A gift is something given, whether it be with meaning, through obligation or a talent it is given without money and with no intention of 'repayment'. That's how it works in my life anyway!
Wishing you the happiest of birthdays Jane. A gift can be as simple as a smile.
Happy Birthday. May your day be filled with memory making moments with those you love.
Happy Birthday! I just had a birthday yesterday and I received lots of gifts. To me, a gift means love.
Being able to provide something for someone that is special. Be it a service, a product, money or just the best gift of all....time with them.
Oh a very Happy Birthday to you!!!! To me 'gift' means something special from a good friend
Happy birthday Jane. I hope you have a wonderful day. A gift to me is an unexpected offering given from the heart....a word, an experience, a kindness or something tied with a bow. Wishing you them all xxx
Happy birthday, hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for the giveaway. A gift to me is something from the heart, something that has thought and meaning behind it. It doesn't have to be large, it doesn't have to be expensive, but it should be meaningful. The most cherished are often the simplest, the flowers (probably weeds) my son picked from the garden, the pretty stone he found on his walk, the drawing he drew. Simple but full of love.
Happy Birthday Jane..... hope you have a wonderful day and how sweet of you to want to share it with us!!To me a 'gift' is something given with thought and love .....Now I hope you are off to do something that involves a lot of fun! and start making preparations for a landmark birthday next year!Hugz
Happy birthday!! Of course, there's the standard meaning (aka birthday gift) but I like the thought of the gifts (aka talents) we are given to use! I'm blessed to be able to use my gifts to help others - so I think those are the best kind!!
To me a gift is something you give of your heart and is filled with all of the love you have for the recipient.
Happy birthday! Gift, the simple pleasure in giving!
Happy Birthday Jane! Hope you have a truly lovely day! When I think of gifts, I think of something given with love, with no expectation of receiving anything in return.
A gift is something special and meaningful you give to someone without expecting anything in return, out of the kindness of your heart and with love for the recipient. Happy birthday to you!MGM
Happy Birthday! A gift, be it a material object or something less tangible, is an expression of the giver's caring for the intended recipient. At least when I give gifts, I hope that's what they are. That's why quilts and handmade items are such precious gifts, because of the caring that goes into making them. And to a quilter, fabric is always a welcome gift because we get to enjoy using it to make something and then enjoy using or giving away the finished product. So very kind of you to offer a gift, thanks for the chance!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU♥Thanks for s sweet Giveaway !firstname.lastname@example.org
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAPPY BIRTHDAYTO YOU!!!A fife is something given to someone to let then know that you were thinking about them for whatever the reason may be.

Happy Birthday Jane...You just can't beat the GIFT of friendship....
A real gift for me doesn't come on my birthday or Christmas necessarily. I love the totally unexpected especially when someone says they saw something that reminded them of me and had to get it
Happy happy birthday! A gift to me is time with my daughter who now lives in Melbourne to go to university. I don't see her half as much as I'd like to so am so looking forward to seeing her next weekend. Probably too much information but I'm excited!
Enjoy your birthday Jane. A gift for me means, time spent with all of my friends and family; in the one place together. That's quality "gifting"in my books!!
Happy birthday!!!! A gift to me means something given without thought of getting anything in return. You can give your love and kindness, a hug and a smile . . . something only felt on the inside but certainly shows on the outside. Those are the best kind. But fabric is a close second to all of these if you're a quilter. :)
Happy Birthday!! A gift is a part of me that I give to you.

