My father is medically fit and of sound mind. Can he gift his property by way of a Gift Deed? Can his minor niece accept it?

 A person with a sound mind can be a donor and who is competent to enter into any agreement. Minors cannot be a donor.

A minor is not considered capable of entering into a contract. Any person who receives the Gift or transfer made to him is a donee. A minor can be a donee; nonetheless, the Gift would have to be accepted by the guardian of the minor donee on behalf of him or her.
