The first step is to make sure that both you and your friend are members of Renderosity, otherwise they won't be able to download the item you bought them.
If the recipient (the person you're buying for) has a public wishlist on their homepage, you can click the "Add to Cart" button direct from their homepage, and proceed directly to the checkout step.
If not, go to the product page for the item you want to buy as a gift. Just above the "Add to Cart" button is a space for you to put your friend's username. Enter their username (not their real name or email, it must be their Renderosity username.) As soon as you enter their username, a little window will open for you to enter any message you want to send, for example "Happy Birthday!" or "Thanks for all your help!". When you've finished entering your message, click the Add to Cart button.
At the next screen, review your purchase to make sure you're happy with everything, and then press the Check Out button. You will now proceed through Checkout process in the normal way.
If you are gifting a physical item, such as a CD collection or a book, you must enter the recipient's
address in the "Shipping Address" section, otherwise the item will come direct to your home.
Once you have completed payment, the recipient will receive an email advising them that they have a new gift, and how to download it.
