A time when you received money as a gift

Although I remember many occasions when I was given cash as a gift. Here I would like to speak about a special occasion when I received money as a gift. It was my 17th birthday which I celebrated in June 2013. This was one of the happiest moments in my life. I had invited my friends and relatives to celebrate it with me. I celebrated it at my home. There was a large gathering of my friends and relatives. They had brought me nice gifts and cards.
Everybody started wishing me happy birthday after candles were blown by me. Then I cut the cake. I was then drowned in gifts which my friends and relatives had brought. Among those gifts was a festive envelope. When I read the name on it I saw. That it was given by my grandparents. I was surprised when I opened it. That envelope contained ten thousand rupees I thanked my grandparents for this. But at the same time, I asked them not to give me that much amount of money. But they told me that the money they gave me as a gift was a share of their savings which they had accumulated in their whole life.

They advised me to spend that money as per my joyous. I thought not to spend that money on useless things. Nor did I want to keep it at my home so I asked my father what to do with it. He suggested me to invest it in a bank. A few days later I went to a bank where I deposited the money as a fixed deposit for the next five years. Last year in I owned a huge profit on that money. The invested money had become almost double. So last year with that profit I purchased my grandparent's many clothes and footwear. They were very happy at that time.

A time when you received money as a gift (SAMPLE -2)

Money as a gift is extremely popular in my country. In fact, it can be called a tradition as well. People usually gift money to each other during weddings, birthdays etc  Today, I would like to talk about one such occasion, when I received money from someone instead of an actual gift item. The occasion was my 18th birthday.  And as per Indian laws, I became an adult on this day  My parents gifted me a motorbike on my birthday as I was now eligible to drive a motor vehicle  When my friends came to know about this, all of them wanted a party from me.
Unfortunately, I did not have much savings at that time, to give a party to my friends. But luckily my grandparents were visiting us during that time. They had come to spend their winters with us. I love my grandparents a lot, they are really humble and polite. They always teach me a lot of good moral values and they love me a lot as well. Since my grandparents are too old, they could not go to the market to buy a gift for me. Moreover, they were not sure about what gift they should buy for me, which will make me happy. So they decided it was best to give me money as a gift so that I can use it for buying anything I like.

Initially, I refused to accept the money but then my parents said I should not say no to the elders as it would be a disrespect to them.  I then thanked my grandparents and they gave me their blessings as well. I also told them that I had everything that I need but my friends were asking for a party so I will use that money for the purpose of celebrating my birthday.  My grandparents were happy that I was using the money to spend a good time and share happiness with my friends and not spending it alone on myself.  They wished me good luck for the party.  I had a great outdoor party with my friends.  So, this was one of the occasions when I received money as a gift and I used it for celebrating with my friends.
