    Gifting games on a child account.


    I want to gift Minecraft to my friend who only has Xbox one edition, but it won't let me. I have enough funds and a personal debit card linked to my account, and I'm wondering if it won't let me because I have a child account. Why won't it let me gift it?

    P.S. the friend doesn't have XBOX Live gold, would that be why?

    :)

    Followed the Redeem Gift Card Instructions for Family account, credits were still added to Parent account vs. children's.

    If the gift card was going to be used for games, you could "gift" whatever game to your child's account.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. You can basically gift a game that your child wants. For example, he wants a certain game, instead of purchasing it directly on their account. You can purchase it as a gift on your account and it gets sent to your child account.

    Hi friend,

    Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with gifting this DLC. Does your nephew use a child account for Xbox Live? Sometimes gifting to child accounts can cause issues. Here's a support article for issues with gifting codes.

    I hope this helps with your issue.

    Hi, I hope you're doing great out there despite the issue that you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regards to your concern.

    If I may ask, what is the exact issue that you’re experiencing whenever you’re trying to gift your friend the game?

    Also, it does not require to have an Xbox Live Gold to receive a gifted game. Just make sure that you’re both on the same region.
