I want to give a gift to someone for Christmas. They know they want a game, but not which one and I don't think they are on Steam yet. Don't really want to ask, because of the surprise element. Can I buy a gift card and email them the code to be used once they set up on Steam?

  • Cursory research indicates that the digital gift cards do not work that way. However, I think physical gift cards should work. – John the Green Dec 23 '17 at 20:34
  • What @JohntheGreen said is backed up in store.steampowered.com/digitalgiftcards digital cards seem to require to be linked to an account, whereas physical ones do not – Oak Dec 23 '17 at 20:34

You can get a physical Steam gift card available in some stores and mail it to them. there would be a code inside ready for when they get steam.
