There is no earthly gift of value to lay as an offering before God.  I learned this a few years ago when a vision of Heaven opened up to me a few years ago.  (You can read about this vision in my book, “Light from a Dark Night)

When standing in the presence of God we come with nothing.  No earthly attachments, no earthly deeds, no earthly clothes, no earthly honors of any kind.  
We are all we have.

Our own spirit, our own soul, and our own body.

Therefore, when we stand before God and desire to lay a gift at His feet; the highest gift of worth or value is our own self.  Because, we are the gift.  

Us? A gift?  Yes! The gifts with the highest value are those which are one of a kind, rare, precious and costly. All of which we are.  So next time you desire to be in God’s presence but don’t feel like you have anything of worth to bring just remember you are worth something to Him. You were created to be one of a kind, special and with great, never to be seen again rare value. A God- given gift to the world.
