Poor Cookware Gift [moved from Cookware board]

Have you given a cookware gift in an improper situation or regret doing so?

I know there is always an issue of giving a knife (especially for a wedding) because it can be perceived as an ill omen. I have given a bread machine as a wedding gift and was later told it is not a great choice. In my defense, I have a tendency to buy people gifts which "I" want to have. I bought an 1-year old toy which I want to play and I bought that bread machine because I wanted one.

Have you ever regret giving a kitchenware to another person? Maybe it violates a tradition or maybe it is a poorly made product.
