I’d like to buy gifts occasionally for some Taiwanese people. The idea would be to thank them / acknowledge them for doing something to help me. I’m thinking of the helpful post office lady, or Chinese teachers who co-teach/assist, etc.
As a prompt, if I were doing this in the U.S., I’d probably give a small gift certificate to a local restaurant with accompanying thank-you card, a (non-heart-shaped) box of chocolates, or some candy. I don’t want to give some gift that might be offensive or misleading. Not always, but most often, the recipients just happen to be women (I’m not).
Appreciate any help,
