Here is the sample for “describe a gift you gave that took a long time to choose” topic

Choosing a gift for someone is usually an arduous task because you want to make sure that the person who is receiving should like it. For that reason, I always spend a lot of time picking gifts for my relatives and friends. The longest I took to pick a gift was for my little sister.

It was her 5th birthday, and I wanted to give her something memorable and unique. I decided to go to a “Build-a-bear workshop” to buy her a stuffed bear. At this shop, you spend time picking materials to build your furry friend, from the cotton inside to the clothes outside. You also get to give this teddy bear a heart and a voice recorder, so that when you squeeze it, it would say whatever you recorded before. After building the stuffed toy, the store would give him or her a birth certificate with a name and birthday.

My little sister was so happy when she received the bear. Well, kids always love a furry friend anyway. However, what was special was that as she grew up, she understood how much love I had put in the bear when building it for her at the store, so she appreciated the gift even more.
