Here are the steps to give a membership upgrade to another member. You can choose to give it anonymously and you can apply a discount coupon code if there are any available.

1. Click the Upgrade link on the main menu. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says "Gift Upgrade":


2. Start typing in the member's name. It will auto-complete. Press the Proceed... button.

3. You'll see the Upgrade you're buying, and the member's name. Click Gift Now...

4. Now you'll see the payment screen. Choose either PayPal or Stripe to process your payment.
If you want to give this anonymously, check the Gift Anonymously box.
If you have a discount coupon code, enter it in the box and click the Apply button.
Finally click Continue to finish the transaction.
