Can small "favors" (e.g., pens, notepads) be purchased and given away under federal and State grants?

These items should not be charged to grants because they are not necessary and reasonable for the proper administration of the grant. In addition, the State Comptroller has determined that "favors" represent gifts of public funds which are unallowable under the State Constitution.
