That is indeed.

It probably has to do with the money. Only if it says "in god we trust" as on USD bills, can you truly gift an Amazon book - for e.g. christmas.
Soo? No gifting for atheists?

I am myself not religious, but I still buy presents for christmas. It was meant as a joke above

Ohhhh! I never noticed that button before. Well, I don't usually buy books on a website, I buy on my Nook so I'd never see it.

One more question. Can you specify a delivery date? Like, say, I wanted to buy a book for my wife's Kindle but not have it show up in her library until Dec. 25?

Inside was a screen shot of her computer with the Amazon checkout screen and a notepad document open with a little message.

Mom is a bit of a nut.
I like that. Cute idea.

A ring box should contain a ring, preferably with diamonds, lots of them, and big.
I took it to mean #6 from the article.

My mom and I usually trade wal-mart gift cards and she isn't very computer savvy. I got a birthday/Christmas gift early from her this year as she couldn't get it up the stairs herself. She got me a new office chair for when I'm in front of my desktop computer. So no ebooks but a comfy place to sit while I read my Kindle.

Yep!

Article #6 on how not to impress a woman.

How to inflate a woman's expectations into the stratosphere and prick said balloon with a pin in less than a nanosecond.

If done be ready to run for safety ..quick!

Gifting right now is only possible in the US Amazon store, but various competitors in various contries are coming up with ways to gift ebooks as well. I hope it will be easier in the future, especially across geographical borders.

I just had to gift myself a EURO 7,79 giftcard from the German store (so I would receive the email), log in to my sister's German Amazon account, redeem the gift card code, then purchase a book for her so I can transfer it over to her new kindle. I had found and purchased numbers 2 and 3 of a trilogy in the US store, only to then realize that the first book is not available here.

What in the world are you all talking about?!!?

I think it's a great idea, and could only be better if you also kneel before gifting the ebook coupon in the ring box

Not so much if she is only a girl friend/companion and hoping for more!
