Wii points query

I have 500 points on my wii account on my wii, got them on cards and transferred them to the wii. I no longer require them, as I am planning on taking Game up on their kind offer.

I was planning on selling them on here, as I heard you could 'gift' them to someone, but I had a quick look this morning and couldn't find the option.

Is there a way to gift my points to someone, if so what options do I go for? Thanks!

Yeah, I just noticed, couldn't find the original thread, may still sell anyway as never use it. So if anyone knows a way....

You can't gift the points, but you can buy a game with them and send it as a 'gift' to someone, rather than downloading it yourself. You would need the friend code for the person you are sending it too.

Here's a link showing how to do it:

Thanks Dan, rep given. Also can a mod clarify, am allowed to sell a wii game bought with my points as a gift? I know the rules have recently changed and I don't know if this is allowed...thanks.
i doubt very much you will be able to sell the game on, but have reported this thread for you for a response
The answer is no unfortunately, as per their T&Cs :
