Delaying gifting an app

Is there any way I can I buy an app now, but not gift it for a few weeks?

I ask this due to the number of sales, but still a month to Christmas - I just thought it would be a cheap, easy way out! (and the fact that I won't look cheap when the sale is over, if they check out the app price!)

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Gift the app to yourself for the sale price and then forward them the email whenever you want. The promo code should not expire (not 100% sure on that)

But at minimum they last 30 days. That's how long dev promos last anyway..

I often did this, as apple has not reduced the payment to creditcard only, shame on you apple!
I've chosen: print this gift... you get a nice card with code on it you can save with screenshot. anyways I got C&C in May or so and traded the code last week, and it still worked

Great. I may risk it with GTA then!

Hmm, I never thought of giving out apps as small Christmas presents. Perhaps I'll do that this year.
