Business presents

  • Adrian Furnham

Abstract

Never underestimate the importance of gift-giving in contemporary society. It plays a big part in business. Ask any professional. The economics, the language, the psychology, and the sociology of gift-giving are all the more manifest and important at the peak time of gift-giving, namely Christmas. Indeed, due to the successful commercialization of gift-giving, marketing experts are the new sociologists. Never underestimate the importance of business present-giving in certain countries, particularly Japan. One can be seriously embarrassed if one does not know when, how, and what to give. It could threaten the whole deal!
