“Show your Habbo friends just how much you care and send them a gift from the Habbo Catalogue. ANY Catalogue item can be sent as a gift to ANY Habbo, all you need is their Habbo name! Buying an item as a gift couldn't be simpler... Buy an item from the Catalogue in the normal way, but tick 'buy as a gift'. Tell us which Habbo you want to give the gift to and deliver it striaght to their hand.”

A Gift is an item of furniture given by one player to another. When a player buys any item from the catalogue, they are given the option to buy the item for another player in the form of a gift. To do this, the Habbo buying the furniture must press the 'Buy as Gift' button instead of pressing the 'Buy' button on the popup, after clicking 'Buy' the first time.

In V43 an Update was added enabling the sender to choose Gift Wrapping. This came in two forms - basic or advanced, which cost 1 Credit. Advanced wrapping meant they could choose personalised colours. Achievements regarding gifts were also added in this update - both giving and receiving gifts adds to a player's Achievement Score, and gives two different Badges.

Presents are not tradeable. However, if the receiver opens the present, they are able to trade the furniture within. Any furniture is purchasable as a gift, with the exception of Marketplace items, Duckets furniture and furniture with additional Diamonds.

Gift Wrapping

Gift Wrapping was introduced in the UK in January 2010 as part of V43. It gave users the option to apply some custom gift wrapping to presents sent to other users. There are many combinations which can be created through gift wrapping which adds a personal feel to each present that is gift wrapped. However, with customising comes a cost of 1 Credit and Habbo have given the option to disable this feature, allowing users to send Gifts with free wrapping.

These are the standard gift colors you can get/give:

All the other gift wrappings (with the exception of the valentines box) can be customized with a decoration. This does not add an extra cost to the gift. The decorations you can add to them are:

  • Red silk knot ribbon
  • Gold silk knot ribbon
  • Blue silk knot ribbon
  • Pink Bow
  • Green Bow
  • White Bow
  • Plain Ribbon
  • Organic Ribbon
  • Suspenders
  • Chains

Achievements

Gift Giver

In this achievement, a player must give gifts to other players. This badge is more unpopular, as a player must spend credits to buy something from the catalogue and send it to a friend. Popular methods to save credits include; asking a friend to trade the furniture back and sending gifts to other characters on the player's own ID.

To complete this achievement, a player must get presents from their friends, but similarly to the Present Giver achievement, many people use different characters on their IDs in order to not lose credits. There are also 10 levels in this badge, and reaching level 10 involves receiving 566 gifts.

Trivia

  • Sulake occasionally give items to Habbos - such as the free Frog in 2011, free starter Cats or occasionally Holiday Gifts, which all come in custom-designed boxes. Ecotron and Furni-Matic prizes also came in custom designed boxes, which often end up as rare and desirable furniture items.
  • There are over 140 combinations of gift wrapping, and many Habbos aim to collect them all.
  • One of the homepage backgrounds used on Christmas were alot of gifts with ribbons.
