Alex is a hopeless romantic who was supposed to be born in Italy (her dream destination), but proud to be South African nonetheless. She lives by her heart, and, consequentially, leaves a little bit of herself in everything she writes. She wholeheartedly believes that mermaids (and fairies) exist and is deadly afraid of the age '30'.

International Gift Giving Tips

Gifting is an age-old practice that dates back generations. On all corners of the globe, offering another a gift was considered honorable and truce-like. As the world split into opposing regions, then gelled back together again, thanks to technological efforts and the resultant co-dependency, region-specific norms emerged. These governed how different groups interacted, and this would affect acts as simple but noble as offering gifts. Hence, international gift giving tips to help you navigate this space.

This article shines a light on not-so-well-known rules to follow when curating personal or corporate gifts. We consider cultural and interpersonal differences and the effects gift-giving may have on relationships. There are a handful of factors to consider before your corporation, micro or macro, decides to launch gifting campaigns. Keep scrolling for some essential international gifting ‘pearls of wisdom’.
