Japanese term or phrase: のし: 対応可
I was translating a sales ad for a silk fan (as part of the YAQS translation test) and ran across this one line near the end of the ad. Though I'd like to think my Japanese skills are good, I've never encountered this particular term used this way, and I can't seem to find anything about it in dictionaries or searching online. Thanks for any help.

Explanation:
Depending on the intended audience, you might want to leave this as "noshi", but assuming it is intended for an audience not familiar with Japanese traditions I would choose "gift wrapping (service)" or "gift options". See the reference links for more info about noshi.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I was pretty sure this was the general sense of the term, but I had only ever seen のし refer to the decorative tags on gifts, not the actual gift wrapping, so I wanted to confirm my suspicions. Thanks for clarifying!
