How do I buy one of your ebooks as a gift for someone?

When I buy ebooks for myself, they're stored in my account and I log in with an email address. What if I don't know which email address my friend uses on her account with B&N, Amazon, etc., where she gets other content? Is it possible to buy a voucher or something that will let the recipient register the ebook as they prefer?

I was wondering the same thing and found another thread that gives some options if you are buying from O'Reilly.
1. buy it, download it yourself, and send them the bits (downside: can't re-download or get updates (if any))
2. buy it, contact support asking that it be transferred to recipient's account (downside: they need an O'Reilly account)
The O'Reilly ebooks are DRM-free (http://shop.oreilly.com/category/customer-service/ebooks.do), enabling strategy #1.

Actually, I have the same problem, as I would like to buy an eBook for my best friend who enjoys reading a lot. I should probably ask my cousin about that, as he used to donate and buy different types of books, including eBooks. Therefore, I sincerely hope he is going to help me and we will both solve this problem.
