Albina Kholgova, president of the National Association of Professionals in Business Ethics, Etiquette and Protocol, says New Year’s gifts should not cost too much. Saying that expensive gifts for this holiday are in bad taste, she emphasized that the average cost of gifts should not exceed 800 rubles.
“According to the rules of etiquette, expensive gifts should not be given. The gift should be purely symbolic, around 700-800 rubles, – registered Kholgova speaks to the 360 TV channel. “Even spending three thousand rubles is a bad gift for the New Year, because it is already considered expensive.”
The expert stated that since one of the purposes of preparing a gift is to surprise, asking the person what to give is considered a wrong step. In his opinion, with a small budget it is worth choosing something symbolic.
Social psychologist Alexey Roshchin agreed with him that it is better not to ask for the desired gift. He emphasized that most of the time people like surprises.
“You shouldn’t choose based on the price tag: something pleasant and unexpected will make one happy anyway,” he added.
