Learn the Business Etiquette Lesson How to Give a Hostess Gift in Professional Social Settings

By April Braswell

In the Facebook Era where every social event is being announced online with only internet based invitations from Evite.com and birthday gifts are digital gift cards, we might be seeing a decline in the social etiquette familiarity of The Art of Giving Hostess Gifts.  If you're a professional in the business world, you may not yet already be well-schooled in the business etiquette lesson of knowing how to give a gracious Hostess Present.  Not knowing what to do, how to give it, and what to give, as well as what NOT to give can hurt your career.  Who needs that in this demanding workforce economy?  Get the edge, professionally.  Read on to discover how to give a thoughtful gift to your host or hostess.

Guest Giving a Hostess Gift

 

One of the most important Social Graces, not just the Etiquette of Rules and Protocol which can sometimes connote a restrictive feel to it, is the simple gracious gesture of giving your host or hostess a present. Giving a gift card is not enough.  Why, you might be wondering?  Because it lacks the personal touch.  Despite the gift giving advice of Offers.com's Vice President Howard Schaffer, the personal touch is required as a gracious guest giving your hosts a welcoming gift. To do less than that, in some cultures, is to insult your host.

The very idea behind giving a Hostess Gift is to acknowledge in the most gracious manner possible your appreciation for her thoughtfulness in inviting you to her social event.

Modern social conventions of Potluck Parties where it can almost appear that your hostess didn't really have to go any effort to host the party often garner the 20 Somethings crowd bringing just Chips and Salsa.

Alternatively, the dinner guest who brings a bottle of wine as a gift expecting his host to crack open the bottle of wine misses the whole point of the Hostess Present

A Hostess Present is intended to be a gift.

Theoretically, that means, the bottle of wine is hers to keep to enjoy herself at a later occasion than this evening.

While the giving of gift cards and digitally stored and shared presents can indeed be quite convenient, virtual gifts lack the feeling of substance as well as the personal touch.

We might in many ways greatly appreciate the Amazon Gift card with its accompanying ease of use and breadth of product selection to enjoy. 

However, we did not experience interpersonal connection fostering of the physical exchange when handing someone a gift box.  They physical substance of the gift wrapped box is lost. 

We lose out on the halo affect of some handing up a personal gift.  We don't feel we received at the same level as when a friend, a guest, colleague or family member hands up a gift.

Gift giving really is a beautiful and thoughtful exchange of energy.  When you put some thought into the hostess present you bring with you to give to your party hosts that evening or for that special weekend getaway in the country, you host then convers all of those warm and happy thoughts and feelings associated with the item you gave now with you.

April and I worked on an online dating profile for me. The price was amazing for the amount of real effort she put into her work. She way over delivered. She wrote the profile and also included an hours free coaching. April did not ask just enough questions to write a profile, she asked so many questions she got to know me and I mean really know me and what made me tick. She then wrote a profile I was so happy with. I recommend April and her work. - Mike J, AU 

 

 

April is a brilliant giver. She shares her time, information and exhubrance. Her articles are cheeky and great fun to read, even if you are not a boomer. If you are a baby boomer, she's just the resource you need to get back on your feet when it comes to romance. Whether you have lost a spouse to death or divorce, she can help you heal that wound.

April Braswell, Relationship Coach Par Excellence! I had been stuck in a relationship that was going nowhere with a man who did not love me and who did not make me happy.... April gave me the confidence to HOPE that there was someone out there who would love me and accept me for who I was. She held my hand thoughout the whole the experience, or I would never gone online....I was too skittish about the whole deal. In fact, I told her, "April, I have already met all the single men in the Metro area in my age agroup. There's no one out there for me that I am interested in!  But April's warmth, encouragement, and compassion challenged me to venture online. I did and enjoyed a number of good results. I had some good dates. This was good. But still...I had not met THE one. Then she encouraged me to try another service...and within several weeks...I was dating new men.  It was GREAT.   What a difference.  THANK YOU......I love you!!! Sonya L.
