A wise man once said, ‘the manner of giving is worth more than the gift’. Gift giving can be a bit of a minefield if you don’t know what you’re doing. The appropriateness of a gift is of more value than it’s worth. Keeping in mind the particular interests of the person you are giving a gift to is of significance. If for example, one is shopping for Chinese Businessmen, the fact to be kept in mind is that Chinese people are known for their practicality. They prefer gifts that are useful and handy, depicting their western accessories.
One of the most appropriate gifts for Chinese executives and businessmen would be Parker pens as they are very famous in China, or leather wallets. These everyday-gifts will be a reminder of you whenever they are being utilized.
Whenever some business personnel find the time, they spend it enjoying NBA and Baseball games that are shown in China. Hence, gifts related to local teams perhaps their T-shirts, mugs or caps would also be appropriate. Baseball caps are great gifts. If the T-shirts have unique design or have very foreign patterns, they will be appreciated by the businessmen.
Giving wine has also been a prevailing tradition in almost every country. Adults in China always love to show-off their liquor collection. Great Wall dry whine, medium-dry wine, medium-sweet wine, dry red wine, and Rose wine are wines that are popular in China and, therefore, appropriate gifts for Chinese business men.
Calligraphy is one of the highest forms of Chinese art. Chinese calligraphy art works are also great gifts. These artworks can be in the form of paintings to be used for the decoration of offices.
Electronic gadgets like watches, digital planners, and digital cameras also make very suitable gifts for business men. These gifts will assist them in their day to day chores, and such gifts will be highly appreciated.
