Audiobooks and ebooks
Thanks to ereaders and streaming audio services, digital books and audiobooks have become just as ubiquitous as physical books, if not more so. Amazon makes it easy to gift Kindle books by letting you either print out a voucher or send the recipient an email on a specific date. Ditto for Audible’s audiobooks and Comixology’s digital comics. Just click “give as gift” (Audible), “send as gift” (Comixology), or “buy for others” (Amazon) on the page and you’ll be able to choose a delivery method before checking out.
