a.    Inter Vivos gifts given during the donor’s life.  i.e. Gruden
b.    Causa Mortis gifts are given after death.  There is a higher standard for delivery because courts do not want to threaten the statute of frauds requiring writing.  i.e. Newman
i.    The gift, though usually given after death, must actually be made in apprehension of death, i.e. the deathbed gift.
ii.    Operates as a will requiring 2 witnesses even though it isn’t a will
