We consider this a somewhat passive-aggressive gift. A Pottery Barn Monogrammed Soap Set ($29) is pretty, but almost too pretty, you know? It's the kind of thing you give someone you're not sure how you feel about. See, it works like this: They walk into the bathroom, want to wash their hands, but suffer with indecision as to whether they should use the "good" stuff. Of course, it is possible that we just think too much.
