I've never sent rice cakes because someone told me you should eat them within a day or so after they're made.

Yeah, since Korean rice cakes aren't made with preservatives, they don't last very long, so they should ideally be eaten within the same day they were made. They can be kept in the refrigerator or frozen in the freezer, but the taste and freshness just aren't the same.

I work in an office with 7 women, and don't know what to get. I've gotten small gifts myself ftom many of them the past year so I really feel I should. I guess the safe thing is to just bring food for everyone, but nit sure what to buy the day before that will still be fresh and appreciated.

That or a card + chocolate + cheap gift certificate, but im too lazy for that

Plate of cookies to be shared with the other teachers.
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

Used to do Costco cookies for general consumption. Cheap, easy, and good.

X-mas isn't big in Korea, as other've stated. More of a couples holiday than anything. If you're interested in a co-teacher, then maybe...?

acousticr, you shouldn't send rice cakes if they are ttot. But I'm sending packaged manju as it keeps much longer. I actually changed my mind about the citron tea and opted for messed up English stationery and some miniature wooden pots.

I've got a spare pair of Psy socks so it would be a shame to see them go to waste.

I usually just write Christmas cards for my coteachers and the principals and give them a package of Ferrero Rochers or a Toblerone bar and they seem to appreciate that.
