Personalize gifts, but don’t get too personal by giving items such as perfume, clothing, red roses, alcohol or tobacco, says Jacqueline Whitmore, Office Depot's holiday etiquette expert. A photo album with a few group photos is just the right amount of personalization.
Before sending gifts to clients or vendors, check the corporate policy guidelines on gifts, so the gift doesn’t end up getting returned. Also, if there’s a Secret Santa exchange be sure to stick to the price limit. Don’t overspend or underspend.
