Here now, Kogi BBQ/Sunny Spot/Chego/A-Frame chef Roy Choi:

I'd give a box of Korean pears, persimmons, or pomegranates in the Fall. Apples or Cheju-do tangerines in the winter. Strawberries in the Spring. Melons in the Summer.

As American as I am, my gift giving habits are deeply rooted in Korean culture. It's how we do. Never go somewhere empty-handed.

I'd probably grab a cheap ass knife from the market shelf, a strainer that looks like a strawberry, and a flower apron so they can wash their fruit.
