Can you gift games to yourself?

It’s the holiday season, and the steam sale just started, and I have the urge to buy many many games as gifts, BUT, I am not certain that people are going to want those games, and I might want them for myself if no one else desires said game.

Is it possible, if you have a gift copy of a game already bought, to give that gift to yourself?


As of 4th of May, 2017, this is not possible anymore. You can either purchase the game for yourself, adding it directly to your library, or send it to a friend, who can either accept it, adding it to their library, or refund the game, refunding your money.

Here is the official blog post explaining the change.
