Gifting gems or POF to someone

My cousin and I used to play regularly back at launch. He hasn't played in years, since before HOT came out. Now he's thinking about jumping back into it and I'd like to get him POF as a late birthday present, but from what I've been reading it sounds like it's absolutely impossible to gift gems to someone else unless you hand them cash in person (he lives several states away so that's not going to happen). It also doesn't seem like I can just buy POF from the website since I already own it. What are my options here? Why does this have to be so difficult?

  • You can purchase Path of Fire from the official site and send the Serial Key to your friend/relative.
    You can not purchase it on your account, though; only on a new registered account.

  • So basically I have to create a fake account just to buy a copy of POF for someone else? That seems like a lot of unnecessary steps but I guess I'll have to try it.

    No you just need a second email not assosiated with a gw2 account, the key will be emailed to that email you cut and paste it over to your friend.
