New corporate gift-giving survey says clients are getting food and drink in their stockings

A new survey from Successful Promotions magazine says gift cards trump cash for year-end employee gifts and bonuses, and that food and drink win out for clients and customers.

Highlights of the 2010 Corporate Gift Spending survey include:

  • Stable spending. Nearly six out of 10 respondents plan to spend about the same on corporate gifts for both employees and prospects or clients. Nearly one-third (31%) plan to spend less, and only 12% plan to spend more, suggesting an overall net decrease.
  • Chow down. Food gifts or beverages are the most commonly cited client or prospect gift (33%), followed by calendars (25%), gift cards (25%), writing instruments (25%) and desk accessories (24%).
  • Cards and cash. Gift cards are the most commonly cited gift for employees (40%), followed by cash bonuses (32%), apparel (24%), food or beverages (24%) andimprinted calendars (18%).
  • Love the logo. Over one-half (54%) plan on decorating the gifts with their logo
