A customer request to mark the package as a "gift"

I am located in France and a customer from Norway asked this of me, "Is it possible for you to mark the item as a gift when shipping? It would greatly help in reducing custom handling cost on my side."
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks so much!

Don't mark an item gift unless it is a gift from you to someone you know. It's falsifying import/export documents and against the law in many (all?) countries.
The customer is trying to avoid paying taxes that they owe to their country on imported goods, which is why it's generally illegal to mark packages with amounts lower than the price paid.
