Hi evapapa,

Perhaps you may get some fruits to the family when you visit them. And if there's a kid in the family, toys or
candies are also a good choice. :)

Regards
Vanessa

for the boy...how about special s$$ps( s t a m p s) and first day issued envelopes from your country ...something very light but educational and worth to keep or pass to next generation.

If I were the boy, I won't mind to receive some s t a m p books from flea market..old and rare

Anything good for health i think.
We always sent fruits to close friends. Sometimes we do not  sent anything.  If u sent a costly gift, the meaning is very complcated,  They will think  u want to get some benefits  from them, or anything else such as wanna help. So It judge by the status

If you know that more info. abt  couple. eg. age, job, hobby...

You can present perfume for the lady if she is not too old. Hmm, I don't think most Chinese old ladies use it but the young will enjoy it.

Hm, for the man...

My tutor's family invited me to stay with them for a few days after the Chinese New Year last year. I had my parents send me some high-quality chocolates from home (there is a company in my state that is known for this) to express my thanks, and I think it was a good gift. Try to think of something that's unique to where you're from. If you want to do clothing items, think of things like maybe mittens that aren't too size-specific and are useful.

Hi eva,

I think your idea is a good one. But first you need to know the size of the boy. :)

They'll like the gift from you.
