Model Answer 1:
I like to give gifts to my family, friends and relatives on different occasions whenever I get an opportunity. These gifts, of course, could be anything, from a nice gift card and flowers to some fancy objects. But, today, I would like to about a time when I offered money as a gift.

It was about a couple of years ago when the birthday of my best friend’s nephew was approaching. The boy was about 6 years old who I used to treat just like my own nephew. But, he wasn’t exactly like other boys of his age as he didn’t have much liking for things like nice shoes, dres…

In my “not-so” short life, I have received several gifts from my family, friends and relatives, and all of them seemed to be special in one way or another. Today, I would like to talk about one such gift, a ‘pair of jeans”, which was important to me.

Not sure, why people still call it a “pair of jeans” even though it is just one “piece of clothing”, but whatever we choose to call it, I really liked my jeans pant when my uncle offered it to me as a gift after graduating from my high school about 15 years ago. By the way, it was a rather unexpected gift from my uncle he was nev…

Recently, I went to the birthday party of a little child living the opposite door of mine. I was invited as a guest at the party, and so I took a gift for the child. It was a nice Lego set. In fact, I picked the Lego set for some special reasons. Thank you so much for asking the question, and I will describe the entire event now.

Usually, Lego sets are used to make different structures and play with them. This is a perfect set of toys for the kids under years of old. Besides, the toy set also helps to make the kids smart and intelligent. They can exercise their ideas and intelligence in ma…

This is a great topic to discuss. I have recently received a special gift and it was a Kashmiri shawl. The shawl was brought for me from India.

This is a local shawl produced in the region of Kashmir which has a border both in India and Pakistan. Actually, a shawl is a kind of chador which is used to cover up the body in winters. The Kashmiri shawl is very useful during winter as it provides a mild heat that is required to protect people from the cold. I am glad that the shawl is comfortable and comes with a unique and attractive design. The length of the sha…

Last week I turned 19 and my parents celebrated my birthday. I got some of the best gifts of my life on this birthday and I think the books were the best of the bests.

I have received two books by my maternal uncle naming – ‘The Chocolate War’ by Robert Cormier and ‘Life As We Knew It’ by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Both the writers have beautifully illustrated some of the issues on the books which were unknown to me before reading them. In fact, the books have opened my eyes and I have learnt to think in some newer perspective.
