Can I buy Live as a gift for someone?

It is possible to order a full Live license for someone else without spoiling the surprise. 

If you have an Ableton.com account and purchase Live, the serial number(s) will be automatically registered to your email address. After that, send us a license transfer request and we can move the serial to the recipient's account

If you don’t have an account, you can still order using your own email address without being logged into Ableton.com. After purchasing, the serial number will be sent to you via email and you can forward that to the recipient so they can register it to their own account.

It is not possible to purchase an upgrade serial as a surprise, because you would need to be logged into their account to access the upgrade pricing.
