Purchasing an REI membership card for someone else

I am buying a membership online to give as a gift. Does it matter that my name and email is associated to the card and not the person's that I am giving it to? Thanks!

Thanks for reaching out and what a thoughtful gift! We do not have the ability to purchase a membership as a gift on We recommend calling our sales and customer service team at 1-800-426-4840 and they can get the gift membership set up for you. Please bear in mind that we no longer use physical member cards and your gift will be delivered to the recipient via email.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
