I think; if "gift" is not plural, you should use singular as well for "they":

 

bu, onların hediyesi

 

instead of "hediyeleri" (are there many gifts or only one gift of many people?)

Because "-ler" is here making plural the gift. Not "they".

 

It may look some ambiguous, but for "onlar", you shouldn´t use "-ler". I don´t know the rules in books exactly but only if the name is plural, then use plural. But if the name is not plural, I would use more singluar form, instead of making the name plural as well.

The plural marking is a difficult thing for a beginner. I studied for three years and I still find it like a spiritual question. Don´t worry, kashf, it will come to you when it is time. The only thing we need to know is that plural marking in an English sentence does not always mean plural marking in the corresponding Turkish sentence. If I were you I would concentrate on the chains of suffixes for now.

 

But caliptrix is absolutely right about the correct and fluent form of these sentences of course.

Thank u abla , i agree with u. You always boost up my confidence so nice of u dear. Suffixes are much more confusing section but with the passage of time it will be clear.

If the object is in singular form (gift) that means you are talking about one thing. But the owners are many people. For that reason, I think there is no need to say as if there are many gifts. Instead, I propose using singular form of the name and 3. singular form of the suffix. Think same as ´HE´

Onların hediyesi 

OR 

In Turkish there is a form called ´Gizli Özne´ This means sometimes subjects can be hidden. You may not use the subject if it is obvious. You don´t have to repeat subject in each sentences you make. If this is what you prefer (when you need, you will use this hidden form), then you can use the plural suffıx for the verb:

.... hediyeleri ...

 

I understand this looks confusing but I think this language is kind of ´deductive´ or ´totalitarian´ I mean, somethings you have to memorize and then day by day the puzzle parts will become together and then you will see the whole picture. But for being fast, don´t waste too much time by asking the reasons. (my humble opinion)

 

As a result, if you will say with onlar for a singular noun, think same as o

onların hediyesi

onların bilgisayarı

onların evi

onların bahçesi

if you will not say ´onlar´ for singular (or also plural) noun, then use the proper suffix you already learned

(onların) hediyeleri

(onların) bilgisayarları

(onların) evleri

...

 

For hidden, it is still good for me ´hediyesi´ only you may want to emphasize it, and then say hediyeleri
