If you were dreaming of giving someone a present, it might mean your empathy was awakened during your waking hours. You might have felt obliged to give a specific person a gift. Or you may have felt empathy for a person who needs a boost with a dose of kindness. You have been stimulated into inventing this dream and this is strong indication that you should carry this out during your waking reality. A gift need not be a tangible material one. A present can be a service rendered to a person, out of the goodness of your heart.
