A gift, in the law of property, is the voluntary transfer of property from one person (the donor or grantor) to another (the donee or grantee) without full valuable consideration. In order for a gift to be legally effective, the donor must have intended to give the gift to the donee (donative intent), and the gift must actually be delivered to and accepted by the donee.
Gifts can be either:
- lifetime gifts (inter vivos gift, donatio inter vivos) - a gift of a present or future interest made and delivered in the donor's lifetime; or
- deathbed gifts (gift causa mortis, donatio mortis causa) - a future gift made in expectation of the donor's imminent death. A gift causa mortis is not effective unless the donor actually dies of the impending peril that he or she had contemplated when making the gift, i.e. these gifts can only be made when the donor is in a terminable condition.
Gifts can also be:
- outright - made free of any restrictions, such as being subject to a trust;
- onerous - made with a burden or obligation imposed on the donee; or
- remunerative - made to compensate for services rendered
