Popular traditional gifts on White Day include white chocolate, cookies, jewelry, white lingerie, and marshmallows. These days anything goes, so the gifts can be pretty much anything.
There is a word in Japanese "sanbai gaeshi" (三倍返し), which means triple the return. The rule is a returned gift should be 2 to 3 times the cost of the Valentine’s Day gift. Wow! The boys have it tough on White Day in Japan.
