To gift an item, click Gift instead of Buy Now on the item’s page. On the next screen, you can select the recipient from your Blizzard friends list. After the order is complete, your friend can claim your gift from their gifts page on the Blizzard website or in the Blizzard desktop app.

Note: Gift processing may take a few hours. Once the purchase is processed, your recipient will receive an email within 72 hours with instructions to claim their gift.

Sending Key Codes

Some products have the option to enter your friend's email address instead. If you use this option, we’ll send a key code to their email address, and you’ll receive a purchase receipt at your registered Blizzard email address.

If you entered the wrong email address, you can find the key code for your purchase on the Transaction History page once processing completes. You can copy this code and send it to your friend.

Your friend must have a Blizzard account to claim a game key. If you gift them a World of Warcraft pet, mount, item, or game time, they must have a World of Warcraft license in good standing (not banned or suspended) attached to their Blizzard account.

Note: You can't gift World of Warcraft character services, guild services, in-game items from Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone (excluding card packs), or subscriptions. Gifting is not available for all currencies or payment methods, and you cannot gift items to console versions of our games.
