We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;—World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams: Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems.

When you complete the achievements, you can get either a "gift" or coal. The coal can be used at the end for an entry into the "EVERY GAME ON STEAM" prize, or a few can be crafted into a gift. The gifts are either actual games (I think just the ones that have achievements for the sale) or coupons. My first gift was a 50% off Valve coupon.

How do you get it? Both me and my friend have not received a free gift yet (although my friend just got the Valve Complete Pack for $40)
:sadcad:
So um yeah.

Follow the instructions. One of the gifts is for visiting your inventory via the link on the event page

It's due to the steam servers going down earlier. Their starting to stabilise now though, so just it a few hours.
EDIT: About 2 minutes after I posted this, my gift appeared about an hour after unlocking it. 33% off any valve game :L

After a few clicks it worked for me. (This may or not be important: Changed Privacy Settings for profile from private to friends only, Pressed F5 on gift page.)

Half-Life 2: Episode Two (Tradable, didn't have this game, edit: it's $3.99 right now)
