If you buy the character bound mount, you can take it out of YOUR item claim and trade the book to him.

However, if you buy the account bound lion, no, there is no way to gift it or trade it to him as far as I know.

This is correct. Only the character bound mount is tradeable, the account bound one shows up in the "Account Items" tab in Item Claim, and those items will be available to all of your current and future character created, but they cannot be traded.
