On the other hand, your unconscious may have simply allowed you to give vent to feelings of resentment in the safety of the dream world.
If you dreamed that you refuse to comply with your boss, or with someone who gives you directions in waking life, this may reflect your mounting anger or exhaustion in the face of demands and responsibilities being placed upon you.
If you felt liberated in your dream, perhaps this is a sign that you need to stand up for yourself more in waking life.
If you were involved in a mutiny, do you long to rebel against authority? If you went on strike, such a dream may reflect feelings of frustration and exhaustion in waking life.

Try to remember what you rebelled against in your dream and why, and see if you can draw a parallel in waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

We can say that in the most profound and ancestral aspect, the myth of the giant refers to the existence of an enormous living being, primordial, whose sacrifice originated creation. The giant’s figure—prevalent in ancient cosmological cultures—is neither benevolent nor malevolent, it is simply a quantitative magnification of the ordinary reality; therefore, as appropriate, there are legendary protective and aggressive giants. In Jungian psychology, their presence seems to correspond with the symbol of the father, representing the spirit that places obstacles to the instinctive impulses. Other interpretations assign a sexual nature to the giant. This dream can mean that the subject’s sexual needs are disproportionate.
The oneiric giants portend commercial successes.
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. The way in which the present is wrapped and what it is made of supplies valuable additional information.
Receiving a gift in dreams could foretell disadvantages. But, if you give it, it means that you will soon start a new project.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

An encounter with a giant or ogre in your dream suggests an uphill struggle in waking life. The giant or ogre may also be a symbol of insecurity or feeling small, perhaps reminding you of your childhood when adults seemed huge. Maybe you had a dream in which you were running as fast as you could from an ogre, a hideous giant-like being who seemed intent on devouring you.
If you had a nightmare like this, it could represent your father or some other figure of masculine authority, such as a demanding teacher. On the other hand, a dream giant may represent spiritual or physical power. A giant among men in your dream may be a guide who comes to give you spiritual insight.
Not all giants are ogres, and maybe you dreamed of being rescued from the ogre’s clutches by a gentle giant, perhaps another influential figure in your life who you respect for their moral courage. Any towering presence in your dreams tends to represent either something that poses a problem to you, or someone whose power makes you feel protected, or small and helpless....

One of the most common dreams of early childhood is that there is something scary in the bedroom: a monster in the wardrobe or aliens in the corner of the room. A child may feel as if something or someone is coming to get them. These kinds of dreams tend to reoccur and it is easy to assume that something is upsetting the child in waking life; it is worth noting, however, that these dreams are amongst the most common in childhood, as a child reaches out to discover the world with all its excitement—and sometimes dangerous possibilities.
If there is tension in the home or a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency, this can trigger stressful dreams for a child. Scary monsters tend to represent people, whereas bugs or slimy things may represent situations. You may have to be patient and gentle, and create a feeling of stability as your child learns to adjust to changes in the world around them.... The Element Encyclopedia
