Gift bundles are special bundle packs that can be given as gifts to friends. Please see this support article for instructions on how to add friends.


  • Gift bundles are only for gift to friends. You cannot use the items yourself.
  • If you do not have any friends, you cannot purchase a gift bundle.
  • If you wish to purchase a gift bundle using a child account, you must have permission to use the "Friends" feature. For more information, please see this support article.
  • Once you have sent a gift to a friend, you cannot undo it. If you delete a friend after you have sent the gift, it will not be retracted.
  • Gifts are delivered to friends as soon as they are sent.
  • No expiration is set for receiving a gift.
  • The Pikmin used to deliver a gift to a friend will always return after three days, even if the friend has not yet received the gift (the gift will remain there).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I receive items in a gift bundle that would exceed my storage size?

Yes, you can receive them even if they exceed the storage size.

Are there any restrictions on giving gifts?

Once you have sent a gift to a friend, you cannot send a new gift until that friend receives it. There is no limit to the number of gifts that can be given per day.

Why don't I see the "Send gift" button under a friend in my Friends list?

This is because the friend has opted out of receiving gifts. Gifts cannot be given to that Friend.

Why did I receive a gift from a friend after I deleted them?

This is because it may take several hours for the friends list to be up-to-date. We appreciate your patience.
