Is it possible to give someone access to Origin Access? Can I purchase it as a gift?

Nope. Due to it being a subscription service you can not gift it. 

 

The alternative would be to go the old school route and give someone the money to buy it.

Isn't that kind of a stupid business decision? If someone wants to buy Access for someone who would not normally pay for it...uh Isn't EA just turning down money and the opportunity to sell their products?

Yes it is stupid and they are turning down money. I hate this. I want to buy a 1 year subscription for a friend and I can't. This makes no sense to me.

@McSkookum Currently, we do not offer giftable subscriptions to other users. I will pass your feedback on to the team as this is something that is constantly being looked at.

*, I want to give my girlfriend Bf5 as a gift. 

 

Steams system is good where you can give gifts, would be awesome if it was possible here also.

@VaaltynBossieIf you just want to buy her the one game, that is already possible. Just click the drop-down arrow next to "Get the Game" (or "View in Library" if you already have it yourself), and there you'll see an option to purchase as a gift. Once the game becomes available of course, as currently you cannot buy Battlefield V yet.

@VaaltynBossie Yes I don't think it's available for preorder yet. But once it is, there should be an option to buy as gift.
