Can I buy apps for a Kindle before it's activated?

I'm so technologically challenged so I need your help ladies. My mom is getting the Kindle Fire for my dau for Christmas. I wanted to buy some apps for it so she can use it right away when she gets it. Can I do that w/out opening it first? Thanks in advance for your patience on what some would think is a simple question & your help bringing me into this century! lol :)

  • You could get her an amazon gift card, but you can't buy apps without opening it. There's enough free stuff available that I've spent very little on books/apps

  • You have to open it to get apps. There is enough stuff on it she will have things to do when she first gets it. Also if you have an amazon account set up ahead of time it makes getting apps free or paid, very easy.
