It's the Season of giving.

One of the most requested features in Fortnite has been the ability to gift items to other players.  With the release of version 6.31 Fortnite players can now gift items that they purchase in the item shop.  When going into the Item Shop in Fortnite Battle Royale you now will see a new option to buy an item as a gift.

To gift items there are some requirements that need to be met.  First you’ll need to have enabled 2-Factor Authentication with your account to keep it secure.
