Gift Giving Etiquette in Mexico

29 Sep

From Kwintessential is a blurb on gift giving etiquette in Mexico. Can any expats in Mexico attest to these suggestions? It’s always interesting to see what the expected customs of different countries are.

  • If invited to a Mexican’s house, bring a gift such as flowers or sweets.
  • Gift wrapping does not follow any particular protocol.
  • Do not give marigolds as they symbolize death.
  • Do not give red flowers as they have a negative connotation.
  • White flowers are a good gift as they are considered uplifting.
  • Gifts are opened immediately.
  • If you receive a gift, open it and react enthusiastically.
