Gifts


Some people purchase new memberships or membership renewals as a gift for someone else. The easiest way to give a gift membership or membership renewal is to set a shipping address for the gift recipient on the shipping method page of the checkout procedure. We recommend creating an account on this site if you have not yet done so and log in before purchasing a membership gift. When you checkout, use the "go to checkout" button rather than the PayPal button so you can easily set the shipping address; you can still pay by credit card or PayPal. Please add the recipients email address and FEBT member number (if you know them) in the box labeled "Special Instructions or Comments About Your Order". For new membership gifts, the new FEBT membership number will be provided to the recipient by the FEBT Membership Office.
