Asians get red pockets with cash. Don't give them a gift, they'll be pissed.

Red envelope with $60 in it (if you go by yourself) or $120 in it (if you bring a date).

A nice sake set? Even if their not Japanese, everyone like sake. I think. Except for people who don't drink I guess.

And a sake set not in the sense of the glass/ceramic flask and cups but rather a combination of like 3-5 different sakes. Well, I just looked and doesn't look like these exist however you could be creative and buy different kinds on your own and put it together in a wodden box or something. Make it look classy like those liquor sets they sell. Probably can order everything through amazon. Guessing like $50 for everything. Also by different, I don't mean just brand. Look into the types of sake.

Orrrrrr......just do the flask and cups sake set. More conventional a gift I suppose.

Cheap, yet thoughtful and useful.

Not a bad concept imo. Why go buy something that someone might not need, when everyone needs cash?

Everyone expects you to pay them to come to their wedding. White people take money too.

Cash is a good gift if you don't know the people well anyway.

no, it's practical. it helps them pay off wedding expenses and start off their new lives not in debt. wtf would we want a bunch of junk we most likely already have anyways?
