Microsoft Store Digital Game Gifting Now Available for PC

After the recent success of gifting on Xbox One, Microsoft has aimed to expand that offering. Moving forward they have expanded digital gifting to include PC games and PC downloadable game content (e.g. map packs, skins). Further, all Xbox One games are now eligible for digital gifting.

Here’s how to start sending digital gifts in the Microsoft Store:
Head over to the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, on the Xbox One family of devices, or online, navigate to the product that you would like to purchase, select Buy as Gift, and enter the email address of the gift recipient. On Xbox One, you can choose a Gamertag from your list of Xbox Live friends.

The gift recipient will receive a code for their product along with instructions on how to redeem the code. On Xbox One, gift recipients will receive a system message with a clickable redemption button.

A few things in keep in mind as you’re gifting:
Gift purchasers can only buy two discounted products and a total of 10 discounted products every 14 days. There are no limits for gift purchases made at full price costs.

Gifting of Xbox 360 and Original Xbox games, pre-orders, free products, and consumable downloadable game content such as virtual currency is not allowed at this moment.

Gift recipients can only redeem gift tokens in the country or region where they were purchased.

It was continued by mentioning that additional options and ways to gift items may come in the future. It's a way Xbox is listening to fans and providing one of the most requested features from the user base. This will be a great additional way to purchase titles and share them with others.
