  • I'd love it. Who couldn't use this? It's very practical and one which I am sure will not be returned!

  • For who? A teacher? yes...Your husband? no. It depends on who you are giving to.

  • Depends on who you are buying it for and how much you have to spend on gifts. It would be just fine for your child's teacher or Girl Scout leader, your co-worker, or similar people. If you don't have a lot of money to spend on gifts, I think it would be a good gift to give to a friend or anyone else who is not immediate family too. With all the people in our family who are unemployed this year, I'm pretty sure there are going to be lots of practical gifts like these given out.

  • It's sort of an "I put no effort into this at all" kind of gift but other than that I guess it's fine.

  • Depends on the receiver.  Takes thought in knowing a person what they would enjoy as a gift.

  • I agree with Kimposible , it is a generic gift idea. Personally, I despise receiving this as a gift.. I think it is a gift that you give because you have to give a gift.

  • I disagree with the idea that this has to be a generic gift. If my friend went to the trouble to get my favorite scent, for instance, I would consider that VERY thoughtful, and I'd love it!
