How to Gift Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC Games Digitally

Microsoft’s game gifting feature was rolled out last year, but it was only limited to the Xbox One users, allowing them to gift games to their friends. But unfortunately, the feature came with a limitation on which game you could gift. Now, Microsoft has removed these restrictions and users can now gift all Xbox One and Microsoft Store PC games digitally.

But what if you don’t really know how to do this? Well, the gifting is pretty simple tough. You can simply follow the below instructions to be able to gift a game digitally.

  • Head over to the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, your Xbox One, 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.
  • 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.
  • Gifting of Xbox 360 and Xbox original games, pre-orders, free products, and consumable downloadable game content such as virtual currency is not allowed.

Microsoft’s digital gifting is really a great feature if you want to gift a game from Microsoft store digitally to any of your friends. However, if you haven’t tried the feature yet, you can give it a try if you want to gift a copy of the game any of your relatives.
