Red Gift Boxes as well as the recipe to craft these christmas-themed furniture pieces could occasionally be found in randomly spawning Holiday Gift-boxes during christmas-times - like from December 14th 2015 until January 13th 2016.
These boxes are in reality 1-block-sized storage chests with 32 slots (since August 2016) that you can place and use to store your stuff in - or to give presents to other players.
Red Gift Boxes could rarely also be obtained from Arctic Mirus, Rambeaus or Blizzard Chizzards during christmas-holiday, either as loot for killing them, or harvesting from them when they were your Pets.
You can still craft them in your Crafting Menu ("Q" as the default key) after obtaining the crafting-recipe either during christmas-season or as a gift from players.
To craft 1 Red Gift Box you'll need (as of R29 in March 2016):
- 2 Stone Slabs made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 1 Glob of Goo made from Mold in a Processor or looted/harvested from many creatures including Pigsies
- 1 Red Pigment made of Red Flowers from Ashenwood-trees in a Processor or found in Obsidian Treasure Chests
- 1 Stone Rod made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor or found in Stone Treasure Chests
You can put whole stacks of stackable materials/blocks/items into these Gift Boxes from your inventory or quick-bar by right-clicking or dragging & dropping with your left mouse-button. If you hold a stack of stuff with your mouse-button (left click), you can drag it over the Red Gift Box and then right-click to drop only one piece of the stack (also repeatedly). You can also hold left shift + left click, then drag to move half a stack, or hold left shift + right click to move five items, or hold left ctrl + right click to move one item.
You can use the same kind of procedures to take stuff / stacks from Gift Boxes or chests.
You can name Gift Boxes (these names will be shown instead of "Red Gift Box" when you look at them from outside) individually, by activating/opening the Gift Box/chest and then clicking on the icon that looks like a square (note) with a pen in the top right corner. You can type up to 30 characters into this array. Even though while writing into this field all letters look like capital letters, you will be shown lower case letters too after confirming your entry with "enter"/"return".
You can also change a few settings for each Gift Box by clicking on the padlock-icon shown in the top right corner after activating/opening the Gift Box. Here you can set individual authorizations to control who will be permitted access to this Gift Box (and its contents). Available permission-settings currently (June 2016): "just me", "world owner/admins", "world mods", "builders" or "everyone". On Claims the available settings are "just me", "claim admins", "claim interact only", "claim builders" and "everyone". Since R33 (August 2016) all chests and Gift Boxes as well are set to "just me" by default.
To use this storage-item, place it on the ground and activate it with right-click or "F" (as the default key). Since R32 you won't need to equip any Power Cells any more to pick up any crafted objects that have been placed into the world.
You can only pick up and take Red Gift Boxes that are empty (with no items inside). Of course you won't be able to take such items on claims of other players (or in worlds) where your permission level is set low.
If you have placed Gift Boxes or chests of any kind on a Creativerse game world before August 2016, you will have to empty them, pick them up (as said no Power Cell is needed to pull any of them) and then place the Gift Boxes/chests again to gain access to their new larger storage space.
Different from the randomly spawning Holiday Gifts, you can pick up and keep Red Gift Boxes, as they are furniture and "real" storage containers.
