Gifts for your girl friend. When you want to give a gift with meaning that will become a treasured keepsake, consider giving a personalized Poetry Gift. It is so refreshing to read the replies and comments from all of the folks you have helped. Why not give a personalized gift that can be enjoyed all year round. Gift giving has been a lot less painful since I married a Chinese man. I have heard many stories over the years at the dinner table of families fleeing attacking soldiers and being forced to hide and live in caves in the mountains. When I got married, my Chinese in-laws gave my family gifts including jade, knit scarves, fine green tea and smoked tofu. My wife and I are curious to know if we should be giving gifts back to them. Did I have any suggestions? Any other tips for someone her age?
