Business Gift Giving Etiquette.

In general gifts are given in business to promote goodwill and foster good relationships. They are also given to show appreciation. How do you know what is a proper gift?

First off, if you are dealing in international trade you should make yourself knowledgeable about the customs of those you would like to gift. For example if you are dealing with oil barons or emirates from the Middle East you wouldn’t want to give them a gift of wood no matter how intricate.

The reason is that they perceive would to be of very low value, not making any brownie points there.Another big consideration is to give a gift that you know the recipient will appreciate. Do a little research; find out what their interests and hobbies are.

They will be very impressed that you took the time to discover what they like and will feel comfortable in knowing that this wasn’t just some anonymous purchase.

Gag gifts are almost always inappropriate, especially if there is a sexual connotation. Lingerie should never be given as a business gift. This is an intimate gift reserved for those in a close personal relationship.

Other gifts to be careful of giving are food and alcohol which are very popular during the holidays. Prime examples would be giving a gift of lobster or a gift basket with pork sausage to a Jewish business associate, not kosher.

Another faux pas would be giving wine to someone who is either alcoholic or doesn’t drink at all. You get the idea, it can be a little daunting, however with a little bit of thought and structure, giving a corporate gift is often the opportunity to build on your business relationships.

So what’s safe to give someone as a business gift?

Again, just keep in mind what the perceived value is in the culture of the person you are gifting. Think practically what your associate would like to receive. Provided you have the right type of relationship, don't be scared to  ask your associate if there is anything that they particularly need or want.
