Tips on Giving a Gift
Do remember to remove the price tag.
A gift with a price tag is a hint to the receiver that the gift is expensive, and that the sender is expecting a gift of the equal price.
Don’t give the gift publicly, especially if giving a gift to only one person in a group (to avoid embarrassment, an appearance of favoritism, etc.).
Do not visit a recently bereaved family at Spring Festival, if the Chinese family had the funeral less than a month before Chinese New Year, as this is said to be unlucky (bringing more funerals in the coming year).
Take a pair of gifts with you, as Chinese people believe that good things should be in pairs.
