How to Gift an Audible Book: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for a book lover, consider giving an Audible book. Audible is a platform that offers thousands of audiobooks, making it easy to find something for everyone. In this article, we’ll walk you through the simple process of gifting an Audible book.

Step 1: Choose the Audiobook

The first step is to find the audiobook you want to gift. You can browse the Audible website by category, or use the search bar to look for a specific title. Once you’ve found the audiobook you want to gift, click on the “Give as a gift” button.

Step 2: Choose the Delivery Method

Next, you’ll need to choose the delivery method. You have three options:

  • Email: You can enter the recipient’s email address, and Audible will send them an email with instructions on how to redeem their gift.
  • Print: You can print out a gift certificate to give to the recipient in person.
  • Schedule: You can choose a specific date for the gift to be delivered to the recipient’s email.

Step 3: Enter the Recipient’s Email and Personalize Your Gift

If you choose to send the gift by email, you’ll need to enter the recipient’s email address. You can also personalize your gift by adding a message to the recipient. This is optional, but it’s a nice touch that shows you put some thought into the gift.

Step 4: Choose a Payment Method

Once you’ve personalized your gift, you’ll need to choose a payment method. You can use a credit card, or use an Audible gift card if you have one. If you’re sending the gift by email, you’ll also have the option to preview the email before you complete the purchase.

Step 5: Complete the Purchase

Once you’ve chosen a payment method and reviewed your gift, you can complete the purchase. Audible will send the gift to the recipient’s email address, or you can print out the gift certificate to give in person.

Redeeming the Gift

When the recipient receives the gift, they’ll need to redeem it to download the audiobook. If you sent the gift by email, the email will contain instructions on how to redeem the gift. They’ll need to click on the link in the email, which will take them to the Audible website. If they don’t already have an Audible account, they’ll need to create one. Once they’ve logged in, they’ll see the audiobook you gifted them in their library. They can download the audiobook to listen to on their smartphone, tablet, or computer.


Gifting an Audible book is a simple and thoughtful way to show someone you care. Whether it’s for a birthday, holiday, or just because, an audiobook can provide hours of entertainment and enlightenment. By following these simple steps, you can easily gift an Audible book to someone special.