Sending you Happy Birthday wishes and hoping your day was special!! To me a gift is something thoughtful and memorable... Something that will be treasured and it doesn't have to be wrapped with pretty paper and a ribbon.
Happy birthday! A gift is something (even something as small as a picked wildflower) that reminds you that someone thinks you are special or important to someone else.
A gift is something you receive usually not deserved and unexpected.
Happy Birthday! To me, a gift is given with love, with the recipients' wants/needs in mind and with no strings attached. I love giving gifts!
Happy Birthday, a gift is lovely to receive and better to give .
Happy Birthday. I love giving handmade gifts, the love and the time that goes into them gives me pleasure, also watching the persons reaction when they open it.
Happy Birthday! A gift is anything you didn't expect that makes you smile and giggle a little. It might be a card, a smile, a phone call, a trinket, a new toy or something homemade. Sometimes it's just that I Love You.
To me a gift can be many things. A random act of kindness. A kiss and a hug from your child. A beautiful day. A special talent. A good friend and even a sloppy lick from your best fur buddy.
First of all...Happy Birthday Jane!!!!A gift is something that makes one happy. Something as simple as a smile or a hug. Maybe getting to see a rainbow after a bad storm. The best gift I have received in a long time is my grand daughter!
Happy birthday Jane! To me a gift is anything you give to someone with no thought of anything in return, other than good feelings about brightening someone else's day! I hope you have a wonderful day!
Happy Birthday to you! May you have a day filled with love, happiness and family in abundance. To me a gift is something given from the heart. It does not necessarily have to be something extravagant or come from a store. Sometimes it is a smile, a word of encouragement, a text message, a goodie bag. A beautiful sunrise/sunset. A simple thank you. The list can go on and on. To me the most precious gift is when out of the blue someone thinks enough of you to contacts you and lets you know that you are special.
Happy Birthday! A gift is something given with love and with no expectation of anything in return, except possibly a hug (depending on the recipient). It does not need to have monetary value, it can be a service or an item.
Happy birthday! My third child shares the day, and turned 1 :) I am in the process of trying to teach my children about gifts - something you give with great thought to another. they are a bit young for the concept of one's time being a gift though.
Happy Birthday Jane, I had a birthday on Thursday!! A gift is something given with love and kindness for any reason or no reason, and no obligation>
Happy Birthday Jane! A gift is something given willingly, sometimes without us even knowing that we are giving it!
Happy birthday. A gift is a piece of love, given to enhance the joy of living. My granddaughter is the best gift I have received in years.
Happy birthday to you. For me a gift means love, but also appreciation. It's time spent in thinking what you like the most, what you need the most and all of this means so much love.
A gift can be a present or a kind gesture. But, to me, a gift is a natural ability or talent. You are so obviously gifted with quilty talent! Happy Birthday Jane!

A gift is something given to someone without them knowing it is coming, and needing no repayment from it either. It can be something someone unwraps, a meal for a sick neighbor, snowblow an elderly neighbors driveway, etc.
Happy birthday Jane! Hmmmm this question really makes you think. Asking DH, and 6 yr old son, (ok and the dog) what their thoughts were, I realized there is no dictionary worthy answer. At first I thought it was something tangible someone would not buy for themselves. Then there is service, talent, well-wishes, and the gift of prayer. Thank you for the gift of this question. I'm going to spend some more time pondering on it :) Hope your birthday is a happy one, and "gift" filled :)
I like a gift to be about the joy it brings the giver and the receiver.
Happy Birthday!!! A gift is something given to give pleasure to the recipient...a smile, a hug, a kind word, or a quilt!! They all work for me :)

A gift to me is the time each week that my sisters and I get together and quilt. Lots of laughter and talking a wonderful gift.
The best part of a gift is the smile on the person's face when you give them something just perfect for them that touches their heart. Happy Birthday fellow Scorpion - my birthday is Nov 10th ... would love to win some fabric for my double nickel birthday - yikes!!!
When I think about the word "gift" I have thoughts of things like time , generosity, love , compassion, a gift from the heart . It isn't measured in monetary value nor size . It is something as small as a rose picked from the garden and placed next to the bed of someone who is coming to stay or time spent with someone listening to stories from yesteryear.
Happy Birthday . I hope you were given a gift from the heart for your birthday .
Happy Birthday!!! A gift is something that is given from the heart with no expectation of a return gesture. It can be given to a friend or family member or a cup of coffee to a total stranger who looks a little down behind you at DD.
Happy Birthday! A gift means making someone happy to brighten their day and to let them know they mean something special to you. I would rather give a gift & watch their expression than to receive a 100 gifts for me.
Happy Birthday! To me, a gift means something given with no other motive than to make someone happy.
Parabéns, feliz aniversário. Eu acho que a vida é o melhor presente de todas e a graça de possuir dons e habilidades. Agradeço o presente que recebik em gostar de fazer peças bonitas e poder oferecer de presente aos amigos.
Happy, Happy Birthday!!! Make a very special wish...and send it out into the world!! A gift simply is a sign that some cares for you. As simple as that! Be blessed...
Happy BirthdayTo me the word "gift" is something special that I give to someone else to brighten their day. It can be a present for a birthday etc, it can be a smile, a word of encouragement, a helping hand, etc. I love to "gift" other people to see their face light up and know that they matter to me and others.
'gefeliciteerd' as we in Dutch on your birthday! To me a gift means something given with no obligation and comes from a good heart :-)
Webster's dictionary says: a present; a thing given; a donation; natural talent; to present. with. You fall into these categories. Happy Birthday!Janet
Happy Birthday!A gift is something unexpected, undeserved even, but yet given or received with a happy and satisfied heart.
Happy Birthday! To me a gift is something given to you that you are not expecting. It could be the gift of time, a smile, knowledge, or even the beauty of nature. A physical gift is given without expectation of receiving anything in return and always because it reminds you of the person who will be receiving it and makes you as happy as they are.
A gift is an unexpected treat!

