How to gift in Fortnite

Before you start sending out gifts you first need to make sure that your account has two-factor authentication.

You can then go to the item shop and choose an item that you want to buy and once you have selected it you will get the option to buy as a gift.



There will then be an option to choose which friend you want to give the item to, as well as write an optional message for the recipient.

Your friend will then receive the item the next time they log into the game.

If you are looking to send a gift to someone then you need to be friends with them for at least 48 hours and you can only gift up to three items in a 24 hour period.

Epic Games has also confirmed that they are non-refundable and you can only gift an item that is currently available in the Item Shop.
