Hi SG,

Holiday season 2022 has arrived and that means we're back with another event.

https://www.steamgifts.com/happy-holidays

To help with designing boxes this year, the giveaway creation page now includes a color picker so you can quickly incorporate solid colors into your designs. You can also adjust the opacity of colors using the slider at the bottom of the color picker. Of course, you still have the freedom to use images and GIFs if you're motivated and in the creative mood. I hope everyone has a great month and I look forward to seeing what the community comes up with this year!

How it works

  1. Creating a gift box and giveaway

    • To setup a giveaway, use the link above and click "Create a Holiday Giveaway".
    • The giveaway will start immediately and end on December 25.
    • The giveaway will be available to the entire community, although region and contributor level restrictions can still be configured.
    • The giveaway will appear as invite only on your profile and not be visible throughout the site.
    • Once created, you'll see your gift box in the link above and users will have a chance to open it to access the giveaway.
    • Please ensure your gift box design is appropriate for all ages and respectful of others in the community. Inappropriate designs will need to be removed along with the corresponding giveaway.
    • DLC and no CV games (those marked with a double asterisk in the giveaway list) cannot be given away in the event.
  2. Liking gift boxes

    • When you're viewing a gift box and you're a fan of the design, show your appreciation by clicking the "Like Design" button. You also have the option to browse all of the gift box designs you liked or view the most liked gift boxes in the community. Remember, the button is for liking the design of the box and not for rating the game inside.
    • If you're the creator of a box you'll see the number of likes your design received instead of the button.
  3. Peeking in gift boxes

    • You can peek in 10 gift boxes each day.
    • When you peek in a gift box, you'll see a random number of games (2-4) and one of them is contained within the gift box. You can use this information to help decide whether or not you want to open the gift box.
  4. Opening gift boxes

    • You can open 5 gift boxes each day until December 25.
    • When you open a gift box, you unlock the giveaway link and are able to enter the giveaway. Unlocked gift boxes are highlighted in green on the holiday page above, and you can freely revisit those gift boxes and giveaways.
    • You will see a notification if you cannot open a gift box. This could happen when the giveaway contained within is region restricted, when you do not meet the contributor level requirements, when you already own the game, when you have previously won the game, or when you have been blacklisted by the giveaway creator.
    • You cannot join a giveaway by only having the direct link. If you did not open the corresponding gift box, but received the link from someone else, you will see an error when attempting to view the giveaway.

No spoilers. Please do not share what games you found when opening or peeking inside of a gift box.

Happy holidays!

This looks great :)

Especially if the creators try to give hints to the game with the design.
Spending already time to figure out what could be in those :D

Not a clue for this one: https://www.steamgifts.com/happy-holidays/TrMfH
But might maybe just otter dissapointment :D

Question: how to find the URL for the game page on steam? The link I copied doesn't work.

When you're on a giveaway, if there still is a Steam page for it (some have been removed over time) then just clicking the image will take you to the page in a new tab, so you don't have to copy/paste anything. If clicking the picture takes you to the front page of the Steam store, that means the store page for the item has been removed. This also applies when you're making a giveaway, as you type in the name of the item there will be a link that appears, you can click it to open a new tab with the Steam page, or if it doesn't exist it'll take you to the front page of the store. The winner can still activate the key and receive the item as normal even if there is no page anymore.

Is only Imgur allowed? It's not possible to make an account there from every country.
