A gift is something given to another out of thoughtfulness, with no expectation of something in return. It can be any number of things that are meaningful to the recipient, and may be large or small, store-bought or handmade. Although many people give gifts for occasions such as a birthday, a wedding, or holidays like Christmas, a gift can be given any time of year and even for no reason at all.
