What are gifted subs on Twitch?

Gifted subscriptions are an additional way for generous donators to share the love by giving a random or specifically chosen viewer a paid sub.

Just like a regular subscription, gifted viewers get all the same benefits such as emotes, badges, and more.

Gifting a subscription costs the same, with the creator receiving the same amount as they would for a normal sub.
