business gift

a present, usually from a supplier to a customer, often used to maintain good relations. Business gifts may range from a pen to a hamper and are often a form of merchandising. The acceptance of a business gift is often governed by an organization’s code of conduct and is often forbidden on the grounds that business gifts, particularly high value ones, may be seen as an attempt to bribe.
