Amazon to enable e-book gifting

Amazon (.com) have today announced that they will enable e-book gifting. Perfect timing for Christmas.

No word on the feature's launch for the UK yet, but it can't be far behind!

I was just reading about this on KND.
Definitely a good thing.
Hmm...but having read it through, I would still rather the gift card in the first place and choose my own books.

Ooh, good news - though am I alone in thinking that blue rosette on top of the gold ribbon is a little over the top?

I think this is going to solve my problem with controlling GS's purchases. I'll set up an account for him and then gift the books he wants.
