You can give away up to $15,000 per year, per beneficiary, with no gift tax consequences to the recipient or yourself. This strategy can be as easy as writing a check to each of your loved ones during the holidays. The assets you give away using the annual gift tax exclusion do not count toward the lifetime exemption.
