Homer Gift.  A Homer gift is a gift intended for the person who gives the gift rather than for the recipient of the gift.  The origin of this term is based on a Simpsons show where Homer gives Marge a bowling ball with the name HOMER engraved on the ball.

So - if I give my husband a cute vanilla scented candle for our living room, this is a Homer gift.  Or - if my husband gives me a Clint Eastwood movie, again, this is a Homer gift.
