Sample Answer of Talk About a Flower You Received as A Gift
I received a flower on Valentine’s day last year, 14th February 2022. It was a rose flower, which had a fruity smell, and it was wrapped with two pieces of chocolates and delivered to my office right before I left the office.
My hubby gifted me this flower a few minutes before leaving the office for his scheduled dinner date.
It was gifted as a sign of his affection and love towards me. Secondly, the day marked our 3rd anniversary since we met, which was a big surprise to me since I had forgotten about it.
I loved it because the rose and parking were in my favourite colour, red, and most importantly, it had a love card with the most beautifully written love words I have ever read.
