Not sure if you can "gift" a song but you can purchase a gift card from your iPad.
Tap the iTunes icon. At the bottom of the iTunes window tap Support. Then tap *iTunes Gift Options* then tap *Purchase an iTunes Gift Card*.
In order to gift a song from your iPad, you would click the arrow next to the song’s Buy button, choose Gift This Song from the pop-up menu but I don't see the arrow on the iPad's iTunes window.
Yes, i know about the gift card. But you do know about the "send as gift" option, right?
In the iTunes on Mac Os, you could choose a song or album or app and can send it to some one else as a gift. I've done it quiet a few times.
I'm just unable to do this on my iPad!! Either ios don't have this functionality or I'm missing a step?
We cross posted.
As I mentioned in my last post, I don't see the "arrow" option for individual songs, just gift cards.
Might be some help here from, "iTunes Cards and Codes" http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/
Thanks, I've found this link for the "send as gift" from apple support :
so it is an available option and I wasn't dreaming !!!
But still can't figure out how to get this on iPad?
I'm missing something so simple , I'll probably hit my forehead with a big "Doh!!" one I find out...
You're not missing anything. Gifting is not possible from the iTunes nor App Store app. You have to use iTunes on a computer. I have no idea whether this will change in a future update, though it seems like an obvious thing to add at some point. You can, if you wish, express your desire for this feature via Apple's feedback page:

Hope this Helps!
