About:China Customs Declaration

I want to mail gifts from th U.S. to friends in China. But the U.S. Postal Service has a list of things that Chinese government says is prohibited. Guns, ammo, meat, etc., I can understand those. But it also lists jewelry, Wrist-watches, cameras, etc., as prohibited, and CDs or DVDs seem to be restricted too.

I was thinking of sending inexpensive women's jewelry (like $40 or $50 USD, not diamonds and emeralds). But it looks like even inexpensive jewelry is a no-no. Can you give me any suggestions on what would be an appropriate birthday gift for a good lady friend - something that wouldn't be confiscated by customs? Thanks.

Really? I think you should find a express shipping company. If there is extra rate while entering Chinese custom, they would pay for that too. If the shipping company say no, you may gave her ornament like Scarf, Brooch Buckle, handicrafts, etc. Just for examples.
