The Gift is the first solo album by former Ultravox frontman Midge Ure, released in 1985. It was released while Ultravox were taking a break; the band would go on to release U-Vox before splitting. The album reached in the UK Albums Chart partly due to the large attention drawn to it by the single "If I Was" which reached in the UK Singles Chart in September 1985.

Midge Ure. The Gift ‎(CD, Album). Chrysalis, Chrysalis. His "bono-esque" self-importance aside (hence the ambiguous title of the album), Ure's brilliance as an artist cannot be underestimated, especially evident shining all the way through this, a debut solo album of his. Squeezed somewhere between the experimental and the 80s' cheesiness, "The Gift" is a downright masterpiece spot-on.
