Normally, when you buy an eBook from a retailer online, the eBook is downloaded to the account of your electronic reader app (such as Apple Books or Nook) and is not transferable to another person's account. If you would like to gift an eBook to someone, there is another way. You can purchase it from this website by adding the recipient's email address (instead of your email). The eBook is sent automatically to the recipient's account. All they have to do is click on the eBook. Their electronic reader app will automatically open it for them. Be sure to send them a message about the gift!
