Misguided Gifts

What with some department stores already insisting that the holiday season is here, I'm curious: what were the oddest, worst, most ill-suited presents that revealed to you how little the giver knew about your interests/tastes/life/etc.?

I'm not talking about books that turned out to be bad, I'm thinking about how with one look at the cover, the back of the book, what-have-you, it was a certainty that you would not enjoy this book.
