Just in time for the holiday season, the Pottermore e-book shop has added gifting options for Harry Potter e-books and audiobooks. The gift e-books or audiobooks can be bought any time from up to six months in advance through the day on which they should be delivered. The books may be downloaded up to eight times each. All Pottermore e-books are multiformat and DRM-free.

Pottermore has also just made the tie-in story collection The Tales of Beedle the Bard available as an e-book for the first time, for £3.99 in the U.K. and $5.99 in the U.S., with a portion of the proceeds (“at least 40%”) to be donated to J.K. Rowling’s children’s charity Lumos, just as with the print edition.

It’s gratifying that so many e-book outlets have taken advantage of the ease of sending digital content anywhere to provide gifting options for their content. And with more people than ever starting to read e-books, it means gift options for the stay-at-home holiday shopper are better than ever.
