To obtain the Iceborn Keeper icon, you need to send a friend a mystery gift!

Last but not least is Mystery Gifting! Mystergy gifting allows you to send a friend a random skin for any champion they own - ranging from a 520 RP skin to an ultimate 3250 RP tier skin and including legacy skins - for a mere 490 RP.
"Mystery Gifting allows you to pick up a surprise gift for your friends! For 490 RP, you will be able to send your friends a random skin worth at least 520 RP for a champion they own."
Q: What skins are eligible for Mystery Gifting
"Most skins for Champions that your friend owns are eligible for Mystery Gifting, as long as they are worth at least 520 RP. Every skin on sale in the store will be eligible and this includes Legendary and even Ultimate skins! There are even some Legacy skins not for sale in the store that are included like Scuba Gragas and Annie in Wonderland."
Q: And it's not possible for my friend to receive a skin for a champion they don't own?
"Nope, your friend can only receive skins for champions they already own. For example, your friend cannot receive Panda Annie if they don’t already own Annie as a champion."
Q: And what about skins my friend already owns?
"Your friend can only receive a skin that they don’t already own. No duplicate skins will be added to their account."
Q: How long is Myserty Gifting available?
"Mystery Gifting will be available throughout the Harrowing event, so make sure you send all of your surprise presents to your friends before the event ends!"
