In Sikh/Punjabi culture, when dear relatives and friends visit... we never send them away empty handed

Good idea. The other things that one gets gifted is women's suits that you're never going to have sewn or a man's shirt that's probably the wrong size and colour. Although I do think this is stopping nowadays. Cakes seem to be the new thing now.

Good food & courteous behaviour is sufficient no need for gifts.

I can understand why you can't cook, but it isn't some elite skill that you can't learn yourself. Punjabis have always been giving gifts to each other since pre-Sikh era, they aren't going to stop just because some guy on the internet is saying stupid stuff about Kaurs.
