Amazon’s Kindle book gift service is designed to send Kindle books as gifts for those who are living in the same region. Remember, some Kindle books are not available in all regions due to strange copyright restrictions. Even though you may find one the prices are not same. In such cases gifting Kindle books across regions are troublesome. If you send a Kindle book that is available only in U.S. Kindle store to your friend in Asia-Pacific region whether that title isn’t available, your friend will not be able to download that book. According to Amazon:
To send Kindle as a gift, place Kindle in your Shopping Cart and check the box next to “Add gift-wrap/note” when completing your purchase.
Designating your Kindle purchase as a gift ensures that the device is not automatically registered to your Amazon.com account and prices for the Kindle purchase will not appear on the packing slip. If you’ve already placed your order and it hasn’t shipped, you can change the gift settings in Your Account.Giving a Used Kindle as Gift
