But have you ever wondered how to buy an Audiobook for someone else? Learning how to give an Audible book as a gift is actually incredibly easy. Which is lucky, because audiobooks make great gifts.

How to buy an Audible book for someone else
Step 1: Go into the Audible store
Okay, this one is obviously easy. However, it is good to know that there isn’t any special storefront for gifts, you can do everything from the main store.
Step 2: Find your chosen book and click the ‘gift’ link
When you find the book you want to gift, you’ll see a link to give the book as a gift.
The link is tucked away under the buttons and hand can be a bit hard to see. To be honest, I only saw it for the first time when I had to write this article.
Below is an expertly circled screenshot from my phone. And don’t worry, I managed to charge my phone in time.
Step 4: Choose how you want to gift the book
You can either email the book, or, you can print a voucher and hand it to someone in person.
I love the print version, it makes gifting a lot more personal.
Step 5: Double-check and confirm
Before confirming your purchase, make sure all your details are correct.
If they are, click confirm and you’ll be sent to the ‘thank you’ page. If you chose the ‘print’ option, you’ll be given further instruction.
