After Team Fortress 2 introduced the trading system Valve kept further refining the idea. Today, they released a Steam beta update which integrates the trading system into the steam client. With this new system users can not only trade items within Steam games, but als the games themselves as well if they were purchased as a gift.

Aside from Team Fortress 2, users can trade items from Portal 2 and Spiral Knights as well as of today. This list is going to grow substantially in the future. Valve wants to bring this new feature to all game developers and rumors suggest, that you will soon be able to trade your unused CD-Keys and money as well.
