You can’t gift Apex Coins. At this time you also can’t gift Thematic Packs Collection Event Items either as a single gift or bundle at this time, but look out for this in future updates.
You can’t gift your friend an item they already own as a single item.
If you give them a bundle with an item your friend already owns, you’ll be given a discount on the bundle and they'll get any other items they don't already own.
To view the discounted amount, open the gifting window and click on your friend’s name. The Apex Coin total will update and be discounted based on what item(s) your friend already has.

Remember—all purchases are final.
Make sure you’re sending your gift to the correct account on the correct platform. If you send it to the wrong person, even if they’re banned, we may not be able to help.
Gifts are automatically added to your inventory after your friend sends them. You don’t have to do anything to accept them.

Gifts will be added to your inventory automatically and you’ll get a notification in your inbox.
If you’re not seeing your gift, try going back to the lobby, then back to your inventory, to find your gift.
Go to your EA Account Security settings and confirm Login Verification is turned on.
If you still aren’t able to buy the gift after turning on Login Verification, restart your game and try again.

Your friend may need to accept your friend request in-game. You can’t send gifts until they do.
If you’re playing on PlayStation, Xbox, or Steam you need to make sure you are friends in-game, not just on the platform.
You can only send five gifts total every 24-hour period. You’ll get this error if you’ve maxed out your gifts in a 24-hour period and will need to wait before you can send more.
This can happen when there’s a game or server issue. You’ll need to wait until it’s fixed before trying to send a gift again.
You can check the server status by going to the Apex Legends EA Help page.
You can also talk to one of our advisors via phone, chat, or email by clicking Contact Us on any EA Help page. Have the item or bundle name you gifted and when you sent it ready, if you can.
