I would say so, but that really doesn't matter. Just do what works for you, things out there that actually fit the theme are mearly a drop in the ocean.

NO!

While I love bacon and Spam, I tried that dysynergy of two beloved meats and it is a foul abomination that should never be consumed, let alone "gifted" to any but ones worst enemies. I really should've known that if Spam-and-bacon-in-a-can were being offloaded to Big Lots that there was something terribly wrong. Fortunately, I didn't go and buy a case of it thinking that I'd acquired a great asset. I wonder if its disappearance from the shelves was the result of some poor sap thinking that he had cashed in on good eats, or just Big Lots facing the facts and deep-sixing the whole load.

I literally couldn't even get through a whole can, and had to eventually toss it, shaking my head in utter dismay.

I would give spam flavored macadamias to everyone, however, I didn't hit the lottery this year. Yummy, and oddly, vegan.

you all worry so much about gifting, and bringing some trinket, and enough of them, and who will like them.

I've seen the answer, written in prose:

" You can't go wrong with a wreach awround"

alls ya need is an (optional) latex glove and a good hydration
