Are gift vouchers taxable?

My employer gives all employees gift vouchers to a value of £30 each at Christmas. This year they have been taxed through the payroll, but I thought that the Inland Revenue allowed employee gifts of about £75 per employee before tax is payable. Am I Wrong? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.
