Hi SG,

Winter is on the way and to help you get in the holiday spirit our yearly event is live for 2023! That means it's your chance to showcase your creativity and unlock great giveaways. Wishing everyone well this holiday season!

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

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!

You can create normal invite only giveaways and link them to a giftboxed one.
But it's not the same.
Invite only giveaways are visible, and anybody can enter them if you have the link.
The box-giveaways are invisible/hidden if you're not logged into Steamgfits, and haven't opened the box.

So the box-ones needs to be opened, for a person to enter it. You don't get the same "security" from invite only giveaways.
But if you just want to surprise people - sure, feel free to create and link invite only giveaways to your holiday box one. The people finding your box will surely enjoy the extras :)

I meant can i add multiple games to a single giftbox? so for example i added 3 games
each person has 33% of getting the first game, 33% for the second etc..

You can make multiple copies of a single game (5 x Bad Rats)

But you can't put Bad Rats, Fortix and Skyrim into the same box. You'll need a different box for each different game.

Can we tell which games we did not find by peeking?

Nah, we must keep it all secret...

Peeked boxes have an eye icon under them
opened boxes have an opened padlock icon under them.
peeked and opened ones have both.

the peak in the box mechanic is better than steam's explore queue, you can find interesting games in there
