Gift: IELTS Speaking Part 2 Questions & Sample Answers

Describe a gift that you would like to receive in the future.

You should say:

  • what the gift is
  • why you would like to receive it
  • how you imagine it would make you feel

and explain why this particular gift is important to you.

Sample Answer:

I would love to receive a travel voucher as a gift in the future. The gift of a travel voucher would give me the opportunity to explore new places and experience different cultures. It would allow me to fulfil my wanderlust and satisfy my curiosity about the world. Just the thought of being able to plan a trip to a dream destination excites me. It would make me feel a sense of anticipation and joy, knowing that I have the chance to embark on a memorable adventure. This particular gift is important to me because it aligns with my passion for travel and my desire to create lasting memories. With a travel voucher, I can choose a destination that has always been on my bucket list and make my travel dreams come true.

Describe a meaningful gift you have given to someone.

You should say:

  • what the gift was
  • who you gave the gift to
  • why you chose that particular gift

and explain how the recipient reacted to the gift.

Sample Answer:

A meaningful gift that I once gave was a handcrafted photo album to my best friend on her birthday. I carefully selected memorable moments we had shared together and printed the photos to create a personalised album. I chose this gift because it allowed us to reminisce about our cherished memories and celebrate our friendship. Her face lit up with joy and nostalgia when she received the gift. She laughed and cried as we flipped through the pages, reliving those beautiful moments. She expressed her gratitude and mentioned how much the gift meant to her.

It was heartwarming to see her reaction and the emotions it evoked. The photo album served as a tangible representation of our bond and shared experiences. It brought us even closer and reminded us of the value of our friendship. Witnessing her heartfelt reaction made me realise the power of thoughtful and meaningful gifts in strengthening relationships.
