How to get the gift message value in Magento2.1.7?

I am getting the gift message value as $getgiftMessage = $item->giftMessage();

But I am not able to get the value.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • I am fetching it from order.

  • I think you will get only gift message id from there. Mar 22, 2019 at 13:42

You can get Gift message for order item using below code.

public function __construct(
    \Magento\GiftMessage\Api\OrderItemRepositoryInterface $orderItemGiftRepo
) {
    $this->orderItemGiftRepo = $orderItemGiftRepo;

public function getGiftMessage($orderId, $orderItemId)
    $giftMessage = $this->orderItemGiftRepo->get($orderId, $orderItemId);
    $giftMessage->getMessage(); // This will give you message

I hope it will helpful :)

  • I want to call gift message in phtml file.

  • Then you can put this code in block file and call getGiftMessage() function Mar 22, 2019 at 13:54
  • You can use \Magento\GiftMessage\Api\OrderRepositoryInterface to get the gift message for the whole order

In case if you need get message value on checkout/cart page you can use \Magento\GiftMessage\Model\MessageFactory

For example in your block:

protected $_messageFactory;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\GiftMessage\Model\MessageFactory $messageFactory
    $this->_messageFactory = $messageFactory;

public function getGiftMessage()
    $giftMessage = $this->messageFactory->create();
    $item = $this->getItem(); 
    if ($item->getGiftMessageId()) {
        return $giftMessage->getMessage();

    return '';
