Gift The exchange of gifts reflects the relationship you have with the environment. Dreaming that someone makes you a gift could mean that others take you into consideration and offer you help or that there will be an unexpected or unasked for event in your life. In either case, it is an omen of good luck, as much as in material issues as in love. In contrast, if you give someone a gift, there are two opposing interpretations. On the one hand, it indicates that you are generous. On the other, it is synonymous with tensions and disputes of any kind.

Example: ‘On a hot summer day I was walking with a beautiful black woman through countryside. She stopped and told me she had a problem.
To show me she pulled down the strap of her dress. On her shoulder the black skin was peeling to reveal golden white skin underneath. She said that if she kept seeing me she would become completely white. She was going to ask advice from her mother about what to do. As we walked on two black men fought with me. They wanted to take her back to the village. I woke feeling I was winning’ (paraphrased from The Way of The Dream, Fraser Boa). Here the dreamer is relating well to his own feelings of sexuality and sensuality. However, he is beginning to see a female partner as a real person, not just as his sexuality paints her. Also, the reference to seeking advice from the mother suggests his ability to love is still not freed from emotional and erotic connections with his mother, and needs transforming. One often hears people, even in their 40s, saying It is difficult (developing a relationship) with that person because my mother doesn’t like them.’ The dreamer ‘fights’ the opposing drives, which want to take the man’s love back to the village, his childhood level of love—thus he moves towards becoming independent in love and life.
The transformation is towards mature love and relatedness.

A landscape may change from dark to light (negativity to positivity), a person may change from masculine to feminine or one image may change into another. Once the dreamer understands the change is for the better, he is able to accomplish changes in his own life.
As the growth to maturity takes place, there are many transformations which occur. These arc often depicted in dreams as immediate changes, like a speeded-up camera filming an opening flower.
Transformation takes place in spiritual terms when freedom of thought or action is indicated, or when higher impulses are substituted for lower reactions.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Bizarre transformations of objects into living things, such as a pencil turning into a snake, a doll into a donkey or a table into a swarm of wasps, suggest untapped potential within you that can help you cope with change. To clarify what this potential is, refer to the symbolic interpretation of the objects that have been transformed. Shape-shifter dreams, in which people you know suddenly transform into something else, typically a monster or beast, represent unpredictable people in your waking life. For example, someone might be kind and caring towards you until they transform under the influence of alcohol. On the other hand, the shape-shifting may be some kind of moral test.
Can you uncover the beauty behind the monster’s mask? What lies below the outer skin of the dream beast? Try to make a connection to your waking life.
Sudden changes from winter to spring in a dream, or from night to day, may also suggest new directions and developments in the dreamer’s life.
If the other way round, and the switch is from day to night, or spring to winter, this may suggest the need to confront and deal with dangerous impulses.
If the landscape suddenly becomes unfamiliar in your dream, this can point to an unwillingness or an inability to cope with the new. However, if the new environment is welcoming and friendly this is a positive sign. A return to the comfort of the childhood home or a familiar environment is widely interpreted by Freudians and Jungians as a desire to return to the security of the womb during times of change and conflict.
If something is transfigured in a dream, such as when an object or person is surrounded by light, this suggests that light has entered the person during a period of transition and they are becoming more self-aware.
If you become invisible in your dream, it can indicate that you feel ignored in waking life—that you and your life are insignificant to others. It can also mean that you are hiding from others or yourself.
If you have this type of dream, it might be time to look at how you present yourself to other people.... The Element Encyclopedia
Therefore if she dreams that her father transforms into another man, this indicates some kind of positive or negative change in her perception of men, although much depends on the circumstances of the dream and the woman’s feelings about it.
Dreams in which parents, family members or partners behave completely out of character—for example, your gentle mother transforms into a cruel tyrant or your teetotal father transforms into a raging alcoholic—can be extremely unsettling, as they turn what you regard as accepted truths on their heads. Such dreams have little to do with real-life family members or loved ones; far more are they to do with unresolved aspects of either your life or yourself that you need to confront and work on in order to find fulfillment. In such cases, your unconscious mind may have conjured up parental or family archetypes to bring neglected issues to your attention or to warn you of an authority figure who presents a threat to you in waking life. For example, perhaps the controlling father in your dream represents your boss who is stifling your individuality, or your nurturing dream mother is telling you to mother yourself or someone close to you.
