Q: Gift ideas for family back home.

Anyone have any gift ideas other than booze or cigarettes to bring back to family back in Canada. I'm kind of looking for something Chinese themed but also unique.

Depends on who you're giving the gifts to really but off the top of my head...

 

Tea sets, ornamental fans, scroll type paintings, Mao's little red book if you're near Beijing, ornate chopstick sets, those good luck knotted red rope things (I forgot what they're called) you see hanging in living rooms etc, traditional type clothing all jump to mind.

A:Dont know where they got those answers from, you DO need two shot Chinese vaccine done at least 15 days prior to travel, but, you wont be entering anyway as ESL teachers are not considered essential workers. I have been here 17 years, double vaccinated 5 moonths ago, coulfnt even get an ETD to go home and bury my mother and was firmly told i would be denied entry, as if i am leaving my wife a kid behind.  -- markymarc1972
