Gift Subscription

I'm building a subscription based site using Commerce License and there's a requirement to allow existing users to purchase a gift subscription to the site.

So they put in an email address and buy an annual subscription. An email is then sent to that address allowing them to register the pre-paid account on the site.

I've looked at coupons and gift cards but nothing seems to quite fit.

Any suggestions on how I might be able to build this functionality?

If anyone else is looking for this functionality and stumbles acorss this, I solved it by using commerce_gv to issue a Gift Card for the amount of the subscription.

It handles the email functionality, leaving redemtion to commerce_coupon.

The added benefit I got from this approach is that somebody buys a gift card for a six month subscription to my site, it can be used as part payment for an annual subscription, so the gift cards now allow for an up sell. Buying a specific six month subscription would now allow for that.
