Several things have been called gifts from the Gods. The Greek mythological figure Pandora literally means ("all gifts").

"Although Prometheus had warned his brother Epimetheus never to accept a gift from Zeus, when Hermes arrived with Pandora, Epimetheus took this beautiful evil thing, realizing later that she might be the very evil to mankind that his brother had mentioned."[1]
