If you want to give the gift of "Minecraft," you can purchase a pre-paid gift card at a number of retailers. When redeemed, these gift cards grant a full copy of "Minecraft," as if it had been purchased directly from the online store. To redeem a gift code, you need an Mojang account, which is needed to play the game anyway.
To redeem your code, you need to sign into your Mojang account using your preferred Web browser. Then, go to the code redemption page linked in the Resources section and enter the gift code. The code is a 10-digit alphanumeric sequence, hidden under a silver scratch-off section on the back of the card. Enter the code exactly as it's displayed, then click "Redeem."
