The Gift is a 1996 holiday album by country music superstar Kenny Rogers.

This fourth Christmas album brought Rogers back to the charts, both with the album itself (#10 on the country charts, #63 pop and #1 on the Christmas and Christian charts), but also with a single ("Mary, Did You Know?" with Wynonna Judd made it to #55 on the country charts).

The Gift was originally released in 1996 on the independent Magnatone Records. Rogers left the label in 1997, and since then Curb Records has taken over what was issued on Magnatone and re-released The Gift for the 2002 Christmas season.
