Can "presente" also be a "gift"?

I wrote 'would like' which is the more polite way of saying this in English, but was marked wrong. Is this correct?

No. I would like=Eu gostaria. Conditional is different from present tense.

i dont think the portuguese translation is polite, but it depends on the context, the pitch... but "want" is still good enough here... =)
