I've just encountered the perfect christmas gift for a couple people in my life. And quite possibly a couple people in your life too. What is it?

is there something special about these people, a defining characteristic? are they the type that has everything? are they related? is their age relevant? their gender? is the gift a physical object?

okay, do you think a majority of people would like it? Yope. Need some qualifying/quantifying questions here to be more specific. does it cost any money at all? It didn't cost me anything. But it cost somebody something. is the title of the puzzle relevant? Very Remotely. It would take quite a leap.

scented lotion? No. And I know one person who doesn't like that stuff. ;-)
