I have been teaching in china and I am going home for a few weeks to visit family. I need to bring gifts and I dont know what to bring. They have all the traditional chinese gifts, such as tea, fans,e tc...what should I bring them?
Not sure how feasible or easy this task would be thou. You could try and get all your family members' Christian names and surnames written in China's language. I guess you would need to find someone who can speak English there and get them to translate the English names for the person drawing or writing the names.
I think the Mao watches are cool. You might also want to get some fake designer clothes and DVDs. And how about an orphan while you are at it :)
