Most balloon companies offer gift certificates so you can give a flight to your favorite person. Certificates are a very thoughtful gift since the recipient can schedule their balloon ride themselves. Certificates also work well when you are in a different part of the country. You may be in San Diego, California, but you can buy a balloon ride gift certificate for someone in Nebraska.
Some company websites allow you to purchase and print a gift certificate instantly, while others may require a phone call to make a purchase.

Famous Balloon Quote:
The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
— William Pene du Bois, 'The Twenty-one Balloons.'
What are the ropes for?
The crown line on top of the balloon is used to stabilize the balloon during inflation. "Tether lines" are used to tie the balloon down for display purposes. A "drop line" is sometimes released by the pilot just before landing so the ground crew can pull the balloon to a desired location.
