    1. She gave him it. Possible. She gave it to him is more natural, in my opinion

    2. She made it for her.


    3. Before dinner
    are is a good time to read.

    4. We elected Deva our new treasurer. Fine.

    For the second question, can you explain a little bit about it?
    What if I change the the sentence to this:
    She made it hers.
    Is it still acceptable?

    'She made it for her'. One female made/constructed/knitted/cooked/etc one thing for another female; she did this to save the other person some work, or to give it to the other person.

    'She made it hers'. One female acted in such a way that somrthing became recognisably hers.
