Planning a surprise? How exciting! If you don't want your recipient to receive a Gift Card immediately after purchasing it (for example, you want to wait until Christmas to reveal the gift) all you have to do is add your own email in the "Recipient's Email" field during checkout.
After purchasing the card, you will receive the Gift Card code to your email address. Whenever you're ready to reveal the gift to them, you can simply send your recipient the Gift Card code you received!
