    From time to time I come across an app I think my daughter would like, was thinking of 'Gifting' it to her after I already purchased for myself.

    We have family sharing set up; but when I go through the process it says it will charge my card immediately... but I've already bought for myself.


    I realize now I can just send the link, but I think the gifting process should check the email address you sending to and as Family Organizer, allow you to 'push' content to iPads under your family.

    If you have family sharing setup she should be able to download it - no need to gift it to her.
