In Magento 1.6, you have the ability to allow your customers to add a gift message to the order. This is a great feature especially if you expect to sell products or goods during the Holiday season. Enabling year around allows website visitors to add a gift message for any reason such as birthdays or anniversaries. Enabling the gift message functionality is done through the Magento 1.6 Admin Panel.

  1. Log into your Magento Admin Panel
  2. Go to System -> Configuration -> ADVANCED -> Advanced
  3. Make sure that the "Mage_GiftMessage" is enabled
  4. mage_gift_1

  5. Click "Save Config"
  6. Go to System -> Configuration -> SALES -> Sales -> Gift Options
  7. mage_gift_2

  8. Adjust the settings to "Yes" for each of the desired actions
  9. mage_gift_3

    Click "Save"

Great tips! In addition to gift messaging it’s cool to let customers choose gift wrapping. I know it’s possible out of the box in Magento Enterprise but not in Community. For latter there are different extensions. I’m currently using Gift Wrap by Amasty.
