What's in a gift?

A gift is only a gift if you give someone what they want. It is not a gift if you give what you want them to have. A gift has no attachment. It is given unconditionally. The person receiving it has the right to do anything with the gift: use it, destroy it, give it away, whatever. It is theirs without condition, and the giver expects nothing in return. If it doesn't fit that criteria, it is not a gift. It should be classified as something else.
