Hey all. Just a small update from the Top Men. You can now gift yearly Whiskey Media premium memberships to your family and friends. Simply go to http://auth.whiskeymedia.com/gift/ and fill out the form. Once completed, you'll receive a code and instructions that you can pass to your buddy so they can redeem their membership. Note that gift codes are only available in the Yearly subscription format, but do come with $15 store coupon as well. For those members who already have subscriptions, redeeming a code will extend your next billing date out an extra year, so it's a great gift for everybody.

This is a cool idea ripped off from Steam, but if GiantBomb becomes more like Steam they are on the right track.

When you narrow it down to specifically gamers and digital, well played my memory doesn't serve well enough on how long you've been able to gift steam games for. Regardless, there was definately in game gifting for gamers beforehand, and without narrowing it down so specifically gifting is actually a worldwide thing that people have been doing for a while now.

Excellent stuff. Would like a monthly option though, for larger-scale mass, random donations. Can probably convert some more Whiskey lifers this way!

[EDIT - Ah you replied to me on Twitter. Thanks!]

You've been able gift subscriptions on IGN since ages ago actually (not sure if they've since gotten rid of it; it used to be a nice sign of respect/appreciation on their forums). Glad to see Giantbomb gaining this feature too.

You've also been able to gift games on Steam for years. The gifting of hats and other bullshit is recent.

Sounds like a very generous and nice idea,not gonna sit there and panter and beg like most people will for a gifted membership if someone gives me one then ill be thankful for it. and a plus is the people who do gift someone with that get a coupon so kind of a win-win situation?

He plays the same games I do, but on a machine that costs 3 times as much. That's how you know he's a real smart guy.
