What would be the prepositional phrase, subject, and verb phrase in this sentence?
The gift was from John and his sister.
Let me point out first that I am far from an English major and you should use additional resources but this is the way I see it.
prepositional phrase--from John and his sister
DrBob222 is exactly right.

It's a fun site, and it even has a place where you can quiz yourself to see how your understanding is coming along.
I THINK THE VERB IS.... FROM.. THE PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE IS... JOHN AND HIS SISTER.. AND THE SUBJECT IS.. THE GIFT.
