About presentations and gifts
Bribe is considered a costly gift, handed over before or after the service of a particular person using the official position. Gifts are the very thing we are looking for on the eve of the New Year, birthday, etc.
And the price of a gift depends on our well-being, fantasy and, of course, the personality of the presenter. Statistics show: 15% of men believe that the gift itself does not matter, the main thing – attention, and 23% prefer the gifts are practical. However, it is not easy to satisfy others.
Remember that gifts are unpacked in the presence of others. Take care that your good intentions are not misconstrued.
For a married colleague there is nothing personal: suspenders, laces with ambiguous inscriptions, etc. Business relations allow to give various stationery (pens, notebooks, calendars, pocket calculators), books, video cassettes and disks, frames for photos and other faceless little things. Lack of imagination will redeem the humor: at the time of the service, joke on the topic “How difficult it is to make gifts to men” or “what is still missing in life”. Presentations should not be expensive, regardless of your financial capabilities.
Present co-worker – a flower, favorite delicacy, a small souvenir, a good book, stationery. Gift to the boss – the original photo, accessories for the office, stationery for a business man. Such a gift should be at the same time neutral and demonstrate respect. Its cost can be any depending on your income. But you do not need to give up the last money to present the chef a chic gift. He knows your financial capabilities perfectly, and excessive generosity can lead to the opposite.
You should not give away personal belongings, perfumes, linen. These gifts with working relationships are inappropriate.
To make a present-joke, it is necessary to know well the character and habits of the given person, otherwise you risk to get stuck. An option is possible: a gift is given, and an oral application to a gift is announced in a joking genre. You need to joke softly and kindly. Indeed, even the best friend can offend an inappropriate joke. And with colleagues it is necessary to be attentive doubly: it concerns cartoons, twin puppets, chastooshek, etc. Therefore, before choosing a gift, decide which of your relations with this person are.
The gift often has a symbolic meaning – it’s a peculiar form of expressing feelings. With the minimum value made with meaning, it can have a tremendous value for the person who presented it.
Proceeding from the fact that the gift is valuable, as a sign of attention, it necessarily removes the label with the price. All gifts, except for flowers, are presented in the package. Serving him, modestly listen to the words of gratitude without entering into the discussion. If the gift is handed personally, it is immediately unpacked in the presence of the presenter, express satisfaction and thank you. It’s impolite to put the gift away without looking at it.
Do not show displeasure for the ineptly chosen gift. In special cases (in close relationships), having felt that the gift was not very successful, one can propose to exchange it (check in case of need to be saved). You can give up a gift when it forces you to feel like a debtor. When refusing to emphasize the appreciation for attention and motivate their failure.
Give, surprise and rejoice the people who are nearby. Perhaps it is your present that will give the colleague the missing energy that will highlight this day not only in work, but also in life. Give it!
