Don't Even Bother

[Shopping] So, I'm happily streaming along on Macy's department store's Web site, scrolling through the wedding registry for a cute young family member. I'm buying her a shower gift. I choose a sweet little set of Egyptian cotton towels. Color: Oyster.

In the check-out process, a window pops up, asks me if I want it gift-boxed. Well hell yes! The bride and groom plan to live in Logan, after all.

Then this box pops up:

The perfect gift tied with a bow! For a $5 fee, we'll package your purchase in our graceful cream gift box, tie it with ribbon and enclose a personalized gift message.

(We're sorry, but due to size the following items cannot be gift boxed: luggage, dinnerware sets 20 pieces or larger, rotisseries, convection or microwave ovens, indoor/outdoor grills, standmixers, breadmakers, juicers, cookware sets, hanging pot racks, picnic baskets, mattress pads, pillows, comforters and comforter sets. Please choose the "no gift box" option if purchasing one of these products.)

Hmmm ... About covers every wedding gift I can think of. Is there anything Macy's will wrap for my measly little $5? Ah, customer service... (Holly Mullen)
