EVERYBODY was given one.
Every. Last. Active. Account.

edit : well, the non-trial ones anyway

You need to explain everybody else that thinks they didn't get it that they need to click on "redeem items" on the character selection screen while their character is in a NPC station.

It's a christmas gift from CCP, you can redeem it from the character page, every account (not character) can redeem 1. They have a built in probe launcher and sleeper rats (ONLY sleepers) won't attack it.

Here's a tip; don't undock it because someone will blow you up for lulz, don't sell it because in a while they'll be worth a whole lot. Cling on to it and wait a few months.

Must be a full account. Trialists do not get one.

A few years ago they gave everyone a funky looking shuttle called the Apotheosis. Think that and this are it for free ships CCP has given us. As noted other years it was a snowball launcher and snowballs (you could "shoot other people with it with no aggro and they did no damage). A few months later the snowballs all melted.

People's inability to read the news annoy me. Especially when they then expect me to explain to them something perfectly detailed through several newsposts (published both on the site and in-game) and a devblog.

And few months after that i sold my snowball launcher and melted snowballs for several mil. Cool

As usual if you willing to sit long enough on these freegifts they become rare items and theres people that are willing to pay good money to get rare items.

So I get in my pod to pick-up my Zephyr and... I forgot to mark the wormhole entrance.

Buy 4 Core Scanner Probes 2 jumps away... dang, won't fit in a pod! Oh right, they will in a free Ibis!

Scan system. Four signatures:
1: Radar.
2: Gravimetric.
3: Lost wormhole, end of life too.
4: ?
Back in w-space. Home sweet home.

Named my Zephyr "Captain's Yacht" Very Happy

As bitter cold descends upon our global offices, the EVE development crew has managed to thaw out it‘s frozen asteroid heart and give a little something back to you. Our team has been secretly planning and wrapping a holiday gift for pod pilots the universe over—the Zephyr.
Emphasis not mine, but I would have put it there anyway.

Are you sure you looked?
