    Default a share of present

    Say a friend of mine has given me delicious chocolates.
    I'm giving some of them to another friend of mine.
    Which works?
    1. Here is a share of present for you.
    2. Here is a share of a present for you.
    3. Here is a share of the present for you.
    Thank you.

    Well, I wouldn't use those particular examples in that context, but if you're asking which of the three works best, I'd have to choose 3.

    3. Here is a share of the present for you.

    You're welcome.

    What about?

    Max: Would you like some? They're a gift and I would like to share them with you.
    Sam: Sure! Thanks.
