I am going to China with a friend of mine. His grandparents and parents have done a lot to see to our trip, and are giving my friend spending money to pay our way around China for 2 weeks. I leave Monday and will have a 12 hour flight plus layovers to do this stuff.
I would like to give them an appropriate gift. I can't afford too much because I am still a student, I feel like if I bought something it would seem cheesy and cheap to them.
So, I'm gonna *get crafty*
I have read up on it (since my friend has been no help!) and found that gifts representative of your hometown or homeland are acceptable and appreciated. Here are the people and some tentative ideas:
Grandma (China born and raised)- an embroidered scarf, with an image of a Luna moth (native to the US, really beautiful)
Mom (born in China, lives in US)- something like grandma?
Any help would be much appreciated!!
I will buy something if that is a solution, as long as it's not too much.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for any input.
