what to give on a chinese wedding

Hell if I know.

But it seems that in lieu of gifts like appliances and punch bowls, Chinese-Filipino couples prefer red envelopes with cash as per tradition.

Is this true? I have to find out before December 1 when one of my partners, Dennis, gets married.

But if it is true, how much is appropriate to give? And isn't it just... well, tacky? Because paradoxically, while I'd prefer to receive cash instead of a gift, I hate having to give cash myself.

Incidentally, December 1st is also Nikki's and my 7th year anniversary, which triggers a 3-month season of celebration (Christmas, New Years, my birthday on Jan 2, Sage's on Feb 14 and Nikki's on Feb 19).
