You can give an Amazon device as a gift by purchasing a new device from Amazon or by gifting a device you already own.
You can purchase Amazon devices from Amazon and mark them as a gift with or without a message to be included for your recipient.
To purchase an Amazon device as a gift:
If you forgot to select This is a gift and the device hasn't shipped yet, you can update the gift settings of the order from Your Account.
If you forgot to select This is a gift and the device has already shipped, deregister the device from your account by going to Manage Your Content and Devices, selecting the Your Devices tab, and then clicking the Actions button and Deregister next to the device you purchased as a gift.
If you want to give a device you already own to someone else, you’ll need to deregister the device from your Amazon account and reset it to factory defaults. Resetting the device to factory defaults removes all content and personal information from the device, and deregisters it from your account.
Note: Content on a device cannot be sold or given as a gift. You can continue to download your purchased content on other devices and reading applications registered to your account.
Alexa features and services may not work outside the U.S., United Kingdom, Austria, or Germany.
If you are not sure which device you have, refer to Which Kindle E-reader Do I Have?.

To verify that your device is no longer registered to your Amazon account, go to Manage Your Content and Devices and click the Your Devices tab. If the device is still listed, select the device, and then click Deregister in the Actions menu next to the device name.
