    It means roughly "to move in a meaningful way" (I'm sure someone will pop in here with an actual dictionary definition) and can mean either a physical movement of the body or something that is shown through your actions, i.e. "He gestured to me to be quiet." as opposed to "He donated his old toys as a gesture of kindness."

    a gesture refers mostly to a hand gesture or sometimes a gesture of kindness.

    The crossing guard gestured that it was ok to cross the street by giving us a wave.


    She was given a bouquet of flowers as a gesture of thanks from the group for doing such hard work.

    I'm sure that if you look up the word, you will then know how to use it correctly.

    The word gesture means in the form of a noun: The motion of hands or body to help express a feeling or thought.

    The word gesture means in the form of a verb: express thru movement.

    Used in a sentence:
    Sydney made a gesture with her hands to a dress she wanted to purchase.
