Currently, most of Facebook’s gifting options are food and lifestyle related, including cookies and cupcakes, stuffed animals and other relatively low-cost items.
But Tuesday’s wide Gifts roll-out also comes with another gifting option: Wine. And lots of it. Facebook has partnered with 16 different wine makers, letting folks send each other bottles of red and white over the network.

Sounds like a privacy problem. If I send a gift to X, I have to give Facebook their mailing address. Now they have their mailing address along with their likes/dislikes, and can sell that info to corporations to accurately spam their mailbox.

StoutFiles, actually you don't have to have the person's address. You order and pay, and then FB sends a notification to the giftee and actually gets the address directly from them. If they don't really like the gift, they can even choose something different of equal value. One of my customers is one of the companies partnered with FB - the orders are coming in slowly, but they are getting some.
