Updated June 2019 to reflect current Amazon e-book gift instructions
Physical books are awesome as gifts (and by all means, get a physical copy of my books as a gift), but sometimes people want an e-book. This can get a bit tricky, particularly if you don’t know how they read e-books.
How to purchase an Amazon e-book as a gift
- Confirm they have an Amazon Kindle or want the gift of an e-book for the Kindle system, and know their personal email address.
- Go to Amazon and select the Kindle version of the book.
- As of June 2019, select the quantity and the “Buy for Others” button on the right of the book product page and follow the instructions to add a delivery date, gift message, and email address. You can also have the gift email sent to you and you can forward it on. You will need to have one-click ordering enabled.
There are additional details on this Amazon page (see the “Purchase Kindle Book as a Gift” second section).
