Your account must have some V-Bucks for you to gift skins in Fortnite Battle Royale. The cheapest skin costs 800 V-Bucks, which is equal to around $7. However, if you want to gift Legendary skins, you will need to have 2,000 V-Bucks in your account.

You can also gift bundles and other cosmetics to your friends. When it comes to the Battle Pass, on the other hand, you will have to purchase it with real money instead of V-Bucks, then gift it to your friends.

Before we begin, it's important to note that in order to gift skins in Fortnite, you need to enable two-factor authentication on your account. You can do it here. Furthermore, you must have been friends with another player for more than 48 hours before you can send them a gift.
