Why did Antonio get a gift but not Mirabel?

What magical gift does Antonio receive at his ceremony?
He was worried for nothing, however, since the ceremony blessed him with the ability to speak with animals.

Perhaps because of this, Antonio's gift ensured he would never feel alone again.
Who has the most useful gift in Encanto?
Mirabel's mother, Julieta, can heal anyone with her cooking. This ability goes great with her nurturing and loving personality, and makes her one of the most useful Madrigals in Encanto. The movie doesn't deeply explore Julieta's gift, but it's likely the town doesn't have a doctor.
How does Antonio receive his gift in Encanto?
Mirabel comforts Antonio as he worries that, like her, he may not receive a gift.
