Can you gift a specific Audible book in the UK?

For those looking to spend less, or perhaps wanting a more personal touch, you can always send your loved one a specific book to listen to. Whether it’s Pride and Prejudice for a Jane Austen fan or the latest sporting biography, you can track down the read you want and send it directly with a personalised message.

Again, if it turns out that your recipient already has the title you wanted to gift, the book will turn into credit and give them a chance to pick something else.

  1. Choose a specific title and go to checkout normally.
  2. Click the “Give as a gift” link and enter the recipient’s details.
  3. Enter your payment details.

  5. Your recipient will then receive the Audible gift voucher by e-mail on the scheduled date.

Audible is an audiobook service owned by Amazon that offers the world’s largest selection of titles, ranging from age old classics to new releases. Subscribers have unlimited access to thousands of Audible Originals, podcasts and audiobooks, as well as an extra credit to spend each month.

Listeners can download or stream their chosen titles which may be read aloud by a narrator, the authors themselves, well-known stars or even performed by an audio cast. Some of the service’s most notable editions include Richard Osman’s latest mystery The Bullet That Missed, read by Harry Potter actress Fiona Shaw, and Spare, narrated by the Duke of Sussex himself.

Many podcasts also have famous hosts — for instance, Michael Caine’s podcast Heist is about famous robberies, and then there’s Jack Whitehall’s Safe Space, which gets the most glamorous of celebrities opening up about their cringiest moments.

Audible has been around for many years now and its catalogue of exciting stories and gripping listens will only grow. Available to listen to on any device including phones, laptops and Amazon speakers, the service is the perfect entertainment for any commute, long journey or chore day.
