GW2 In-Game Gift Ideas

Whether it’s Wintersday or any other festive occasion, many Guild Wars 2 players celebrate by giving and receiving in-game gifts. Even though it’s quick and easy to send someone gold in the mail, we think it’s more fun to pick out specific items as gifts. We’ve put together a list of gift ideas to get you started this holiday season. Here is our list of Guild Wars 2 gift ideas that can be purchased with in-game gold and sent to other players.

Dyes

Dyes are a great gift that can fit anyone’s budget. There are hundreds of unique dye colors to choose from, but you can always send an Unidentified Dye as a gift if the choices are overwhelming. Most of the “kit” dyes listed below are pretty expensive, but you can find many great looking and affordable dyes by browsing through the GW2 Wiki’s section on dyes.

Here are some of the unique dyes included in various dye kits:

Exotic Weapons

There are many unique exotic weapons to choose from when looking for potential gifts. “Named” exotics are weapons that have a unique title and skin, compared to regular exotics that have common names (e.g. “Berserker’s Pearl Reaver”). A complete list of unique exotic weapons is maintained on the GW2 Wiki’s “List of Named Weapons” page.
