All CS:GO players know that the holiday season can be a hectic time to buy gifts for your friends. You’re busy and in a hurry, so who has time to go down long video games store pages to find the perfect gift? That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide on why you should visit CS:GO Marketplace this Christmas. This post is sponsored by CS:GO Marketplace; all opinions are our own, of course!


What’s better than gifting someone a virtual knife or rifle skin? No need for wrapping paper or pesky shipping costs, just one click and you’re done. CS GO gaming items are all right here, right now.


But what’s even better than these gaming skin items is the ability to gift a player something you know they want and won’t find elsewhere. The first thing that comes to mind is always the top three items: Counter Terrorist, my precious! And, of course, the most popular of them all: the AWP rifle skin. These items are extremely popular, and it’s no surprise—the AWP skin is easily one of the best rifles in the game.


These are, of course, just a few examples—there are hundreds of skins to choose from, so you can buy something unique and special for your favorite skinport CS:GO fan this Christmas.


Another great thing about CS:GO trading is that it’s all done right in-game; there’s no extra software or accounts to set up. When you’re ready to trade, just click the ‘Trade Up’ button on the items you want to gift and fill out all of the information on the pop-up trading page, submit it and get back to winning matches!


When you want to gift an item, just click the ‘Trade Up’ button.


Much of what can be traded in CS:GO are cosmetic items with no impact on gameplay, so there’s no need to worry about the person you’re buying for already having that knife or skin. If you’re feeling generous, you can buy a whole treasure chest of cosmetic items for your family at once and let them open it like a Christmas present. Or if you just want to give everyone something special, this is a great way to do it!


Remember that all of these trading offers can’t be found anywhere else—giftable skins and knives are only sold on CSGO Marketplace and nowhere else.


We hope you enjoy browsing our CS:GO trade it offers this holiday season and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas! Can’t wait to see your trade-up offers in-game.
