It is always important to make your eCommerce store stand out from the crowd, but even more so in the lead up to the peak Christmas shopping period. One way to do this is to offer a gift wrap service.
CTI’s Matt Smith developed a Commerce Gift Wrap module for online stores operating on Drupal Commerce.
As a firm believer in open source collaboration, Matt contributed this module to the Drupal community. Our open source projects at CTI reach far beyond the eCommerce sphere, but this particular module caught some attention within the community.
One of those little gems you find on Drupal.org .... why don't more people use this?

When this module was first released, it caught the attention of Commerce Guys and scored a feature on Drupal Commerce Module Tuesday.
Josh from Commerce Guys explores and reviews the Gift Wrap module.
Drupal Commerce Gift Wrap adds a new checkout pane with configuration settings to allow users to select a gift wrapping option. It also provides space to add a gift message to the recipient. This module is a simple addition to any site, to enable or disable around special occasions. Read more about the module on the Drupal Commerce Blog.
It’s never too early for an eCommerce site to begin preparations for the peak shopping period around Christmas. Whatever your operating system may be, consider installing extra features like the Gift Wrap module to your checkout pages.
