Looking for the perfect gift for the book lover in your life? Not sure which books are on your TBR (must read) list? It’s hard to tell which books they already own, which they crave to read, and of course the form in which they want to read it.

That’s why we think gift-buying just got a whole lot easier when you can give that special someone access to over 300,000 audiobooks by gifting them an Audiobooks.com gift subscription. Talk about a book lover’s dream.

With 1, 3, 6 and 12 month prepaid subscriptions at Audiobooks.com, you can find the perfect gift for everyone. Click here to visit the Audiobooks.com Gift Center, read our step-by-step guide below on how to purchase a prepaid gift subscription, and don’t forget to check out the FAQ below before getting a gift that really speaks to them.

How to buy a prepaid gift subscription (step by step)

1. Go to www.audiobooks.com/gifts.

2. From the four options (1, 3, 6 or 12 months), select the one you wish to purchase and click the “Give This Gift” button below it.

3. You will then be taken to a new screen where you can select how you want to deliver the gift to the recipient. If you select ‘Email’, you can either send it immediately by selecting ‘Now’ or you can send it on a specific date by selecting ‘Choose a delivery date’.

If you want to give this gift in person, you can select “Print”.

You will then enter the recipient’s information in the To field and your information in the From field.

4. Next, scroll down and enter your custom message that you’d like to include with your gift. This is optional and if you do not enter a message, a pre-filled message will be included.

5. Below, you will have the option to select a special design to be included in the gift subscription. The Christmas and Thanksgiving options will always be available, and the third option switches seasonally.

6. Your final customization is to include a recommended audiobook. This will only be a recommendation of how their monthly credit will be spent and the audiobook will not be awarded to them. To select a recommended audiobook, click the “Select Audiobook” button. A popup will appear where you can search for the audiobook you wish to recommend.

7. Once you have filled in all your information and personalized, you will then click on Continue Payment.

8. If you are already a member of Audiobooks.com, you can click “Sign In Now” at the top of the screen. If you are not a member, you will need to create an Audiobooks.com account for free by filling in the account information. You will then enter your billing information below. Note: You will only be charged for the prepaid subscription and you will not be registered for a paid Audiobooks.com account.

9. Once your account information and billing information are complete, you can review this page to make sure your order details are correct. If everything looks good, you will press Confirm Purchase.

10. You will receive an email to confirm your purchase. Once the recipient redeems the gift you sent them, you will receive another email to confirm their redemption.

And that’s it! All that’s left is for the gift recipient (or for yourself if you decide to pamper yourself) to enjoy access to over 300,000 audiobooks, extra listening with VIP rewards, and many other member benefits every month!
