Do you see a wrapped gift icon? You probably had an interruption during download, happened to me before. Wait for your internet connection to improve, go back into the eshop and redownload from your account settings.

Well, I'm not sure if I had an interruption during download since it did finish and asked me if I wanted to continue shopping. And it took half of my blocks away too. (Also no, I did not see a wrapped gift icon.)

Try looking at Data Management in your 3DS's Systems Settings to see if your game is downloaded.

If it has you can maybe delete it from there and redownload it from the E-shop.

Okay I redownloaded it and when it finished, I went to homescreen and there was no gift box.

Have you tried contacting Nintendo about this problem?

Seeing as redownloading your game apparently didn't work.
