gave me a book that I very much like.
She did not 'gift me with' a book.
Terry Pratchett has given the english-reading world much good writing, he did not 'gift' the world 'with' it.
Yes, that usage of 'gift' as a verb originated in New York, very recently, and irritates the hell out of me, even worse, people who claim to be writers, as on this article, don't even seem to recall give, gave, given, it becomes gift x with, gifted x with, gifted x with.
Cheap as hell.
