Gifted Bees are a new mechanic introduced in the 7/11 update. These bees offer global buffs, called a "Hive Bonus" similar to Badges to all of your bees.
Every time you use a Royal Jelly or an egg, you have a 0.4% (1/250) chance to get a gifted bee. Similarly, feeding a bee its favorite treat can turn it gifted, though this only happens with a 0.0083% (1/12000) chance. Star Treats will always turn a chosen bee into a gifted bee and are the only method to turn Event bees like Bear Bee and Tabby Bee into a gifted bee. Star Eggs will always hatch into a gifted bee that is not already found in your hive.

- Onett has previously hinted that Panda Bear may give a way to make a bee gifted. As it turns out, Panda Bear gives a Diamond Egg, A Star Egg, and a Star Treat from his new Ant Quests.
- Because Bear Bee is now purchasable from the Robux Shop, people who purchased a Bear Bee from the startup event had their Bear Bee turned into a 1st Edition Gifted Bear Bee.
- Multiple gifted bees of the same type do not apply their Hive Bonus multiple times, nor do they count towards the number of gifted bees in the hive for any machine in Star Hall.
- Using a Royal Jelly on a Gifted Bee will almost certainly make the bee LOSE ITS GIFTED STATUS. (The new bee will have the same chance of turning Gifted as any other bee, 1/250.)
