Please include a way for customers to write a gift note when checking out.  Please see the following examples for references for what it should look like.

• Under the shipping and billing information please put the text ‘Would you like to include a gift message?’ and then put a check box next to it
• If the customer clicks the check box there should then be field that appears that says ‘Gift Message’which the customer can fill out with text
• See attached for a reference (please note we do not want it like the below but as described above):  https://shop.surpriseride.com/checkout/?_ga=2.23540666.1090087036.1506097948-1996580864.1498079759

Hi, Heena! 

There is definitely a way to enable this on your shop. Check out these instructions here: https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/cart/get-more-information-with-order-notes?utm_medium=...

It will add a "note" option with a generic label that you can change to say "Gift message" or whatever you prefer. The link above covers how to do that as well. 

I hope that helps! Let us know if you run into any trouble. - JP

Hi Heena,

Our new App, GiftShip, helps solve this issue in-cart. From our App listing page you can take a look at some live stores to see how we achieve not only the ability to perform what you stated, but also to send items to different addresses from within the same order. Perfect for gift stores :)

Cheers,

Tim

Unless your on Plus, Carts are the only way to do it, basically by changing Cart notes.  If you are on PLUS, I can make this happen for you :)

Best Regards,
Duncan.

Hi there! I have set up a gift card as a product, but can't seem to figure out how to either get the note in the cart, nor add the specialized gift message elsewhere. Is there a way to do this? You mentioned you can, so I'd like to figure out how! Thank you!

I figured out how to an "enable a gift message” option for free, thought I’d share.
What you do is you enable a text box that appears in the checkout area that is originally meant for notes to the seller but you can change it to say something like “Sending as a gift? Add a message here:
 
It’s a 2 step process:
 
How to enable the cart message writing feature
>Shopify
>Online Store
>Themes
>Customize
>Select Page>Cart
>Cart Page>Enable cart notes (Left-hand side)
 
It should now say something like “Add a note to the seller"
 
How to change what the message says
>Shopify
>Online Store
>Themes
>Actions>Edit Languages
>Cart>Note (second option down)
 
Change it to say something like “Sending as a gift? Add a message here:”

Stephen, your solution here is helpful! Thank you!

Did you figure out a way to limit the number of characters allowed for customers to write in there, by the way?

I have not found a solution for a character limit yet, apart from writing it in the text above the text box.
