    How to gift an audiobook on an iPhone

    An audiobook is one of the best presents for your friends or loved ones. It can teach them valuable lessons, make their commute more enjoyable, or help them discover new stories in an immersive way.

    If you’re an iOS user, you can gift audiobooks using your Apple iPhone in a few different ways. Read on to learn how.

    The ways to gift audiobooks from an iPhone

    You can choose from numerous platforms to gift an audiobook from your iOS device. Some of the gifting options listed below will function even if the recipient has an Android instead of an Apple device.

    Send a gift from Apple Books

    Apple Books is the audiobook gift center for iPhone users. It works the same as sending a present from the App Store or the iTunes store. More importantly, it allows you to surprise your loved ones or friends with just a few taps:

    1. Open your Books app 

    2. Find the audiobook you want to gift and press the “Gift” button.

    3. Follow the on-screen prompts to personalize your present and finalize your request.

    Once you send your gift, the platform will email the recipient. They need only tap the message and choose “Redeem.” Their device will automatically download the audiobook.

    Gift an audiobook from the Amazon Audible app

    If you have an Amazon account, you can use it to gift someone an Audible audiobook:

    1. Open the Audible app on your iPhone and enter your Audible account credentials.

    2. Find the book you wish to send and head to its summary page. You can choose audiobooks from the library or browse Audible’s bestseller list.

    3. Tap the “Give as a gift” button, which should be under the prompt to buy the audiobook with cash or credits.

    4. Decide whether you want to send your gift as a gift card or email.

    5. Pick your payment method and select “Confirm Purchase” to complete the request.

    After purchasing and sending the gift, you should see the “Thank You” page that confirms your purchase. You should also get an email that informs you of a successful purchase. If you wish to print the gift, follow the on-screen prompts.

    Keep in mind that you can’t use all Audible credits to buy gifts. The list includes credits earned from book returns, bonuses and promotional credits through offers you haven’t purchased, and credits received through your Gift membership.

    Buy an eGift card using Chirp

    Chirp is an audiobook solution that provides limited-time offers on New York Times bestsellers and other popular audiobooks. Any audiobook you purchase remains in your library forever.

    Plus, you can use the platform on your computer, iPad, or smartphone. The app also supports offline listening by allowing you to download audiobooks on any device.

    More importantly, Chirp enables you to send audiobooks as a gift. Here’s how you can do so:

    1. Go to Chirp and find the book you want to gift.

    2. Choose “Give as a Gift” on your audiobook page.

    3. Choose the date when your gift message and book will be delivered to your recipient.

    Gift the audiobook using Libro.fm

    The Libro.fm catalog lets you gift individual audiobooks. You can also purchase credit bundles that can be applied to your account or forwarded to your recipient.

    With these bundles, you can choose how many credits you want to send (between two and 24). The recipient then selects an audiobook depending on the number of credits you’ve sent them.

    Both credit bundles and individual audiobooks are available in your bookstore. You can gift titles via email or printable gift certificates.

    The gifting process goes as follows:

    1. Browse the Libro.fm catalog to find an audiobook.

    2. Hover over the picture of your book cover.

    3. Pick “Gift Audiobook.”

    4. Proceed to your cart.

    5. Enter the information about your recipient and provide payment details.

    6. Complete your checkout.
