I own some Steam games I'd like to give away to friends as I no longer play them. Have I any options?
Pay attention that selling the account is not allowed by Steam Subscriber Agreement.
A lot of people are speaking to the legality of the issue, which is important. However, as far as practicality goes, yes, you can sell/give your account information to a friend.
This is against their terms of service, and I'm not advising it, but technically you can't sell your WOW account either, and that's common practice. As Drake pointed out though, you do have billing account info associated with that account, and if you don't change it or deactivate it, your 'friend' might start buying games and you'll have to pay for them.
The only way to send games to friends is in the checkout option, selecting Purchase as a Gift
Relevant section from the link above:
Once you purchased it for your account, they are not transferable.
