职场送礼有讲究,如何恰当表达你的小心意?

  Keep the occasion jolly by following these nine rules of office gift-giving etiquette.

  想要节日活动充满喜悦的气氛,不妨参照以下9个职场送礼的规则吧。

  1.If you give your boss a gift, make it a group effort.

  1. 如果你想给老板送礼,请记得以团队的名义送出。

  Doing so allows everyone to participate at a lower cost per person while providing a more substantial offering than any one individual could (or should) give on their own. If you must do it alone, opt for something heartfelt (a holiday plant or baked goods) rather than expensive and overly personal.

  如此一来,每个人都只需要付出一点点,却比以个人名义出资购买的礼物来得更有分量。如果你真的要单独送礼,那就选择一些看起来更有诚意的礼物(比如节日的植物或烘焙的食品),这比贵重又过度个人化的礼物看起来更有诚意。

  2. Participation is key.

  2. 要有参与感。

  If your office has an exchange, plan on being a part of it. If you sit on the sidelines for any reason, you could be viewed as a Grinch. The cost is usually minimal, and it opens the door to build holiday goodwill.

  如果办公室里举办了一次交换礼物的活动,要记得做好计划,并参与到其中。如果你只是找理由当旁观者,别人可能会把你看作扫兴的家伙。参与这种交换礼物活动的花费一般都不多,却有助传递彼此之间的节日善意。

  3. Give discreetly to work friends.

  3. 给工作伙伴送礼要谨慎。

  If you have a small present for a few select colleagues, swap gifts outside of the office. Otherwise, you risk other people finding out and wondering why they were excluded.

  如果你有一份小礼物想要送给几位特定的合作伙伴,请记得不要在办公室里包装礼物。否则,很容易被其他同事发现,他们还会寻思自己为何没有礼物。

  4. Remember your team.

  4. 给团队留一份心意。

  The holidays provide an opportunity to say thank you to the people who support you year-round. If you supervise a small team, (say, less than five) consider a token of appreciation for each. A gift card to a favorite restaurant or retailer you know they like is a welcome treat.

  过年过节为你提供了良好机会向支持帮助你的人致谢。如果你是一个小团队的领导(比如,少于5个人的小团队),可以向每一位同事略表心意。比如他们喜欢的一家餐厅或零售商的礼品卡,将会是很受欢迎的礼物。

  5. Aim for the sweet spot on price limits.

  5. 力求击中预算的最有效点。

  No matter the spending guidelines in an organized office event, there will always be someone who exceeds them. This holiday blunder can inadvertently cause problems, making the appropriately priced offerings look meager by comparison. Conversely, don’t underspend, either. Purchase something near the top of the recommended range.

  不管公司活动的花费参考值是什么样的,总有人会超出这个额度。这种节日的小差错总会在无意之间产生问题,使得那些合理定价的礼物相形见绌。相反,也请不要花费过少。买一些价格接近参考范围最高值的礼物吧。

  6. Wrap it up.

  6. 好好包装一下。

  Embellish your package with pretty paper, gift bags and bows. The extra effort makes the person receiving the present feel special – and that’s what the season is all about.

  为你的礼物包装润色,可以使用彩纸、礼品袋子和蝴蝶结。这种额外的功夫可以让收到礼物的朋友感到很特别——这也是节日的意义所在。

  7. Don’t overdo it.

  7. 注意适度。

  Resist the temptation to go overboard. Avoid using the holidays as a time to show off, or ingratiate yourself with an over the top gift to impress. Clients can read through shallow attempts of grandeur. A modest gift showing gratitude is a far better holiday choice.

  注

  意不要过火了。不要把过年过节当作自我炫耀的机会,或者为了巴结他人,刻意购买价格高昂的礼物去打动别人。客户都懂得这种华丽的肤浅背后表达的含义。一份能够表达感激之情的礼物才能恰好符合客户的胃口。

  8. Smile and say thank you.

  8. 保持微笑并表示感谢。

  This is the correct response when a co-worker (or anyone else, for that matter) presents you with something but you don’t have anything for them. You are not obligated to buy a present in return if you had no intention of doing so. The only requirement is to offer your sincere thanks for their thoughtfulness.

  如果有同事给你赠送礼物,而你却没有任何东西回馈他人,那么保持微笑并表示感谢便是最好的反应了。如果你从没有想过为别人回礼,那么你也没有义务去购买礼物回赠。你唯一需要做的就是真诚地感谢他们的体贴。

  9. Remember extraordinary acts of kindness.

  9. 别忘了多留一点善意。

  If your mentor gives you guidance or a colleague goes out of their way to help you succeed this year, now is a great time to recognize them. An act of appreciation doesn’t have to be fancy – a pretty mug with a bag of chocolate-covered espresso beans and a gift card to a nearby coffee shop is perfect. The holidays provide extra room to acknowledge their acts of thoughtfulness.

  如果你的导师为你给予指导,或同事百忙之中抽出时间助你一臂之力,那么现在就该好好感谢他们了。表达感谢之情不必追求花哨,找一个好看的马克杯装上一小袋子覆盖着巧克力的咖啡豆, 再附上一张从咖啡店购买的礼品卡,这就是绝配了。节日就是让你感谢同事们的体贴的好机会。
