1.   Consider the difference: (notice that one is plural and the other singular)

The Spirit gives “gifts of the Spirit” in 1 Corinthians 12:1-11.

As an example, consider the gift of tongues.

3. As a sign to the unbelievers (1 Corinthians 14:22, Acts 2:4-6) But all is God given; God orchestrated.
