Cool Things: Now You Can Gift an iBook on the iPad

iBooks Gift a Book

If you’re looking for some last minute (ish) ideas for holiday gifts, here’s another option worth considering – gift someone an iBook, right from your iPad.

Apple has recently enabled the gifting feature in iBooks on iOS – so it’s easy to do with just a few taps.

Gifting an iBook works just like gifting an app. Once you’ve got a selected iBook open, you tap on the Share button at the top right of the book’s info page – and then tap the Gift button. From there you enter the recipient’s email, any message you want to add, and select whether to send Today or on another date, pick a design for the gift notification, and make your purchase.

A nice way to share the gift of reading on an iPad – hopefully along with some great printed books as well.

  1. Hi Patrick
    Thanks for your postings.
    Do you know if someone in the UK can gift an iBook to my iPad in South Africa, where I live.
    Christmas greetings to you

      Sorry to say I’m pretty sure Apple restricts this so that you can only send a gift to somebody in the same nation as you are in.
