To dream of receiving a present can be a way of examining gifts and potentials that are unrecognized. Unlike the box which can show old baggage that might need to be discarded – the present points to attributes that are undergoing examination that will lead to greater empowerment. You may be given presents in boxes that appear empty or gifts that seem bizarre and strange. These symbols are like the unknown room in a house that points you toward unexplored potential. The basic idea is that you are not tapping all that you are capable of.
