What is the meaning of a gift?

As the father of two young children I think frequently about how my actions and views shape the way they interact with the world and with others. As they grow and discover the world, it is clear that they are full of wonder...and questions. Watching them makes me think a lot about life, family, and the values I’d like to instill in them. One question I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is “what is the value of a gift?” What makes a gift meaningful to the recipient and to the giver?
