In addition to free laser engraving, Apple is offering $5 gift boxes with the purchase of iPods from its online store. Apple calls the signature gift boxes “origami-style” and includes simple red ribbon with each box. “For just $5, we’ll ship your iPod in our origami-style gift box,” the Apple Store says. “It’s great if you can’t be there when they open it, even better if you can watch their faces light up.”
