Gift is more formal than present and is used especially in business contexts: a store will advertise its Christmas gift ideas; the people who buy them will talk about the Christmas presents they have bought for family and friends. A present is usually given by and to an individual; a gift may be given by a company ( a corporate gift) and/or to an organization. A present is usually an object, but a gift may be a sum of money, or sth such as the gift of love/life. * gift比present正式,尤用于商务语境。商店作广告宣传的圣诞礼物创意用Christmas gift idea,为家人或朋友购买的圣诞礼物用Christmas present。present通常为个人赠送或收到的礼物,gift可以是公司或机构赠送或收到的礼物,如a corporate gift。present通常为物品,但gift可以是一笔钱,或另类形式的礼物,如the gift of love/life(爱/生命的给予)funded by a present of £50 000 She gave me the present of love. Especially in American English, however, gift is not always so formal and is sometimes used in personal contexts instead of present. 不过,尤其在美式英语中,gift不总是如此正式,有时会代替present用于个人场合The watch was a gift / present from my mother.这块手表是我妈妈送的礼物。 donation dəʊˈneɪʃn; NAmE doʊˈneɪʃn [countable] something that is given to a person or organization such as a charity, in order to help them; the act of giving sth in this way (给某人或慈善机构等的)捐赠物,捐款;捐赠I made a £200 donation to charity.我向慈善机构捐了200英镑。The work of the charity is funded by voluntary donations.这家慈善机构的运作靠自愿捐款资助。Organ donation (= allowing doctors to use organs from your body after your death in order to save a sick person's life) has not kept pace with the demand for transplants.器官捐献赶不上器官移植的需求。 see also donate give 5 contribution ˌkɒntrɪˈbjuːʃn; NAmE ˌkɑːntrɪˈbjuːʃn [countable, uncountable] a sum of money or sth that is given to a person or organization in order to help pay for sth or raise money for sth; the act of giving sth in this way 捐款;捐物;捐助He has made several valuable contributions towards the upkeep of the cathedral.他几次慷慨捐资修葺大教堂。Contributions of cakes and other items for the cake sale can be left in the school office.为糕点义卖捐赠的糕点和其他物品可以放到学校办公室。We rely entirely on voluntary contribution.我们全靠自愿捐资。 see also contribute give 5 NOTE 辨析 Donation or contribution? Contribution places more emphasis on the money or thing given being part of a whole, to be added to other amounts or things that other people have given. Contributions are often expected or asked for; donations are seen more as voluntary gifts. * contribution更强调捐赠的财物为整体的一部分,和他人捐赠的财物合在一起。contribution常为预期会得到或请求别人作出的捐助,donation更多为自愿捐赠。 tip [countable] a small amount of extra money that you give to sb who has provided a service for you, for example in a restaurant 小费(如在餐馆中给的)Are we supposed to leave a tip?我们要留小费吗?He gave the waiter a generous tip.他给了服务员很多小费。 tip


(-pp-) [transitive, intransitive] Did you remember to tip the waiter?你记得给服务员小费了吗?Americans were always welcome because they tended to tip heavily.美国人总是很受欢迎,因为他们往往给很多小费。
gratuity grəˈtjuːəti; NAmE grəˈtuːəti [countable] (formal) a tip 小费;赏钱Our employees may not accept gratuities.我们的员工不允许收小费。 handout ˈhændaʊt [countable] (often disapproving) money that is given to a person or organization by the government, for example to encourage commercial activity 政府拨款(如为了促进商业活动而拨给个人或机构)The company is currently thriving thanks to a £70 000 government handout.受惠于政府7万英镑的拨款,这家公司目前正在蓬勃发展。Handouts can also be given to people who are poor. * handout还可指派给穷人的捐赠品、救济品。 see also handout aid noun , hand sth out distribute
