According to a recent study conducted by the Advertising Specialty Institute on annual corporate gift giving, companies expressed that they had budgeted to spend about $43, per current or prospective customer, on products such as branded food gifts, wine bottles and desk accessories.
Besides giving gifts to customers, companies also plan on spending roughly $50 per employee, including gift cards, food/beverages, to apparel and cash bonuses.
In total, 6 in 10 companies plan on rewarding clients and employees this year.
“Everyone appreciates being remembered and recognized, which is why smart companies choose to recognize faithful customers during the holidays with a special gift that says, ‘Thank you for your business’,” says ASI CEO Timothy M. Andrews.
