* How the [[spoiler: zords]] are played up as in ''Power Rangers: Shuriken Force''. Each ranger was told to bring in an item that represented their most precious memory. And it's explicit shown in each segment just ''how much'' these items means to them even after years of not laying eyes on them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheFellowshipOfTheRing'': mostly skips over Galadriel's gift giving, only mentioning her gift to Frodo. But in a deleted scene Gimli talks about his gift - Galadriel wasn't sure what to give him, so he asked for a single piece of hair from her head, she gave him three. Legolas's surprised smile, and Gimli's satisfied tone, make this a rather heartwarming scene.

** In ''Cordelia's Honor'', Cordelia finds Aral in a drunken stupor and a colorful tropical shirt. The shirt turns out to be a gift from the men who served with him at a former post, most of whom are dead.
** In ''A Civil Campaign'', Miles shows Ekaterin the scalps in the attic -- presumably presented to his grandfather by his subordinates. As they are presents, doing anything with them is complicated.

* In Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy A Wizard of Earthsea]]'', Ged finds an island with an old man and woman. He deduces from the dress the woman shows him -- rich, for a child -- that they had been abandoned there. She gives him half of an armring. In ''The Tombs of Atuan'', this gift is his driving motivation for his actions.

* ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain''
** At the end of LloydAlexander's ''The Book of Three'', the main characters are given gifts that they will carry throughout the series.
** And in the middle of the fourth book, ''Taran Wanderer'', Dorath demands Taran's sword as "payment" for "protection." Taran refuses because it was given to him by his guardian Dallben and first put on him by the girl he loves. [[spoiler: After a fight in which Dorath's sword is broken, Dorath treacherously pulls a dagger and steals it.]] At the end of the book this proves to be symbolic, because [[spoiler: Taran faces Dorath again, this time fighting with a sword Taran had forged himself, and when the two swords meet, it is the sword of his childhood that shatters]].
