Gift Giving in Vietnam
- If invited to Vietnamese home, small gifts for the hostess, children or elders of the home are a sign of respect. Usable items, such as soaps, cosmetics or picture frames or flowers, fruits are appreciated, and should be wrapped in colorful paper.
- Do not give handkerchiefs, anything black, yellow flowers or chrysanthemums.
- Business gift giving is fairly common at the end of a meeting or during a meal in honor of your business associates. Gifts should be small but not expensive. Something with your company logo or something typical from your country both makes excellent gifts
