Sorry for the stupid question. How to GIFT an app (game) on iOS?

iOS 11.0.3

Can't find any option for gifting an app in the iOS App Store on newest iPad Pro and iPhone 7. Anyone?

Thx in advance for enlightenment.

When I open an app’s page on my Air1 with iOS11, in the topright I have a round blue button with 3 white dots. When I tap that, I get a menu with the “Gift” option.
Does that work for you?

Ok, that's weird. I didn't know that there are apps you can't gift, apparently. So, sorry, not much more I can do to help you.
Best of luck, and if you find out what's going on, drop a line here.

It was easy. You can't gift free apps. Thanks anyway. Stupid me.
