Gift

A gift or a present is an item given to someone without the expectation of payment or return. An item is not a gift, if that item, itself, is already owned by the one to whom it is given. Although gift-giving might involve an expectation of reciprocity, a gift is meant to be free. In many countries, the act of mutually exchanging money, goods, etc. may sustain social relations and contribute to social cohesion. Economists have elaborated the economics of gift-giving into the notion of a gift economy. By extension the term gift can refer to anything that makes the other happier or less sad, especially as a favor, including forgiveness and kindness. Gifts are also first and foremost presented on occasions - birthdays and, in Western cultures, Christmas being the main examples and other occasions like birthdays.

Giving Money

Here is another great way to give money as a gift. It uses a great pun about pizza. Then the money is taped down in a circular shape. The coins on top are pepperoni. This would be a great gift for college students. At my school, it seems everyone loves pizza.

No matter whether it is a physical gift or not (such as volunteering to help an elderly couple) it is still a gift. Even though your not given that brand new Kindle Fire HD (physical gift) you can give a gift to an elderly couple that needs help shoveling snow or cleaning their home without a charge.
