Eric and Tina have been friends since high school. Tina and her husband would regularly socialise with Eric and his wife. On Eric’s birthday, every year Tina would buy him a birthday present worth somewhere between $50 and $100. Eric’s full-time job is as an obstetrician at a major public hospital.

A month later, when Eric’s birthday came around, Tina bought him an expensive watch valued at $4,000. With it she gave him a card that read “Thanks for being a great friend and lifesaver”. She also gave the two nurses who assisted Eric in delivering her child necklaces worth $800 each. ignoring capital gains tax, discuss whether receipt of the watch constitutes assessable income for Eric.
