GIFT GIVING IN AUSTRALIA*
- Gift Giving Etiquette
BUSINESS & PERSONAL GIFT GIVING
Generally, gift-giving is not part of Australian business culture.
if you are invited to a home for dinner, it's permissible to bring a token
gift of flowers, chocolates, a craft from your home region, or wine.
illustrated book from your home region can be another welcome gift.
preserved food product unique to your home region can also be a good
choice; preserves must be canned or bottled, however, or they will be
confiscated by Australian customs.
in mind that your thoughtful choice is considered more important than the
actual cost of the gift.
