Hong Bao

I've been looking for some Hong Bao to use for cash gifts while in China. Do any of you know if one of the options shown below is a better choice than the others?

I want something that's appropriate for everyday use (i.e. not CNY specific). Otherwise, I could just pick up some regular envelopes that are red. I just don't want to offend anyone by using the wrong kind envelope!

The one of the far right is something similar to what we used. They seemed to like it.

Aunt Donna,
I didn't know about this page until just now! Pretty cool! By the way, love the picture on the top! Cute.

Our agency discouraged cash gifts so be very careful. I did tip our guide in province but I had brought a special card from the states.

Our GWCA guide HAD red envelopes available. I would suspect you can buy them readily in China and can save yourself one thing to keep track of.
