Corporate Gift Etiquette
November 6, 2017
As you celebrate the holiday season, keep in mind how a well-chosen gift can bring cheer to a person's day. In many situations, there is an etiquette for corporate holiday gift giving. We've provided a brief guide with suggestions about what to do and what not to do when participating in holiday gift giving exchanges in the workplace.
Gift Giving: What to Do
Practical gifts are a great way to celebrate the holidays, while thanking your co-workers and others in the office. For example, a pen and pencil set adds flair to a colleague's desk, while a stylish portfolio helps create a professional look and makes it easy to carry notes and writing instruments. Personal gifts also help ignite the holiday spirit. For example, coffee and tea lovers would probably appreciate a variety pack of their favorite beverages or a sturdy travel mug to sip a drink while on the go. Choose desk accessories with stylish designs that reflect a team member's hobby, or treat a music lover to the gift of great sound with a pair of headphones.
Gift Giving: What Not To Do
Gift giving should make the season brighter, so it's important to avoid items that are too personal or could offend the recipient. It;s probably best to stay away from gifts related to politics, finances and religion. In addition, while perfume or cologne may seem thoughtful, this type of gift could irritate or cause allergies. As an general rule, don't give something that you wouldn't feel comfortable receiving or that might not be appropriate for the office.
