SAMPLE ANSWER

Choosing a gift for someone is not an easy task because we always want to make sure that the person receiving the gift really likes and appreciates our choice. For this reason, I always spend a lot of time to select the appropriate gift which suits the choice and personality of the receiver.

Today, I would like to share one such incidence when I spent a whole day to purchase a gift. It was my best friend’s 18th birthday. She was my classmate in Class 5 and since then we have grown very close over the years. Though I know her well but I was really confused about selecting a gift for her and thought about it for days. She is a voracious reader and I was unable to decide whether to gift her a book or something to mark her stepping into adulthood.

Finally, I decided to buy a book for her as I know she is a bookworm. Few days before her birthday I went to several bookshops but couldn’t find an appropriate book in spite of spending the whole afternoon. Eventually, I went to a bookstore which is in the suburbs of our city. Despite being far, it is famous for its collection. The best part is the owner recommends excellent books as per the personality of the readers.

I reached the bookstore by late evening and they were about to close. I requested the owner to help me quickly choose a book for my friend’s 18th birthday. He suggested a collection of 4 books which were a compilation of life lessons by a renowned author. I immediately bought the set and went home. When I gifted the book set to my friend she was delighted to have it. She thanked me and hugged me. I really felt happy to have spent so long to buy a special gift for her.
