You should say:

- when and where you went on this holiday
- what you did with it after you brought it home
- and explain whey you thought it was special.
Sample Answer 1
Let me tell you about a souvenir/oil painting I bought in the famous Beachfront Markets Festival during my last Australian trip in December 2012. That was a memorable place where I strolled along the beach, stopped at every stall selling a variety of premium products, including fashion, jewellery, accessories, artworks, photographs, and homewares, along with other treasure hunters, bargain spotters and after-dinner walkers all around me in Surfers Paradise, Golden Coast.
I bought the oil painting from a beautiful lady, it was gorgeous and about the peaceful lake with trees and rocks. It was painted by her mother actually, and it wasn’t expensive, but I had to admit that both of the two ladies looked so stunning that I made my mind to buy the works.
Now the oil painting is hanging on the wall of my dining room. It looks great, every guest to my home will appreciate it a lot. And I’m really into it because I took it from such a remote country that has a different cultural background, and partly because it was a really exciting trip during the Beachfront Markets Festival where I met two beautiful women.
