The Huffington Post just published The Top 6 Gifts Sure To Please Your Chinese Family, an article inspired by my classic post Giving Gifts to Your Chinese Family – A Modest Guide. Here’s an excerpt:
Buying gifts for someone else never ranked as one of my top 10 most fun things to do. Not even back in America, where I grew up.
But after moving to China and marrying a Chinese local, it became even more of a headache. After all, China is a country that takes gift giving seriously, complete with its own gift-giving customs and etiquette. Now I would have to navigate all of these cultural rules to buy for my family in China, the people I’d be seeing every single year.
Cue the panic attack.
Fortunately, after years of experience in buying gifts for my Chinese family, I’ve learned it’s actually a lot easier than I thought. And sometimes, it can even be fun – if you know what to buy.
Head on over to the Huffington Post to read the full piece and discover my top gift picks. And if you like it, share it!
