Today I’m going to talk about how to gift games on Steam. To get started with this quick tutorial, make sure you are logged into your Steam account

  1. Once you’re logged in, go to the Steam store and locate the game you would like to send as a gift.
  2. Add the game to your cart and then notice that the options “Purchase for Myself” or “Purchase as a gift” appear.

  4. Select “Purchase as a gift” and a list of your friends on Steam will appear. You must be friends with them on Steam for them to appear on the list.
  5. Go through the list and find the friend you would like to gift the game to.  There will be a message next to their name if they already own the game. There is an option to edit your cart if the friend already owns the game. 
  6. Note: You can only send a game to one friend at a time. You would repeat the purchase process for each friend.
  7. If you want to send the gift on a certain day (ex: birthday or holiday), you can schedule the delivery for a certain day.
