The gift is hidden:

IN THE BASEMENT

Because:

The signs look like clocks, with 12 different positions.
The positions read: 8, [1], -, [7], 7, 4, -, 1, 0, [6], 4, [0], 4, [1], [7]
We can translate them to letters the following way:
Add 1 to each number
Add 12 to each circled number
a '-' is a space
Resulting in:
9, 14, -, 20, 8, 5, -, 2, 0, 19, 5, 13, 5, 14, 20
Which gives the answer written above

Now go and run to get the gift!
