To gift a fan-club membership you need to create an account for the person you are gifting the membership to. Make sure to register with that person's email address because the membership will go into effect automatically at the time of purchase and will be associated with the email addresses used to purchase it. If you place the membership order while logged onto your own account it will just add a year of membership onto your account.
Some memberships are all-digital and others come with items. Membership items are often on pre order for several weeks so expected ship times are included in the item description that you see prior to placing your order. Please read the item description carefully in case you have a certain date in mind that you would like to gift the recipient with any items that may come with the membership.
