Fortnite’s latest update gets in the holiday spirit by introducing the long-awaited gifting feature, which allows players to purchase items for one another. The current iteration is a test that only lasts a week, but it gives you a good sense of what you can expect once the feature is permanent.
From now on, buying anything in the shop will give you two options: one to keep your purchase and another to give it away to a friend. Any gift can have a custom message attached to it and can only be sent to players who have been your friend for at least 48 hours. You can only send a gift if you’ve multifactored your account security (which you should do anyway), and there’s a three-gift limit per 24-hour period. Gifts aren’t refundable, and you can set your account to not allow gifts from other players.
