The Holiday Gifts (Most commonly known as The Christmas Update) were a set of temporary extras added to Grand Theft Auto Online.
These items were installed in the 1.08 update, but were only made available on the December 24th 2013.
The items however, expired on January 5th, 2014. Another set of "seasonal treats" labelled the Festive Surprise (and the Festive Surprise 2015) were added to the game in the Christmas of 2014 and 2015, featuring all the previous masks, clothing, and snow; with some added items and features.
- A snowfall occurred on the 25th of December, resulting in Los Santos and Blaine County being fully covered in snow for approximately 48 hours.
- New Christmas-based clothing, such as Santa hats, elf jackets and popular Christmas characters masks, all added for free in the character's wardrobe.
- Discounts on some items, such as luxury sedans, weapons, winter clothing, vehicle musical horns and others.
- 25% on the Tinsel Towers apartments 45 and 29.
- New photo Filters, Borders, and Facial Expressions, as well as a new Depth of Field Effect and a Meme Creator feature.
- While the clothes can no longer be obtained in-game, if the player has kept them on since the update they won't disappear. Changing them will make them unavailable though.
