How do I generate a Gift Link now?

On the "Choose your games" page, you click a game, scroll down and click "gift to friend" instead of "get game". Then you see the usual region lock notification about countries that receive a different game version than you do or do not receive the game, and you can pick between generating a gift link or sending the game via email.
"Get game" will instantly reveal the key and NOT simply add the game to your Downloads page for this bundle.

Note: The guess / leak for Void Bastards is NOT included.

Second month and already more than 10 games. That's great to see. Better choices than last month too, I think.

I bought it in USA, but when I created a giftlink for Blasphemous, it listed 125 countries it couldn't be redeemed in: AE AF AL AM AO AR AZ BD BH BI BJ BO BR BT BW BY CD CF CG CI CL CM CN CO CR CU DO DZ EC EG EH ER ET GA GE GF GH GM GN GQ GT GW GY HK HN ID IL IN IQ IR JO JP KE KG KH KM KP KR KW KZ LA LB LK LR LS LY MA MD MK ML MM MN MO MR MW MX MY MZ NA NE NI NP OM PA PE PH PK PR PS PY QA RS RU RW SA SD SG SL SN SO SR SS SV SY SZ TD TG TH TJ TM TN TR TT TW TZ UA UG UY UZ VE VN YE ZA ZM ZW

Maybe this will help (scroll down to "Why are the region locks from the "Create a gift link" pop-up different than the ones mentioned on the SteamGifts thread corresponding to that bundle?").

If you're from USA, you get a ROW key, regardless of what the notification says.

Ugh...thank you so much for the pointer/explanation...I had to Fail a trade on barter because I thought my gift-link was region-locked (after verifying with this thread that it wouldn't be). I could have traded it after all!

Thanks again, for this and for everything!

Also, for what it's worth, steamlocked.com gives the same (wrong) warning. Bleh.

When I try to gift Shadow of the Tomb Raider it gives me a middle east warning, that the game can only be activated there, traders haven't agreed to take it due to this reason, can I ignore this warning?

First, check out the question and answer from the Humble Choice FAQ about "Why are the region locks from the 'Create a gift link' pop-up different than the ones mentioned on the SteamGifts thread corresponding to that bundle?"

Then, note the region locks for this bundle based on where the key is requested:

โš ๏ธ Region lock โš ๏ธ

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

RU/CIS + Turkey + India + Argentina + Brazil - Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Russian Federation, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan
Activates as "Shadow of the Tomb Raider [Game only] (RU/CIS+)"
Run-lock: can only be played in those countries
Everyone else: ROW (activates everywhere)

so the region lock notification can be safely ignored if it's redeemed in the Everyone else category?

If it was a key that was generated from a region that is in "everyone else", then the region lock notification can be ignored UNLESS you received some unique warning from Humble like you are saying elsewhere that differs from everything found so far. Then you would need to do research on a site like https://steamlocked.com/ which pulls from SteamDB to determine whether Steam has any subs with country banning or exclusivity for these extra countries you mentioned.

It shows this when I choose my country on the steamlocked site
Some versions of the game may be banned in your and these countries (Algeria Bahrain China Egypt Iraq Japan Jordan Kuwait Lebanon Libya Morocco Oman Palestine Qatar Saudi Arabia Tunisia United Arab Emirates Yemen)

If Humble's key redeem or gift link page actually gave you this warning:

CAN ONLY BE ACTIVATED in these countries (then it listed all middle east countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Kuwait, etc.. )

That is not consistent with any SubID's region restrictions, as there is no SubId (on steamlocked) that shows Jordan in "Countries allowed to activate:" or "Countries allowed to run:". There is only one sub that includes Jordan in a list of banned countries.

Any sub that does not have "Countries allowed to activate:", "Countries allowed to run:", or "Banned Countries" can often be activated on Steam from anywhere

It is possible that giftlink distribution in this case is restricted more than what Steam enforces for keys.

Are you from / did you purchase the bundle from any of these countries?

Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Russian Federation, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan

If yes - then only people who are from these countries can activate your key
If no - then anyone will be able to activate your key.

But to be sure, could you please paste here a screenshot of your gift link notification? It can be that Middle East receives a different type of notification than others and it hasn't been reported so far.

I redeemed the game into my account so I can't get that notification to show anymore, however I remember it was like this:
Note that this game CAN ONLY BE ACTIVATED in these countries (then it listed all middle east countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Kuwait, etc.. )
I did purchase the game from inside Jordan and I emailed humble support and they said they can't change the region locks
