OK, so I will be meeting with an asian business man tomorrow who will potentially be buying a property from me. We have met on several occasions before, so we have established some rapport. However, I'm not 100% sure if he is buying so I don't want to go overboard. I think he is from Taiwan, but not completely sure. Should I get him a gift? If so, what and how much should I spend? Any other tips?

50$.

It's chinese new year, just wish him a happy chinese new year.

A gift would be patronising. And definitely don't do any weird bowing or kung fu handshakes like ive seen some americans do. It's cringy as fuck
>>
Taiwanese are huge on gifts, even small, I woudnt stress it either way,

Found this on the internet, so it must be true.
>>
Get him some nice fruit (make sure its the best of the best, taiwanese fruit standards are really high) or really nice biscuits in a gift box
>>
>>1084098

Depends on whether he is coming in from another country. Don't give him something he won't be able to take across the border.
>>
Would wine be appropriate? If so, is there a certain kind and price I should look at?
>>
>>1084102
Some really good spirits. Wine is a bit of a minefield and the guy will probably never drink it. Something like scotch or bourbon or cognac. Make sure its in a box.
>>
>>1084102
there's a narrow window of gifts that would be appropriate and they're unlikely to yield much. too much risk, not enough return. wish him a happy new year and get to business.
>>
>>1084102

It would depend. You don't want to go too expensive because then he would feel obligated to give you a gift of matching value in return.

It's a tough question because much of it will have to do with how old he is, whether he is traditional or modern, whether he is religious or not, and a bunch of other factors.

If you know for sure he's a a drinker, I would go with a fifth of a very good whisky (not cheap shit but something made in your country, something he couldn't get in his own country, and something that is quality)
>>
>>1084113

So if I know very little about him other than that he is asian, about 60 years old, and wants to buy my factory? What would be a good, safe bet?
>>
>>1084121
I give this a high probability of being patronizing, insulting, or making you appear desperate. don't buy him shit dude, he's not your father in law.

>this is how you lose face in asian culture
>>
>>1084125

What if I just pick up doughnuts and coffee? Would that be cool?
>>
>>1084133
He probably doesn't like either of those things
>>
>>1084134

Why wouldn't he like either of those?
>>
>>1084140
Why are you so determined to appear desperate and servile?
>>
>>1084150

I just know that it is chinese new year and that they are a gift giving society. I know that some of them are very rigid about these things but others are not. Don't want to fuck up the whole thing from the start by getting it wrong.
>>
>>1084140
Hes taiwanese and 60 years old. Trust me he doesnt want a fucking donut and he doesn't drink coffee.
