How to Gift Items in Dota 2?

Dota 2 is not just a game, but a network where the community bonds together and allows their relationship to strengthen. In the gaming world, a way through which you can strengthen your bond with other gamers is by giving gifts to other players.

Although the process of giving a gift to a Dota 2 friend is pretty straightforward, there is still a prerequisite that must be taken care of in order to send/receive a gift to your Dota 2 community.

The first condition of sending a gift to another player is that the specific player must be your friend in the game for the past year.  However, this condition can be reduced to a minimum of 30 days in one case. You must have the Mobile Authenticator of Steam Guard activated on your Steam account, in order to bring down the restriction to 30 days.

If you are a pro at this game, and have been playing this game for quite some time, then making long term friends at Steam won’t be a problem for you.

Now let us look further to learn how gift items can be traded in Dota 2.

If you are familiar with the dynamics of the game, then you must agree that the process of sending gifts to other uses in Dota 2 is very simple.

The standard procedure of sending gifts to your Dota 2 friends can be done by using the gaming app itself.

Firstly, you have to open the Dota 2 gaming app. Then you have to select the Armory icon, which is located at the uppermost corner on the left side of your screen.

Selling Gifts in Dota 2:

Selling a gifted item to earn money sounds like a great idea, as it can add worth to your account. The best way of selling a gifted item is by using the Steam market, as you can find potential buyers in the face of other players who would be interested in buying the gifted item that you are selling. The fun part is that you will always have the chance to negotiate the price on which the item could be sold or bought.

However, it must be sold at a price that justifies that actual value or worth of the item that you are selling.  Also, that price has to be decided mutually between the seller and the buyer.

The procedure of selling a gifted item is relatively simple. You just have to join a community thread, display the item that needs to be sold, and then wait for a buyer to approach you so that you can lock the deal mutually.
