Does anyone use a honey dipper?

I got Donna some honey for xmas, so I figured I could get her a dipper too.
But the more I think about it, the more awkward they seem. Does anyone use one? What are the pros/cons compared to using a teaspoon?
Honestly no, I don't use one, but that does not mean they are not good. I just don't get a chance to use it. I guess in theory their advantage is that they can dip the honey out in a more consistant rate, whereas if you use a spoon, the honey is poured out all at once. If your goal is to add a teaspoon or a tablespoon of honey to your tea, then a spoon is better. If your goal is to dip honey evenly on a pastry, then a dipper is better. That is my thought.
They are super cute but i can't measure the amount with the honey dipper so nope, i own one but never used it. Another useless stuff in my kitchen.
i have yet to encounter a situation where a dipper would be more useful than a spoon. perhaps as a gag wedding gift. like the guest who purchases a melon baller and nothing else.
I think the old-time dippers made sense when people stored honey in honey pots (like Pooh Bear) and wide-mouth jars. Squeeze bottles make those old dippers obsolete.
