I am thinking of buying a nook for my daughter for Christmas. She is too young for a credit card. Should I purchase it as a gift or purchase it for myself than give it to her as a gift? Who's name should I register the nook under since I will be using my credit card to purchase her ebooks?

Keep in mind that no authorization is require to purchase books, and she will be free to purchase what she wants.
Personally, i would recommend getting it as a gift, letting her have her own account, and getting her a gift-credit card like a Visa or AMEX or something so there is a definite limit.
Unless of course you're ok with her having access to your credit card.
I'd say order it as a gift, then if you change your mind and want it set up with your account, you can always do that later. Not having it as a gift just saves you a step.

I got my son a Kindle and registered it my account but it is listed as "his" kindle. I was struggling with the same thing and I'm not sure how it works on B&N, but on there when he downloads an e-book it sends me an e-mail and this way I can keep track of what he's purchasing, but he can shop. The other option I considered was setting up his own account and funding it with gift cards. HTH
