Verizon customers can give the gift of data this holiday season with a simple message from the Verizon Messages app. The holiday season is when most people usually consume more data as they are on the road or in the air traveling to see loved ones. So send someone an extra gig so they can listen to more music or watch more movies while traveling.

For $10, you can now send 1GB to a family member or friend using the Verizon Messages app. The $10 will be directly billed to your Verizon account.

“You’ll find the data gift option in the eGift Catalogue within the Verizon Messages app and be able to personalize it with a message before you send it. Your friend will receive the gift as a text message with a link to redeem their 1GB.” – Verizon

Another option is to sign into your my Verizon account online and send it through there where you can personalize the gift before sending. The recipient will receive the gift as a text message.

This gifting option only works for Verizon customers, not that T-Mobile customers need it as there are no overage fees.
