Ah, Microsoft.

If you’ve ever used their products, you sometimes wonder if they understand how humans actually want to interact with machines. Now, I’m beginning to wonder if they understand human beings, period.

Behold, the Office Online Gift Guide 2007, a handy list of suggested Microsoft Office-related gifts that you can buy for your loved ones this holiday season.

Don’t think a tie is impersonal and boring enough? Then why not gift someone with “Professional backgrounds for PowerPoint for only $199?”

Tired of hand-writing all those personalized holiday cards? Why not “snazz it up” a bit by adding that warm, homey Microsoft touch? Follow the link that says, “Send unlimited personal greetings, $12″ and you can purchase an add-on for Outlook that will allow you to turn your Xmas list into a spam list, emailing a large group of people without them knowing you’re sending the exact same letter to everyone you know.

Or try these gems:

  • Make flowcharts a breeze, $19.95.
  • Create and convert PDF forms in Word, $14.50
  • 6 must-have tools Excel pros use, $49
