Sample Answer:


On the occasion of my 22nd birthday I received a brand new black dress from my mom. It was a perfectly made dress with the finest clothing and fits. The fabric was of matt finish and the colour texture was impressive. I’m so glad on receiving it.

My mother came up to me before the party with a little silver parcel with a red bow. I knew that she had some amazing surprise planned for me. But I had no idea as to what she could possibly get for me. In fact, it was out of my idea that she would bring me a little black dress. She is well aware of the love I have for black clothing’s. My mother is an amazing woman.

She loves to plan surprises for people, I was really impressed with her choice and my mom was equally happy to complete her goal. She bought a matching pair of wedges to go along with the dress. I was so happy that she could cater to all my needs without me asking her to do so.

Of course, it was an extraordinary gift to me. It was from the woman who has always been a source of inspiration to me. She is a very empathetic lady. I admire this quality of her. Besides, it was my birthday gift from her. I tried it on with sheer interest and absolutely loved it. Moreover, the dress was made of the colour I really like. The dress was very admired by all my friends and family. I couldn’t thank her enough for the dress.
