We don't "present" someone a gift. We give them a gift. OR we give them a present. Present and gift are both nouns and they have the same meaning. Give needs an object, we have to give someone something. Study these examples:
“I gave my girlfriend a birthday present.”
“My brother gave me his old guitar.”
“Henry's company gave him a gold watch and a $5000 bonus after 25 years with the company.”
This present is a noun (名詞) not a verb (動詞)!
