My In-Laws used to give people Self Help books. How insulting is this? They actually thought they were being helpful.
I remember the first X-Mas I spent with them. Everybody else got 3 or 4 nice, big presents. Jodaar got a pair of argyll socks. Jodaar rarely wears dress socks, couple times a year maybe. Jodaar wore those socks every time he did yard work. Stupid things blew out in about three weeks.
