Q: What are good gifts for weddings in China?

One of my Chinese friends will get married soon. What kind of gifts are typically given here? Is there anything I shouldn't give?

How about some thing like lover's cup, bedside lamp, a bike, etc. You sould decide how much money you want to spend first.

I find that actual presents aren't that great or appreciated in China. It's best to give a hongbao with cash.

Complete fail-safes are expensive cigarettes (which won't actually set you back that much, especially compared to Western prices), or some baijiu. But don't go buying that cheap shit, get Maotai or Wuliangye.... it's somebody's wedding after all! And if you don't know which fags to get, just get the ones with the shiniest box... they're generally the most expensive.

I don’t know why we have this tradition in China, give Hongbao. I personally really don't like this. Money feels just too cold. I would love to give a gift, last long enough and usefully that my friends will always use and remember about our friendship.

Agree with Hongbao! You can just ask other people go together with you how much should be suitable.

Agree with Hongbao! You can just ask other people go together with you how much should be suitable. By the way, write some good words on it and signature.

When wedding, bring the big piggybank and make it ring, says the saying. Cash is your only option

i guess these day people give the money as they believe every one has their own taste of buying gift or product so the money is far option if not buy a watch for bride and for lady perfumes or other girls stiff can be fine . or you can buy a household product with giving hongbao for the couples.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
