WooCommerce Add Gift Wrapping Option
First, you'll need a plugin to add the gift-wrapping feature to your WooCommerce shop. In this tutorial, I will use the free Flexible Product Add-Ons plugin. The configuration is easy. Once you download and activate the plugin (need a hand?), you are ready to go.

✅ Here, you will find configuration options in the Products menu as seen below in the screenshot.

Gift wrapping as a customer-friendly feature
As I said before, gift wrapping 🎁 can boost your sales. People would like to order a product as a ready-to-give present. If you want to offer such an option for free, you will need to specify the product(s) for which a customer will be able to order gift wrapping. This is easy.
The next thing you need to do is to configure the Checkbox field. Give it a label called Gift wrapping or a similar one. The label will be seen on the product page. You can also set a value. It will be shown in the order too. The customer will see it in the cart and order details and it will also be available in WooCommerce admin. The best value name for the Gift wrapping field is a simple Yes.
👀You can see below what it looks like on the cart page from your customer's perspective.
👀As an admin or a shop manager, of course, you'll see appropriate information if a customer chooses this option.

As I stated in this article's intro, gift wrapping can provide about a 50% profit margin per item. Why not make money out of it? You can specify any price you want for a gift-wrapping service🎁 . If you want to create such a paid option in your store, you will need the PRO version of the Flexible Product Add-Ons. Here is a direct link to it:
In the field group configuration window, you'll see some new options. It will be more convenient for you to assign a group field to multiple or all the products in the store.
✅ The killer feature delivered by the PRO version is pricing: Price type and Price options. You can select either fixed price or percentage calculations. In this example, I set £3 for a gift wrapping service.
