can have. A separate message and gift-wrapping option can be applied for each item. Plus, a gift receipt and a greeting card can be added when applied to the entire order.

Now you may understand the basics of Gift Options, it’s time to configure it.

How to Enable Magento 2 Gift Options

While the Magento 2 Gift Options configuration applies to the entire website, it can be overridden at the product level. In this part, we’ll learn how to configure Magento 2 gift messages, gift wrapping, gift receipts, and printed card options.

Step 1: Log in to the Admin panel, and navigate to Stores > Settings > Configuration.

Note: Gift wrapping, greeting cards, and gift receipts are available in Commerce edition only.

Step 4: The first two fields are for gift message options. By default, Magento Commerce lets customers add a customized gift message to their orders and products.

To offer this feature to your customers, just:

  • Select Yes for Allow Gift Message on Order Level to allow a single gift message for the entire order. If not, select No.
  • Select Yes to Allow Gift Message for Order Items to apply gift messages individually to each item in the Magento 2 shopping cart. If not, select No.

By configuring these, customers can add a gift message to the Gift Message section on the shopping cart page, as in this example:
