Freeform Writing Exercise A2
You wouldn’t use ‘offrir’ in the context of sweets but if your grand-mère bought you something more substantial you might say -
Ma grand-mère m’a offert une jolie montre = My grand mother has bought me a lovely watch
Hope this helps!
"She used to buy us sweets" would use the verb acheter. If you said "Elle nous offrait des bonbons" it would be more like "She used to give us sweets."
