Band 7.5 IELTS letter sample

Dear Adam,

Congratulations on your new abode! I hope you have settled down already. I am extremely sorry that I couldn’t make it to your housewarming ceremony. That said, my gift is on the way.

I have painted a nice portrait of you and Cindy as a gift.  It is oil painted and framed with teakwood in 12*12 dimensions. I was planning to hand it over to you myself but unfortunately I am out of town for a few weeks. Hence, I have couriered it through Blue Dart today and you should receive it within 2-3 days. As both of you would be at work during the day time, I’ve asked them to deliver it in the evening.

You remember our last summer trip to Barbados where I clicked a picture of you two siting on the beach with a beautiful sunset in the background. I know that’s your favourite picture from that vacation and that’s why I chose to paint it. You can hang the painting in your living area and I am sure it will brighten up your mood.

Hope to meet you soon.

Yours Lovingly,
