Today you’ll get amazing vocabulary for gifts and presents to use in IELTS answers.

The topic of gifts and presents has come up in Speaking Part 1 recently, but this topic could be seen anywhere on the Speaking Exam, or even in Writing Task 2.

Lindsay and I did a podcast episode about it, episode 547, where we provided sample answers to Speaking Part 1 questions about this.

The vocabulary today is very high-level, and would score highly on any part of the IELTS Exam.
