How to Gift Subs on Twitch

The biggest appeal of Twitch as a streaming platform is the community aspect. You can find new friends here, you can build your own community by gaining followers/subs, and finally, you can enjoy being in a diverse group of people from across the globe.

When making friends gift-giving is an obvious way of encouraging a stronger relationship and Twitch is no different. On Twitch you can give sub gifts to people you like or you can give sub gifts to random people in chat to support your favorite content creator.

No matter why you did it, gifting subs on Twitch will definitely bring a smile to someone’s face, so if you can afford it, there is no reason not to do it!

You can once again either tap the Subscribe button and select the Gift option which will either randomly give someone a sub or you can select an individual using their Twitch ID, or you can simply look in chat and see if the person you want to gift the sub to is present.
