    Smile ride vs lift

    Could you tell if there is any difference in meaning between the two phrases:
    1. "to give somebody a ride"
    2 "to give somebody a lift"

    When they describe a ride/lift to somewhere in a car, they have the same meaning, Snade.

    As RiverKid said when applied to giving someone a ride in a car, there is no difference.

    However, to give somebody a lift can also have another meaning, depending on context. It can mean to raise someone's spirits....make them feel better.
