Gift Packages refer to three different packages in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, usually treated as one type of package. All of the gift packages are available during the winter holidays, and can be bought from the Steam Market during the holidays, or at any other time.
The act of using a Gift Package used to be broadcasted to the whole Global Offensive community via a HUD notification when a round started. The notification contained the gift givers' names, how many gifts they recently gave, and the amount of gifts given in the past 24 hours and how many more players gave others gifts. The notification HUD was removed because people used it to promote their websites (Mostly skin gambling sites) by putting the link in their username.
