I would think it would be fine to just give one gift at either event.  Hopefully some other bees can weigh in…

I think one gift would be fine.  You don’t have to give a gift right at the wedding, so it’s not like you need to feel funny walking in empty-handed.

One gift is totally fine! I’m having an American wedding and a Chinese banquet and have invited people to both, I do not expect them to give me two gifts!

Gift is good; usually with Asian weddings cash is great… although some people can call it tacky….

If you are giving a cash gift what about separating the money you intend to give in half? Give the first half at the first wedding celebration and the second half at the later celebration? That way you won’t show up empty handed to either and you won’t have to spend extra on a separate gift. 

But if you just gave the gift (cash or item) at one reception, I think they’d be fine with that too. 🙂
