What kind of presents do you like and why? What are the things you keep in mind when you buy presents for others? Discuss with your partner. (For example, you might buy a book because it can be read and re-read over a period of time.)
I like to give and receive books for presents. Books are one’s best friend for life, you can read them in the privacy of your room after a long day or quietly in public when travelling. You can also exchange books with friends who like to read and talks to them about it, it is a good way of making good conversations and friends. I keep in mind the taste of the person when I am buying books for someone, like my war like to read about history while my mother likes to read poems. I like to gift popular fiction to my friends and discuss the plot and characters of the story at lengths.
