1- First, create an Apple ID here. Even if you do not have an iDevice, you will need an Apple ID to be able to shop on the App Store.
2- Second, download and run iTunes
3- Login to iTunes with the account you created in step 1
4- When you login for the first time you will see a message saying “This Apple ID has not been used with the iTunes Store.

5- Click “Review” and follow the steps to get to the payment information screen

6- Complete the payment information. A verification eMail will be sent to you.

7- Click “Verify Now” link in the verification eMail, then on the page that opens sign in to verify your eMail address. Your Apple ID is now ready to use.

8- Return to iTunes Store. Now you can buy and gift iOS applications using your Apple ID and iTunes.

If you don't know how to search, find and gift Apps using iTunes follow the steps below:

1- Type the name of the App into the search box in the upper right corner (iTunes 11.1.4.62)

2- Click the App that you want to gift in the search results. Be careful! There are 2 sets of results for both iPad Apps and iPhone Apps.

3- Click on the little arrow Next to the price tag and click “Gift This App”

4- Fill in the information in the “Send an iTunes Gift” screen and click “Next”
In the below screenshot I have cut the screen not to advertise the game I am gifting so you won't see the Next buttonĀ 

5- On the next screen select a theme for your gift card and click Next

6- Finally, click “Buy Gift” and confirm your gift

Hope this helps someone.

Good luck,
Serdar.
