(What it was)Today, I would like to tell you the time I bought an Iphone for my sister when she turned 18, which took me almost 2 months to prepare the gift.
(Who you gave it to)My sister was heavily fascinated about this wonder cutting-edge device and dreamed about owning one someday. Besides, it is also a useful tool which can help her studies be more efficient and keep in touch with foreign friends by making long-distance video calls.
(How you prepare )One day, I did a part-time job, which is tutoring English for children and started saving notes from there. After one month I found that I have saved very few amount to purchase the IPhone! Then, I actually had to spend time working at a restaurant at the same time. When I finally save enough money, I went to a mobile phone when they were having special deals and purchased an Iphone 7+ as hardly could I have another chance to buy this item at such a good bargain
(Explain why you spent a lot of time preparing it )Well, you know that cutting-edge devices, especially Apple products might cost an arm and a leg. I was on a tight budget that moment to make my sister’s dream turn into reality. However, what was special was that as she grew up, she understood how much love I had put in the phone when buying it for her.
