Long explanation:

The Nounをいただく grammar point is used to express the action of receiving or accepting something in a polite or humble manner. The verb 'いただく' is a more respectful version of the verb 'もらう' (to receive), so using 'いただく' shows humility and respect towards the person who is giving you something.
