Is this to do with a present being wrapped up and handed to
another? Does one person sacrifice
something to help someone else? Or is to do with having a certain talent? Is
that gift always welcome? Does the protagonist make the most of what has been
gifted to them? All of those scenarios
exist in these stories and there are other interpretations as well of the theme
