How to Gift Cosmetics in Fortnite

Gifting Skins in Fortnite is quite simple. Head on to the Item Store and select the Outfit you would like to gift. Note that you have to pay for it with V-Bucks like you are purchasing it for yourself. Select the Skin, and choose the Gift To Friends option. This will open the list of your Fortnite friends, and there find the friend you wish to gift the Skin to. Naturally, if your friend already owns the item, you will not be able to gift it to them. You will be asked to confirm your choice and you’re done. Your friend will receive a notification that they have received a gift.
