(Describe a situation when you received money as a gift.)

There has been a tremendous increase in gift giving over the past few years. Gifts express the love and affection of the giver towards the receiver.

What was the occasion?

Occasion was when my senior secondary exams (or it could be graduation results ) got declared and I got first position in my district.

It was an amazing moment because I won first place in the district and I can still see the entire episode.

In the beginning, I was apprehensive about my result since the results had not been announced yet. (apprehensive means I was a bit scared, afraid or penic). 

My initial reaction was apprehension because I have always been above average in my class, but when I found out the results, I felt delighted. (I felt extremely happy with this). 

Who gave it to you?

When I got to know the result I rushed straight away towards my grandmother and she felt on the seventh heaven on listening to this great news.( on the seventh heaven means again extremely happy ).

She hugged me and thanked God. She gifted me thousand rupees as a token of love and now my happiness knew new bounds because I was double happy. I got my result that was excellent and now I got 2000 rupees also.

What did I do with that money?

Actually, at that time I was saving money for a smart watch. I wanted to purchase a smart watch, since it was a little expensive so I didn’t have sufficient money for it but now after getting that amount of money I have enough money now. Next day, I went to the market and I purchased my favorite smart watch which makes my life richer.

In the end I would say that giving money is far better since the receivers can utilize the money to fulfil their needs.
