Declining a Workplace Gift – With Both Grace and 8 Good Reasons; with Two Suggested Alternatives, As Well

Declining workplace gifts is a wise practice. That said, it can be harder to decline a gift then to accept one. Doing so with grace, offering a good reason for doing so, and perhaps suggesting an alternative “gift” that will likely pose no risk, is not the easiest thing to do. This Model Memo offers you a path forward, with (a) eight good non-offending sample reasons and (b) two suggested alternatives. Like all of our Model Memos and Letters, it shows you “What to Say, and How to Say It.”™
