Online shoppers to be offered free iPad customisation

Engraving and gift wrapping services introduced by Apple for iPad

Apple has today launched a free engraving service for the iPad allowing online festive shoppers to adorn their high-end tablet purchases with a customised quip of their choosing.

As well as making the much desired gift a unique offering of heartfelt emotion, the personalised tag on the rear of the market leading tablet will ensure recipients won’t be pawning the iPad off on eBay to rustle up some extra cash come boxing day.

"Make it a gift they'll never forget - or make it uniquely yours. Just add a personal message such as a name, a favourite saying or song title, an 'I love you' or 'Happy Birthday,' just about anything," was Apple’s cornball official line on the free engraving service.

Joining the personalisation options of for the Apple iPad is a festive-themed gift wrapping service that will set lazy shoppers back an additional £3.
