Apple has kicked things into holiday gear. Apple’s 2021 Holiday Gift Guide is now live, the company said in an announcement earlier today.
This holiday season, Apple has not only committed to helping customers find the perfect gifts for their loved ones, but will also offer customized holiday cards from Today at Apple.
“Our teams can’t wait to connect with customers to make this season special,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Senior Vice President of Retail + People at Apple.
“Whether in stores or online, our Apple Specialists are ready to welcome customers, offer gift recommendations, and provide the support customers need throughout the holidays.”
If you’re having trouble figuring out what you should get for someone, Apple’s got you covered with their detailed Holiday Gift Guide. The guide contains Apple product recommendations for photographers, creatives, health and fitness buffs, entertainment lovers, and everything in between. “There are options for everyone,” says the tech giant.
Apple says customers who want to make sure they get their orders on time should use the “order by dates” feature when ordering for timely and free home delivery.
“Engraving adds that extra special touch and is offered for free only at Apple.com,” the company tips anyone buying its products as gifts. Engraving is available for AirPods, iPad, AirTag, and Apple Pencil.
Apple also went on to recommend the Apple Store app for personalized gift recommendations and confirming product availability, and also touted its “convenient same-day two-hour delivery and next-day delivery” services that are available in many regions.
All-new personalized holiday card will also be an option for Apple customers this holiday season. “Using iPad or Mac, customers can choose from festive shapes, colorful stickers, and backgrounds. They can customize their cards even further with photos, videos, and a heartfelt message,” says Apple.
Today at Apple holiday cards will be available as downloadable Keynote templates for Apple customers, and were developed in collaboration with artists Jocelyn Tsaih, Antti Kalevi, and Hvass&Hannibal.
Lastly, Apple announced the relocation of its historic Apple Store located within The Grove in Los Angeles, which originally opened up in 2002. On November 19, the outlet will open its doors at another location in The Grove, and will be twice the size of the original.
To make holiday gifting easier for its customers and those that receive its products as gifts, Apple extended its return policy for products bought during the holiday season through January 8, 2022, last week.
