Why do you give corporate gifts to clients, vendors, and employees? To show appreciation and strengthen that business relationship. Don't give any run of the mill gifts that will be tossed aside (or into the trash). Give your business associates a gift they'll remember and actually like. In fact, they may feel appreciated and feel inclined to work with you more (business clients), give you better deals (vendors and suppliers), and increase their job satisfaction (team members).
