My gifts would b; A kind heart and a resilient nature

Good health, strong teeth and manageable hair!
Linguistic ability, sensitivity to the feelings of others.
Listen to advice but make up your own mind.

My advice (inherited from my mother) would be "always choose a cotton gusset". And my gift would be a magic potion that made chocolate have minus calories (along with health and happiness)

fill your mind with knowledge 'read' everything you can share your knowledge with others encourage 'teach where others want to learn, be kind to those who object rather than be upset & be beautiful in your personality if they in jealousy get ugly (bullies) a life filled with knowledge and intelligence may sometimes start on rocky ground but with perserverance will Always sprout and grow into something amazing !
i would give them a comfortable beautiful writing pen, a set of rotering drawing pens (because theyre good for everything) a block of yellow notepads & a regular one for carrying around, a copy of im ok your ok and staying ok - a subscripton to the oxford dictionary online .... and possibly a subscription to saga magazine .. then i can read it & pass it back !
