    I've always pronounced it like "jiff" and horrendously ridiculed anyone who says it like "giff" for they are fools of the highest calibre.

    I declare that the 'g' is silent.

    Everyone in this thread is now wrong.

    It's jif. Has no one ever heard of a soft G? Besides, gif makes whoever's saying it sound like a moron.

    Gib = "gib".
    Gid = "gid".
    Gif = "jif".
    Gift = "gift".
    Gig = "gig".
    Gil = "gil".
    Gimp = "gimp".
    Gin = "jin".
    Gipsy = "jipsy".
    Giraffe = "jiraff".
    Gist = "jist".
    Git = "git".
    Give = "give".

    It goes both ways. Could easily be either.
