I totally disagree. Please keep your paper certificates. They are meaningless to most recipients, including me and many I work with. I haven’t kept a one I’ve received – even those “framed” (gotta love those cardboard frames). At FSA, most times the supervisors spring for a pizza lunch for the division, which usually goes over quite well, or sandwiches from a local shop (Potbelly’s in the DC area is most often used). Would rather have a free lunch than any other “momento” and definitely more than a stupid (IMO) paper certificate anyone can print off a computer.
