    Hello everyone,

    Just had a quick question about sending App Store gift cards through iOS, or gifting a specific app through the App Store.

    When you get to the step to input the recipients email address, does this have to be their Apple ID address or will any email address work? I'm trying to get this done for Christmas without recipients knowing. What do they get in the email?

    Thanks!

    I believe it needs to be their AppleId. You'd be better off ordering a physical AppStore gift card through the Apple Store app.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I may do that, or just grab one from the mall.

    Just a little update.

    I emailed Apple Support and was told that any email address was okay to use. It does not need to be the recipients Apple ID. When they receive the email it will contain a redemption code.
