@mosdl: How do you do this? When I try to send a gift it only offers me a menu for friends (from Steam) and i cant even send to them couse they don't have the game.

I think the email option only works for giftable games, not giftable items.

Why do you wanna send an item to someone that isn't your friend?

I don't believe so. Not really sure why you'd want to gift something to a stranger unless you want the achievement/trophy.

For the achievement it has to be someone on your friends list who has played the game, and for someone going for the S rank and not having anyone on my friends list play the game, it's somewhat frustrating. If only someone playing this game would be willing to add clumthumb on xbox live so he could gain this achievement...
