How to choose a suitable gift for a British or American business partner
Geschenke sind in vielen Kulturen selbstverständliche Zeichen der Höflichkeit. Oder?
Is your boss doing business with the UK or the US for the first time and is he or she wondering what – if any – gift to take?
Business people in the US and UK do not expect to receive gifts, especially not at the beginning of a business negotiation. If at all, a small gift can be given once a deal has gone through. If you are invited to someone’s private home, it is suitable to take along a bottle of wine or some flowers very much the same as you would in Germany.
