Emotionality
The gifts should embody your emotions. As a symbol of friendship, the meaning lies in the emotions it conveys rather than the gift itself, for the emotions cannot be measured with money. Therefore, when choosing a gift, you should put your emotions into it. The best gift should be of high quality with low prices and has some bit of memorable meaning or artistic values, such as souvenir, books and albums of paintings.
 
Besides, the values of the gifts should be suitable. Not the high values of gifts embody your deep emotions. The gifts should be decided according to the physical conditions, social status and personal taste of your Chinese parents-in-law. For instance, if they are not very healthy, you can send nutrients, health products, massager, etc. If they like sports, you can send some sports equipment. If they have good education background and high social status, then the gifts should not be luxurious. You can send some elegant gifts, such as paintings and calligraphies and artworks. If they are retired workers, the gifts should be practical and have utility values, like fruit, clothes and health products. All in all, you’d better ask the advice of your Chinese girlfriend and make the best choice.
 
Adaptability
When choosing a gift, you should take the local customs into account. In any case, you should avoid your Chinese parents-in-law being offended by your gifts. For example, in China, the old don’t like the clock, for in Chinese pronunciation, the clock means the end of life. Therefore, before visiting your parents-in-law, you should have a general idea about Chinese customs.
 
Creativity
Generally speaking, many people don’t like their gifts similar with others. Thus, you should be creative in choosing the gifts. When receiving a unique gift, your Chinese parents-in-law are bound to be excited and moved, for it is a special gift only for them. They will be happy to marry their daughter to you.
 
The purpose of sending gifts is to impress your Chinese parents-in-law. This is just a start and you should work hard continuously in the future life.
