Without any plugins, the only way players can give each other items is by dropping them onto the ground. The plugin in today's spotlight offers a more secure method: sending gifts.
Players can send a gift by simply holding an item and executing a command. As you can see above, the item will not get sent immediately, as the receiver will have to accept the gift first. That way, those who are not interested in receiving items can simply deny them.
In addition to gifts, sGift also makes it possible to trade and swap items with others. This works very similarly to sending gifts; upon accepting the offer, the sender of the item will receive an item or money in return.
Simply follow these steps and your players will be enjoying this plugin in no time!

- Place the "sGift.jar" file in the "plugins" folder, located in your server's main directory.

Using the provided configuration file, you can enable each method of sharing items separately. Furthermore, there are various other settings available that let you set a request timeout, maximum distance, maximum amount and much more.
sGift is a neat little plugin that offers safer ways to share items with other players. Not only does it allows players to gift items, but it also lets them trade and swap items with one another. Thanks to the included configuration file you can fit the plugin to your needs as well.
