Gifts on Yomtov?

Dear Rabbi,

Is there a problem with taking a gift, say a bottle of wine, to someone on Yomtov?

Thanks, Laura

Dear Laura,

Although there are those who are more stringent, it is allowed, as the wine (for example) is intended for use on Yomtov. This does not necessarily mean that the recipient must use it then, but of course he has the option to do so.
