Several special seasonal Magic packagings have been released by Wizards of the Coast, containing a combination of various products.

Description[edit | edit source]

Holiday Gift Box[edit | edit source]

Although Gift Boxes incidently have been released in the past, this particular product was introduced after the release of Return to Ravnica.[1]

The storage box is useful to both beginners and thorough collectors and especially designed for non-Magic playing people who want to surprise their playing relatives. Initially, the gift boxes were always released in November. Starting with Shadows over Innistrad, a Gift Box is released with each large expansion.

Each Gift Box can hold more than 2,000 Magic cards, it comes with some booster packs from the first set of a block, a pack of twenty basic lands from the same set, six illustrated plastic dividers, a sticker sheet for customizing the dividers and an exclusive card with alternate art.

Gift Box[edit | edit source]

In 2016 the product was rebranded as the Magic: The Gathering Gift Box and also appeared in the Easter Season.[2][3]

Gift Pack[edit | edit source]

For the 2017 Holiday Season the Gift Box was replaced by a Gift Pack, losing the deck box.[4] In 2018, the Gift Pack became integrated with the reintroduced Core Set, and featured 5 exclusive cards.[5][6]

Gift Edition[edit | edit source]

Starting with Throne of Eldraine in 2019, the "Gift Edition" was deluxe version of the Bundle of the relevant set.
