Particle は: Marking Contrastive Elements

If you want to create sentence in which the first of the part the sentence states one thing yet the second sentence states another you want to use は to mark the contrastive elements in the sentence.

クリスマスは好きですが、ハロウェーンは嫌いです。
I like Christmas but I don't like Halloween.

カタリナさんにはヴイットンをあげました。エラーさんにはヂオルをあげません。
I gave a Vuitton to Katharina and I gave a Dior to Ella.

Notice how in this sentence は was connected to に however は is never attached to を and が.

You used "-imasen" though on the second sentence.
You probably meant "-masu" ?
