To receive something as a ‘gift’ in a dream confirms how some side of you, particularly while dreaming, has the omniscient ability to provide insight, inspiration or intuition. You can see a gift in a dream as a message about your own gifts that are perhaps, unexpressed. Explore the symbolism of the gift to understand what your psyche is presenting to you. The character presenting the gift should also be considered as to how their characteristics pertain to you. Unwrapping a package is a message about opening to the surprise element of life, or exploring your untapped potential.
