The following is one example of a gift policy credit union can consider using. “Individual employees are prohibited from accepting gifts from current or perspective supplies and vendors valued at over $XX. All gifts must be reported to the CEO. Small items including trade show giveaways such as key chains, notepads, etc., may be retained by the employee for personal use. It is recognized that some vendors such as caterers or printers might provide “samples” of their goods to give staff a better idea of their products. This practice is considered acceptable. Gifts of food items, such as Christmas gift baskets, are considered to be gifts to the entire staff and not just to one person.” Courtesy Association Xpertise Inc.
