The Medic when receiving the gift.

The Upgrade to Premium Gift is a tool item. It is represented as a fictionalized, worn-out retail box copy of Team Fortress 2 featuring the Soldier and a peeling barcode sticker.

When used, it grants the user a premium account, giving them perks such as a 300 slot backpack, access to all crafting recipes, the ability to trade their items to other players, and use text and voice chat (in Valve official servers). Gifting this item to another player gives the sender the Professor Speks.
