How can I send an order as gift in Expresso Store? I tried the Gift Wrapping add-on but I'm not sure how to make it work.
Appreciate your help in achieving the above. Thanks!

I believe all you need for the basics of a gift order is the ability to have different billing and shipping addresses, which Expresso Store allows. So gifts can be done, you'd just want a custom field to capture 'Is this a Gift?' option.
The add-on, Gift Wrapping, that you mentioned above, seems as if it's more to provide an option, like, well… 'gift wrapping'. I mean, if you were going to charge, like Amazon and other stores do to have the item wrapped and a card added to it, rather than just shipping it to the person.
If you're not offering, gift wrapping— meaning you won't offer to wrap and add a card to a gift item, then I believe you can just add one or more custom fields related to how to handle a gift, such as 'Is this a gift?' and/or 'Include Receipt?'
