Amazon Prime members can now send gifts to friends with only their email or mobile number—no delivery address needed.
Don’t worry about spoiling the surprise by asking someone for their house number and ZIP code. With the eligible product in your cart, select “Add a gift receipt for easy returns” and proceed to checkout. Then, when choosing a delivery address, Prime members will see an option to “Let the recipient provide their address.”
Enter the giftee’s email or mobile number and send a personalized message, which will appear in their online or SMS inbox with Amazon’s usual flourish. They’ll need to accept within a few days or it will expire and payment will be refunded. Recipients must also have an Amazon account to accept, but only the giver needs to be a Prime member.
