Microsoft has 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.
Last Fall, the Microsoft Store enabled gifting of select Xbox One digital games, Xbox One downloadable game content (durables only), and Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.
Here's how to start sending digital gifts in the Microsoft Store:
Visit 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.
Keep in mind that 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.
Microsoft does not allow gifting of Xbox 360 and Xbox original games, pre-orders, free products, and consumable downloadable game content such as virtual currency is not allowed.
Gift recipients can only redeem gift tokens in the country or region where they were purchased.
All games are available for gifting today.
