Gift perfect: Holiday corporate gift giving guide - Part 1

Most of the time, when you're selecting gifts for friends and loved ones, the goal is pretty clear: Except for considering if an item is within your gift-giving budget, all you need to ask yourself is, "Would he or she like it?" The question, "Is it appropriate?" would hardly ever enter your mind.

Office Gifts

If the gift is for your employee, your boss, or your co-worker, however, "Would he or she like it?" is only part of what you must think about. "Is it appropriate?" is extremely important.

An ill-conceived business gift can seriously damage not only your working relationships, but also, your career.

Consider your role

The good news is that you needn't wring your hands at the Secret Santa office gift exchange, this year. Our easy and sensible pointers will help you choose appropriate business gifts that will be appreciated.

Here's some solid advice, organized according to your role in the festivities:

You're the Boss

  • You set the tone - If you don't want to receive gifts, that's fine. Send an e-mail thanking everyone who might be thinking of getting you a gift. Suggest, instead, that they bring in a new, unwrapped toy to give to a group that distributes presents to hospitalized or disadvantaged children. This is a gesture that will make every member of your team feel good.
  • Everyone or no one - If you decide to give gifts to your employees, include everyone in your company or in the group that you manage. The safest bet: Buy the same gift for each employee. If your group is small and you want to buy individual presents, consider gifts related to each person's hobbies, or even presents for their kids. Such gifts show thoughtfulness and consideration.
  • Consider giving one present for the group - How about lunch at a nice restaurant--plus an invitation for everyone to go home afterwards. Gifts of time off are always appreciated, especially during the hectic holiday season.

You're an Employee:

  • Be careful - Giving gifts to your boss c...

You're a Co-worker

  • Know the office customs - If you're new to the company, check into the policy on gift giving; ask others what's generally done.
  • Decide who's participating - If an office gift swap isn't taking place, but you want to exchange gifts with several of your co-workers, do it in a restaurant. Go out for lunch. Meet after work for drinks. Just don't exchange presents in front of everyone else.

You're Buying Gifts for Any Business Associate

[Note: These rules apply to buying gifts for clients and customers, as well.]

  • Never buy anything too personal - e.g., earrings or jewelry, perfume or cologne, scented soaps or body lotions. Even if you know his or her favorite scent, or what brand of tie he wears or scarf she prefers, these types of gifts are appropriate only when given by spouses or significant others. Never buy gifts that imply intimacy. You don't want to send the wrong message to anyone.
  • Don't be insulting - The gift of pampering - e.g., a manicure or facial - is thoughtful. Three months of membership in a weight reduction program isn't.
  • Be cautious about giving alcohol - This is another gift that has the potential to cross the line, especially if you don't know the recipient's preferences, or worse, you learn later that he or she doesn't consume alcoholic beverages.
  • Safe gifts - The key to making a business gift a total winner is to include a note expressing genuine appreciation along with your holiday wishes.

Here are some simple, fail-safe gift ideas for any business associate on your holiday list:

  • Food items or gift baskets - tea, coffee, nuts, chocolate, jams, cookies
  • A decorative item for their office - business card holder, picture frame
  • A flowering holiday plant in an attractive planter - cyclamen; kalanchoe; poinsettia; Christmas cactus
  • A gift card to a local coffee or gourmet shop, gift shop, or restaurant
  • A gadget or other item related to their hobby - garden...
