Need some help buying a book for delivery in Argentina

Hi, I would like to buy a Spanish-language book about Frank Lloyd Wright as a gift for a family member who lives in Buenos Aires. The title is available on Mercadolibre, but there are two obstacles to making the purchase: (1) the site doesn't seem to allow a gift order addressed to someone other than the purchaser; and (2) a DNI number is required to use a credit or debit card. I'm in the US and don't have a DNI number.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to get around these issues and perhaps other online resources that can ship in-country. Thanks in advance for your advice!

Best regards,
Dave

Can you obtain the book, in Spanish, via a service such as AbeBooks, and ship it down?

Better World Books sells second hand books and ships to Argentina successfully. I can confirm first hand and have done so on 3 different occasions now.
