South Africa: Gift Giving


A small gift for your business associate or their families will be greatly appreciated after you have developed a good business relationship with them. Personalised gifts like desk accessories or a high quality pen are a good idea for a gift.
You should always arrive at a dinner party with a gift. Flowers, chocolates or a bottle of wine will be appreciated. Larger organisations will offer to send a driver to your hotel to pick you up or take you back afterwards. If possible, sit in the back seat. You are not required to tip the driver, but a small gift such as a company pen will be appreciated.
