What's most lucky gift?

In China we can't send the clock or  the umbrella to the others as gifts, because all  unlucky.Now more and more people give a red packet instead of a gift.Do you like to receive a red packet or a gift?

There is definitely no any connection with HongKong. Because the umbrella in Chinese sounds like seperation in Chinese, which is unlucky from our point of view or traditional pointview.

"dài lǜ mào zi " is a kind of traditional view  means one is cheated by his wife.

Are there more things that are considered "unlucky" in China? I know for a fact that it's not good to wear a green hat(cheating wife?) and that number 4(?) is an unlucky number. :)

Because the umbrella in Chinese called "san" sounds like seperation,we think it's unlucky.
