Sample Answer

Over the years I have received many gifts on different occasions from many people. These consist of a variety of enticing presents that have touched my heart. Ranging from simple stationary and decoration trinkets to books and gadgets. It is a quite common phenomenon and I feel immensely happy to receive such thoughtful gifts.

As per my thought, the best present that I have ever got was a mobile phone. During my first year of college, I came to know about this smartphone that was just launched on the market. The phone had a lot of modern and rare features such as two cameras, increased memory, more speakers, and a large touchscreen amongst others. Made of tough materials the phone was durable and value for money. It was comparatively cheaper than the luxury smartphones available back then along with some class leading features.

On my birthday that year, my uncle visited me in college and spent some time with me. While leaving, he gave me a gift box and I instantly opened it. I was surprised to see the same phone lying in the box. I was delighted upon receiving this phone as a gift as my current phone was broken and I desperately needed a new one. It was the most thoughtful gift in my view as my uncle had put a lot of thought and effort into it. I was very happy and I hugged my uncle while thanking him profusely.
