What should you give to your Russian friend?

When traveling in Russia, gift giving is different than in North America or Western Europe. Women appreciate receiving cosmetics, because they also are scarce in almost all Eastern European countries. When giving flowers, avoid giving those that are yellow, as this is a sign of grieving or separation. When invited to a home, it is proper social etiquette for a guest to bring a bottle of wine or chocolate, but nothing too expensive. Vodka is always an acceptable gift.
