If you’re looking for yet another way to spend your money digitally — and you probably are, since it’s the holiday season — Valve today is giving you one more way to do so: by giving gifts via Steam.
Just a few months ago, one of the largest updates in Steam’s three-year history introduced a set of new community features. As of today, Steam users have the ability to purchase any game in Steam’s growing collection and send it as a gift to anyone in the world. A how-to on giving gifts via Steam is included below.
To send a gift, customers simply select a game on Steam and indicate that the purchase is a gift at checkout. An e-card is then delivered directly to the recipient’s inbox. If the recipient is new to Steam, they’ll receive everything they need to get started.
So there you go…another way to spend some money and give the gift of gaming this holiday season.
