What ideas would anyone have for a welcome gift for a visiting Chinese man, wife, and teen son. Mainly ideas for the student. We have some good ideas for the woman. Thanks.

Box of Marlboros ? Alcohol (especially Whiskey), set of tea glasses - crystal, some type of dessert (risky), Starbucks gift card - that's all I got.

High school student might not be able to use those. His father might.
I do no what would be at the bottom on a possible list = gift card for a Chinese restaurant.
We'll inquire as to what American restaurants the family likes over there and they may not frequent those restaurants very often but enjoy them here.

Is it something for them to use here, or take back with them to use in their country? How long do they plan to be here? I would check out what would NOT be considered an acceptable gift, something that might be an insult or bad luck in their country.

You could give the man an American alcohol that is not common in China. Perhaps a whiskey or something along those lines. Perhaps give the woman some kind of decorative item like. horse statue, something not very big obviously so they can take it back.

Chocolate is still a luxury item in China. MM's are imported and sold in upscale stores. Give them a nice box set of chocolates.

Stay will be several months.
Good comment, likely something to take home. Maybe a gift card to buy what they want. I doubt gift cards are common place in their country.
