Microsoft store /xbox credit (Apps and Games)

I was credited with £50 to my Microsoft store account. I've tried many times but the credit can apparently only be used on Microsoft Xbox live, or the App store. I don't have a Xbox or Microsoft mobile. I do have a Surface but loathed to spend £50 in the app store for stuff I don't need/want. Does anyone know of any neat tricks or way around this so that I can either purchase a Xbox game or Xbox credit to give to a family member?

Put your account on their Xbox and set as home and buy what they want so they can play??

would they then have to keep my account on their Xbox to play anything that is downloaded or can they download a game then go back to their account and still play?

You can add someone to your "family" and I believe you can then top up their account - not sure if you can transfer from one account to another or whether it has to be a top up from a debit card / pre-paid code - account.microsoft.com/family. Take a look, may suit your needs.
