‘Tis the season to get your holiday gifts together. Shopping for family and friends is hard enough, so when it comes to giving business gifts, questions often arise.
5 Tips on Business Gift Giving Etiquette
- Personal Gifts Are A YES
Show your clients that you really care by getting them something you know they will appreciate. Figure out what they’re into, instead of buying something generic. This is sure to impress people!
- What’s Your Budget?
Make sure you know what your gift-giving budget is before shopping. If you can’t afford to give everyone a nice gift, don’t sweat it. Even a nice holiday card will show your clients that you are thinking of them. Don’t overspend! Certain service providers, such as postal workers, are not allowed to accept gifts over a certain price range. Make sure you do your research and consider your audience.
- Re-Gift At Your Own Risk
Re-gifting is a great way to save money if it’s done right. If the item has already been opened or obviously did not come right from the store rack, it’s not worth it. You don’t want to hurt any feelings.
- Be Sensitive to Cultures and Religions
Remember, not everyone celebrates Christmas. There are other religious holidays in winter as well. This is definitely something to consider when shopping.
- Include Everybody! (If You Can)
If you can’t afford to get a gift for each of your contacts at a client’s company, or even all of your team members, you might want to rethink it. Being too selective could lead to hurt feelings.
