Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions (and our answers)
| ||1.|| ||How is Wishwrapping different from shopping at other online gift stores? |
At Wishwrap, every gift you give can be paired with any of our 27 wishwords to express a unique sentiment. Because you select your own wish, your gift will be both personal and thoughtful – with one easy click.
| ||2.|| ||Do I have to select a wish for a product I want to buy? What if I want to buy something for myself? |
While you can always select a wish for any of our products, you can also choose not to have a product paired with a wish by choosing ‘none’ in the wish selection dropdown when adding a product to your shopping bag. Or, you can select one of our Exclusive Gift Packages and leave the wish selection to us. Our goal is to bring you a shopping experience that meets your gift-giving needs, whatever they may be.
| ||3.|| ||How much does the special Wishwrap packaging cost? |
The signature Wishwrap packaging is an important part of the Wishwrap experience. It will leave a lasting impression for the recipient of your gift, and it will also tie the sentiment you selected to your gift. In fact, we believe that the Wishwrap packaging is so important that we will provide it with every gift at no cost to you.
| ||4.|| ||Can I enclose a message with my Wishwrap gift? |
Every Wishwrap gift will come with a card that expresses the sentiment you selected for your gift recipient. During the checkout process, you can view and modify the message directly in the sample gift card. While you can make any change you want, we recommend keeping the sentiment you selected in the card.
| ||5.|| ||Can I change the items in a Gift Package? |
Although you cannot change any item in the pre-made Gift Packages, you can create your own, if you would like. Simply add multiple products to your Shopping Bag, selecting the same occasion and the same recipient for each product. We will group your products into packages. All products are Wishwrapped free of charge, regardless of the size of the order.
| ||6.|| ||Will my order be packaged in a bag or a box? |
Typically, all of our Gift Packages and jewelry items come in boxes, and the rest of the items come in bags. For oversized items which may not fit in a bag or a box, we will just give a bag complimentary with the order, but will not be able to pack the gift inside it.
| ||7.|| ||Can I choose more than one wish for a gift? |
You have the option of selecting any one of our 27 wishes for each gift. Due to the special care taken to package each gift, you can only select one wish per item.
| ||8.|| ||Can I choose my own wish for a product? |
Each of our 27 wishes represents a unique sentiment. Your gift can be packaged in any of these wishes, or none. Unfortunately, we cannot generally accommodate requests for special packaging with different wishes not listed on the site. If you have a large order and would like to discuss your unique packaging needs, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
If you would like to suggest a new wish to be added to our current list of wishes, you may enter our Make A Wish contest and submit your request. In addition to having your wish granted as a permanent feature on our site, you will be eligible to win a prize valued at over $500!
| ||9.|| ||How will Wishwrap make sure that the recipient makes the connection between the wish and the gift given? |
Each gift purchased at Wishwrap is delivered in special packaging that connects the wish conveyed to the recipient. The wish selected for the gift will be displayed on the gift card as well as on a tag around the gift itself.
| ||10.|| ||Do you personalize gifts? |
Every gift at Wishwrap is unique and personal, from our packaging down to your gift message.

Normally, if a product is displayed on the website, we do have it in stock.

You will be given the option to change or cancel your order, or we can notify you when it becomes available again, with no charge to your credit card.
