IELTS Writing: Letter-Buying a present for a baby

Your friend recently had a new baby born and you have bought him/her a present.

Write a letter and say:
1. What is the present?
2. Why did you choose it?
3. Arrange a visit to give them the present and see the baby.

Hi Stephanie,

How are you? How’s the baby? Are you getting any sleep?

I know we haven’t seen each other for a long time but I’ve managed to organize some free time next week. I’d like to travel to see you and Ben and little Jasmine and spend some time with you. Would it be possible to stay overnight with you? If it would be awkward, I understand, and I can always book a hotel nearby.

I found this lovely baby blanket the other day and I just couldn’t resist it, it’s beautiful. I hope you like it, I think you will. It’s made of the softest material and I almost wanted to sleep in it myself cos it was so soothing. It’s amazing!

I remembered you telling me about the blanket you had when you were a little baby and that’s why I thought it would be the perfect gift for little Jasmine.

Please write soon.

Lots of love
