Talk Show Actor Doudou Hu Sheds Light On Challenges In Love Gifting
The common practice of giving meaningful gifts to show our appreciation for loved ones during festive seasons is definitely a good way to foster closer relationships. However, the art of selecting a “perfect” gift for a girlfriend has posed major challenges for most men in our midst. In a recent talk show, in addition to revealing the token of love that is coveted by most women, Doudou Hu also shed light on his personal gifting experiences.
Jewellery is the Favourite amongst Women

Chow Tai Fook PT G&W collection –Platinum necklace and bracelet
Chow Tai Fook Love Promise collection –Platinum couple rings
How, then, should boyfriends choose a suitable gift? Through his findings from the “Precious Metal Jewellery Acquisition Study For China 2020”, Doudou realized that precious jewellery is in fact the token of love that women look forward to receiving the most. These include rings and necklaces from renowned jewellery brands, which greatly outrank other luxury items such as skincare and make-up products, designer bags and fine watches. Doudou puts it well when he said on the talk show that make-up and bags can be switched out frequently, but the moment a woman adorns herself with a jewellery piece, it becomes harder to replace. In turn, the man who gave her the jewellery would become irreplaceable in her heart. Not only can jewellery commemorate the major milestones of a couple’s journey of love, it can also serve as a clear expression of love and dedication towards each other. Turns out that a man’s love for his girlfriend need not be shown through clearing her shopping cart; instead, it can shine through beautiful pieces of jewellery that fill her heart with joy.
The “Three Big Things” of Modern Weddings
Young couples today no longer see weddings as simply a dinner banquet. Instead, with their adventurous mindset, they now prioritize novelty and meaningful experiences. Regardless of the scale and type of wedding, the ring exchange ritual remains an indispensable part of the wedding for any couple entering marital bliss. Just like the wedding themes that Doudou described in the talk show, couples would choose to exchange platinum wedding bands as a sign of their lifetime commitment to each other, and invited guests would witness the beautiful moment with their hearts full of blessings.
The same research reported that platinum wedding bands take up the lion’s share of the wedding ring market – more than 80% of brides-to-be end up with a platinum diamond engagement ring as their ultimate choice. Indeed, platinum’s tenacious and unchanging properties make it a natural symbol of love. Platinum is the preferred metal for wedding bands for many couples, be it in wedding bands or diamond engagement rings. On this note, Doudou joked that “the three big things of weddings” in my parents’ generation were the refrigerator, washing machine and colour television. The three big things of weddings in today’s generation are platinum diamond engagement rings, platinum wedding bands and the purchase receipt of platinum jewellery.”
Understanding the latest trends and knowing your girlfriend well are keys to discovering the perfect gift that can bring a genuine smile to her face. With the answer obviously staring right at them, selecting the ideal gift will no longer be an insurmountable challenge that leaves men scratching their heads. Precious jewellery stands out as a prime option to strengthen the foundation of one's relationship, and choosing platinum ring as a symbol of love becomes a no-brainer.
