Insert proverbial "me too" post here.
Having now bought my own pre-order copy, I wanted to pre-order an additional SIX copies of the deluxe edition for friends/relatives.
Origin must not want, (and are now not going to receive), the THREE HUNDRED AND NINETY QUID I was trying to give them?

I had the same problem and contacted the support chat.
They said to log into your friend's account and purchase it for him as it is not possible to gift a game you already purchased for you own.
I'll probably do it this way to gift my bro the SimCity Deluxe Edition.
Hope to help you!

Just went through this myself. Beyond frustrated that you cannot gift a download version of a game. That is just an extremely odd business practice, and anti-consumer. Guess I'll juist buy it through Amazon and gift it that way.

Proved you wrong!
I am excited to share with all of you that the Origin gifting and wishlist function is now available:
And please do share if you have any cool stories about connecting with friends due to gifting, or something exciting that is on your wishlist!
