there is a backend option to allow for a gift message, but this does not display on the frontend.
I have done these:
1. Allow Gift Messages under System-->Configuration-->Sales-->Gift Messages.
2. Under System-->Configuration-->Advanced, the Mage_GiftMessage module says “Enable”.
But it still doesn't shown. I need it done by 16 O'clock Today (UTC time) [In next 3 hours]
I will pay you 30 US for this and There're many project waiting for you.
