In this season full of joy and fun, you may feel the urge to really get into the spirit of the season do a little giving yourself.

The best part is that all of these items can be found in-game. Check out the picks below:


Transmogrification Outfit

If you have friends who like to play dress up with their characters a Transmogrification outfit would be the perfect holiday gift. Simply look for one of the many Bind on Equip options out there and get to collecting. Even though Bind on Equip gear is more limited than others, you are sure to be able to find an outfit that will appeal just about everyone. For example, the Buccaneer's Regalia set is comprised of the following:


  • Buccaneer's Vest
  • Buccaneer's Pants
  • Buccaneer's Bracers
  • Buccaneer's Chest
  • Buccaneer's Boots


This set is fairly easy to collect, all BoE and will turn any toon into a super cool pirate. Other great transmog BoE set ideas include the Aurora Regalia, the Wizard Regalia, and the Mageweave Regalia. Don't limit yourself to these though. With a simple Google search you can find tons of other options that will hopefully produce just the right outfit, as well as, the perfect gift.

Consumables

No matter if you raid, PvP, or just quest, consumables are something you probably use. Food, Potions, Flasks, Elixirs or even just a stack of Fortune Cookies are all great gift ideas that are sure not to go to waste. Or if you wanted to hit the more fun side of things, consider giving out some of the potions or foods that have interesting side effects. Great examples of these are Savory Deviate Delight, a fish dish that turns the player into a ninja or the Potion of Illusion, which transforms the player into the exact replica of another player. No matter if you choose to go the fun route or the more practicle one, consumables are gifts that every player will appreciate seeing in their mailbox this holiday season.


“Alt” Starter Package

For those of you with friends who seem to have an addiction to creating alternate characters, an alt started package would be the perfect gift. Inside you can place things that alts tend to be without in their initial starting period. Ideas for things for the alt package include:


  • Fishing Poles
  • Bags
  • Mining Pick
  • Blacksmith Hammer
  • Gold


These are of course just a few examples. Simply sit back and think back to when you were a brand new character and just starting out. What did you need? What do you wish you had? Give these items to your favorite alt lover as gifts and you are sure to bring a smile to their face.


Companion Pets

Everyone loves a cute, adorable, fluffy, companion pet. Especially now that you can use them to battle it out to the bloody end against other pets. So it makes sense that these would make perfect holiday gifts for most World of Warcraft players. Companion pets come in all shapes and sizes and in varying degrees of difficulty to collect. Buy them on the Auction House, farm them, or collect them from the wild. Go for super simple easy to collect pets or farm up that unique, hard to find pet that your friend has been dying to get. No matter where they come from, they are sure to bring a smile to the face of that special someone on your list.


Black Dragon Whelp


Coal

If you don't want to spend a lot of time on gifts, but still want to send something out to your in-game friends to let you know you are thinking of them; send coal. While this item is pretty much totally useless, unless your friend is a total Grinch, they will find humor in this holiday appropriate gift. Even if your friend has been exceptionally nice, don't discriminate, send coal to all your friends naughty and nice alike. Don't forget the gift wrap!


That wraps up our list of the top 5 in-game gifts for World of Warcraft players. Remember, no matter what type of gift you end up handing out, it is ultimately the thought that counts.
