Web Site Offers Foreign Gift-Giving Advice

Exchanging gifts, especially with executives in foreign countries, is a way to cement relationships and demonstrate commitment. But giving a culturally-objectionable business gift can just as easily destroy a relationship. To avoid such a complication visit http://www.getcustoms.com, a site that offers culturally appropriate business gifts including notes explaining why the particular gifts are recommended. Created by Malvern, Pa.-based Getting Through Customs, the site caters to Asian, European, and Latin American sensitivities, and offers gifts including business organizers, clocks, and radios. Other stops at the site contain a database of global business practices, cultural overviews for international travelers, and cultural IQ quizzes.
