Will never happen.
Did not read OP. This isn't what he's suggesting at all.

OP, The reason they haven't implemented ip gifts is because they have several current systems that are implemented purely for the concept of one account played by one person. Imagine if you could gift, players would make newb accounts all day long and just transfer the ip to the main account from each win of the day ip.

With this system, the current 4-day win ip boost and ip wins of the day would easily create an ability for people to play smurfs until they can afford a champion and send it to the main. This system, unless it was 5x normal price, would still highly endorse players to play on a smurf rather than their real account.

In that case, have the IP Gift option only available to accounts with X number of games played, (I'd say 30 games or so, just as an example) in order to combat this.

And yes, the option to use other accounts to buy your main account things does exist, however having the IP price be much more expensive than the original prices, this method becomes inefficient.

Also, for clarification, an IP Gift is not a gift of IP, it is the gift of something purchased with IP. If I send you an IP Gift, you would then have a champion, a rune, or a rune page---not IP.

To fix all the "create smurfs who would abuse the system and gift IP to their main account" problem, make it so the recipient of an IP gift can only be summoner level 20 or lower, for instance. I mean the concept of the idea, as I understand from the OP, is to help newer players own champions that they like. It is not, for example, for my friend with 500 normal wins to help me (level 30 with 150 wins) buy characters, so by restricting the recipients of the IP gifts, you can solve the problem. Not sure how easy/difficult it would be to implement, but it seems like a good idea.
