>I brought you a present.
>Can I open it?

I think that means, "Can I open it now?" Sometimes, when someone gives you a gift, they don't want you to open it in front of them.

What >>100917729 said, I imagine it could be embarassing.

In Japan it's good manners to ask before opening. Actually, it's good manners to not open it in front of the person who gave it to you. It's also good manners to not accept presents 3 times. As in:
>Here, you can have this.
>I can't accept it.
>No, please, accept it.
You can accept it the third time it's offered to you, and not before. Of course, it's extremely polite, and normal friends don't use it. It's used specially when you're treating with your boss or someone superior to you in any way.

Exactly. I believe in china it is very common to bring a present when you are invited to someone elses house but it is also extremely rude to open it before the guest has left.
