The Gift of Giving is magical snow mixed with snow imp vomit, and was a reward given to players during A Stray in a Manger after successfully finding all four dogs, adopting one of them, and choosing a home for it in one of four locations. Upon opening when active, the Gift of Giving may contain a Santa sack, accessories to decorate a doghouse with and also stocking fillers, which could be things such as Purple sweets, holy biscuits, or snowballs. The Gift of Giving cannot be banked, and the inactive version may be re-obtained from the snow imp if it is lost or destroyed.
To reactivate the Gift of Giving, a player must trade their Gift of Giving for another player's Gift of Giving. Doing this reactivates it so that it can be opened and traded again. Players can do this process as many times as they like. Many players trade at World 2 by the Draynor lodestone (near the snow imp). Hopping worlds resets the list of people you have traded with, allowing you to trade with them again after the hop.
- Although monkey nuts, purple sweets, oranges and holy biscuits are members items, players could still obtain them from the Gift of Giving on free to play worlds.
