When you're short on time and need to buy a last minute gift, then choosing credit for an online service like the iTunes Store can be a real life-saver. Apple provides several methods to buy iTunes Store credit ranging from the usual physical gift card that you've probably seen in your local store, all the way to instant gifts that can either be printed out in certificate form (to give in person) or emailed.
These credit gifts aren't limited to just digital music (songs and albums) or audiobooks either. There are many other types of digital products that the recipient can use their gift credit for such as apps, videos (music and TV), games, ebooks, and more.
For a more detailed look, we've written an article that showcases the different ways you can buy iTunes credit and even gift a particular song, album, app, or playlist for that personal touch.
