How to give away steam key?

Found 24th Dec 2014
Hey guys,

So I've bought a game on Steam which I would like to give away. Is it possible for me to give the recipient a key to download the game rather than actually having to add them or inputting their Steam email?

If that is possible, please can someone tell me how.

Thanks

If you have the game as a gift in your inventory then no. You need their username to send via steam or their email. If they are on your friends list then you can send via that.
If you have a key from buying from a third party site or a bundle etc. then yes.

Ah, I thought that was the case but I was just checking.

Thanks.
