Gift guides probably top my list of holiday pet peeves. Not to sound like Scrooge, but very time I flip through “for her!” recommendations, I do more cringing than craving. No, I don’t want a $350 scarf that looks like someone skinned Cookie Monster or a glossy cookbook (ick, you would, Esquire). So, for any oddballs who …
