Gifts

I think the whole idea of gifts is very interesting and it seems to me to quite important in Chinese culture. Some people find it very difficult to accept a gift. Saying things like “ You should not have bought me a gift “ “ I have done nothing to  deserve this gift” . We see receiving a gift as putting us under an obligation to the giver. Having received an unwanted gift I find it difficult to throw it away even though I don’t like it!
