Sample 1

I am fond of the variety of clothes and have a good collection of the same. I love to wear warm clothing in the winter season. Today I would like to tell you about one of my gifts which I received from my maternal uncle. They gave me one warm jacket when I was 21. It was my birthday, and he gifted me that jacket. My uncle bought that jacket while returning from Gujarat from his business trip. I still have that jacket, and I used to wear it more often in the winter season. The jacket is so light to wear that you will not feel it; it’s feather-like lightweight. The jacket is so warm that you can wear it in sub-zero weather conditions as well. The cloth of the jacket is very soft and feels good. This jacket can be washed at home in the washing machine, which is unique because generally, all warm clothing are not advised to be washed at home and shall be dry cleaned, but this jacket surpassed all my expectations. The colour of the jacket is blue, which is my favourite colour. Even I was wondering for one blue colour jacket before I received it as a gift. This is a very special gift for me as I received it from my maternal uncle, who is so close to me, and this is an imported gift for me as he purchased it from Gujarat. It made me so pleased that he took time out from his business trip and went for shopping to purchase this jacket for me. I will never forget this and will always try to keep this jacket safe as much as possible.

Sample 2

Although there are numerous times, I received clothes as a gift from my relatives and from my close ones. I would like to depict one special person who gave me a special gift on my marriage anniversary. The gift was presented in November month last year, and the gift was a one-minute saree, and it is expensive to wear. My mother gave it to me as it is trending those days and I asked her once, so she gave it on my anniversary. The gift is pretty paramount because the saree was made from my mothers’ old saree, and it is a combination of 2 sarees, and she made it for me. I really appreciate her efforts, and I am glad after receiving the saree with a trendy design.
