What is the differences in giving gifts between Chinese and American?

As Chinese heritage we were taught accepting gift must not taken place. So the difference between American and Chinese when it comes to giving or accepting gift are different. Chinese tradition do not believe on giving even receiving. There are very strict on this value, I guess it has something to do with pride and with American tradition, we all love to give as well, but receiving is more flattering.
