IELTS Speaking Part 2Describe a gift you bought for others that took you a long time to choose

You should say:

  • what is was
  • who you gave it to
  • how you chose it
  • and explain why you spend long time choosing it

Sample Answer:

It was simply a set of tablespoons and forks that took long hours for me to find out. I noticed the spoons at the residence of one of my maternal uncles and asked him about the location where he bought from. But he replied that he had no ideas about the spoons and forks as he received them as gifts

In fact, it was a set of finely made spoons covered with simple designs. The spoons arrested my attention as those were different from the ordinary spoons. The medium-sized silver spoons were a bit heavier than the ordinary ones. The spoons were shining in the light. I was invited to the uncle’s house for a familial dinner and then noticed the spoons and forks. I have never seen such a combined attractive spoon set and wanted to have a batch for my family or to present someone I admire. The set contained twelve table spoons with twelve forks

After my graduation from Paris, I came to Singapore to handle our family business. There I met with Sally, one of my closest friends in Paris. She invited me to attend her marriage in Singapore as she had also settled there. Since I was invited as a guest, I needed to arrange for some gift to present her on the day. Accordingly, I planned for giving her the spoons. I knew that the bunch of spoons will make her happy and whenever she will use those they will remind her my gifts . As per my thought, I bought the spoons. There was a dozen of tablespoons accompanied with a dozen of forks. I also added a dozen of knives with the spoons to make it a complete set of dinner assistive instruments

Choosing was a difficult task for me. Firstly I am highly busy with my family business which deals with importing food crops and grains from different countries. Thereby, it was difficult for me to manage time to get the spoons. Besides, I was unaware to about the location where I could get the items. I had to visit different shopping malls and street markets to get them. Finally, I found the spoons at an importer’s store at a corner of a street market after a lot of troubles and visits to different markets

I had to spend a lot of time to get the items. It took nearly a week for me to get them and I had to visit different places each of the days. I spent a huge time to get the spoons as those were highly attractive. The outlooks of the spoons and forks were gorgeous and there was no excessiveness in the design. They were strong and it appeared to me that the spoons will be durable. Moreover, the seller said that there would be no dents or spots on the spoons and he assured that he would be responsible for any sort of damages within three years. So, I got the spoons and extended the list with the knives.