A gift is something given to someone to make them happy. And made is best. Linda Gerig
Happy Birthday! I believe a true gift is given from your heart and may not even have any monitary value.
I have typically overthought this. At first I was all "a gift is an expression of love" but if we're all being honest, occasionally a gift feels like an obligation. And although I love giving gifts, I don't think there's anyone in the world that hasn't been disappointed on opening a gift to find out it wasn't what you wanted (especially when we were kids and got bizarre things from crazy old aunts and uncles). And that in turn led me to one of my absolute favourite poems, by EV Rieu:The Hippopotamus’s BirthdayHe has opened all his parcels but the largest and the last;His hopes are at their highest and his heart is beating fast.O happy Hippopotamus, what lovely gift is here?He cuts the string. The world stands still. A pair of boots appear!O little Hippopotamus, the sorrows of the small!He dropped two tears to mingle with the flowing Senegal;And the ‘Thank you’ that he uttered was the saddest ever heardIn the Senegambian jungle from the mouth of beast or bird.So what does a gift mean for me? It means matching the perfect thing for the perfect person, and seeing that smile of recognition when they open it, instead of hippopotamus tears.
Gift - a surprise, no matter the size, from someone who loves you.

I think a gift is thoughtfulness-- sometimes it is just nice to be remembered. I was at a retreat in October that just happened to overlap my birthday. I never mentioned it, but someone remembered and I woke up in the morning to find my Bernina decorated, some cute "quilty" gifts and a cake! It wasn't expected and it made me feel pretty special!

A gift is something given freely to a particular person, without expectation of another item given to you. It is, hopefully, something without strings attached, and is often given for a special occasion - birthday, anniversary, etc.
How kind of you to give the gift on your own birthday! Gift to me is a verb - we can gift ourselves through a kind act, or sharing a talent to teach others, or providing something material that someone needs or would love. Best wishes!
I heard an interesting definition from Dave Gorman recently. He says a gift is something you wouldn't buy for yourself, but a present is, so socks is a present but a novelty ornament is a gift. So this giveaway is definitely a present!

A gift is something wonderful and unexpected either given or received with absolutely no strings attached. Happy Birthday!
I love to gift and to receive gifts. They don't have to be big or expensive. It truly is the "thought that counts". Gifts mean that you are thinking of someone who isn't with you at the moment and who means a lot to you. A true gift is meaningful and not something you feel you have to give.
Happy Birthday!A gift can be anything that is given away to a person without you expecting to get something back from it.
Happy, happy birthday! I'm the same number as you.Gift to me means deep in your heart and the most precious gift I can give or receive is a hug.
a gift is something given to another. It can be tangible or abstract. The receiver is not always a person, entity or thing, the receiver can also be abstract. Sometimes the giver and/or the receiver don't even know that the gift transaction has occurred, and it takes a long time to dawn on one or the other that the transfer happened. Those are my favourite gifts - the ones you don't cotton on to until much later when you realise what you have been given and how grateful you are for it
A gift is a blessing, from one to another; a treasure and a symbol of love.
A gift is the joy you receive in giving of yourself and seeing the pleasure it brings to others. A gift is experiencing the happiness your receipt of another's gift brings to them.
A gift is something given with love. :)
A gift is any small or large thing that makes you happy - and it can be either given or received!
I certainly enjoyed reading through, and pretty much agree with, everyone's definitions. Everyday we wake up is a gift...and with what we do and say, we hopefully pass that gift along Hope you enjoyed your day!
Happy birthday Jane!! A true gift is what someone else gives you unconditionally - love, time, an ear, a present.
A verb or a noun, gift is a versatile word if you think about it. I immediately think of talents when I hear the word gifts. I usually say presents when I talk about the things you give others. So for me, gifts are abilities given by or inherited from God, to make it easier to serve others. :)
Happy Birthday!!! Gift to me is something extra, unexpected and not to be taken for granted. It could be a moment, another breath, an item, pretty much anything.
To me, a gift is a tangible aspect of celebration - birth, love, graduation, friendship, time, life.
A gift to me means given from the heart, something with no strings, which lift a person spirits. A gift helps the person to be in a better place.

Happy Birthday! A gift is something that we give, and not expect something in return. Thank you for sharing the fun on your birthday.
A gift is a talent that is given to you. Sometimes you are born with the gift, inherited from your family - and everyone can see it right away. Sometimes you develop a gift by coming in contact with people and things around you. I think my gift developed over time. I have a gift for color and making lovely, unique quilts.
something given as an expression of love without expecting anything in return.. i hope you win Marilyn!
