What is the difference between a gift and a present?

Posted by Team @ Love's Presents on

There is no difference between presenting a gift or gifting a present.

The nouns gift and present are synonymous in their meanings referring to something that is thoughtfully given to someone without expectation of return.

Gift as a verb has meaningful distinction from generic give—that is, when something is said to be gifted, it has implications of thoughtful consideration; something given, however, might be handed over without much care or thought.

The verb present is derived from the Anglo-French verb presenter, meaning "to bring or place before or into the presence of," "to introduce."

Both words go well with our LovesPresents designs!
