It's a natural question. Riot is actively pushing us to advertise for them, but charging us money to do it. It only makes sense to wonder if there's any upside for oneself. In addition, it's not a very good deal (not even for the receiver) so again we come to the question of whether there's any personal gain to balance it out.
When I give someone a gift, I've tailored it to what that person wants. This pack makes no allowance for personal preference other than throwing a handful of champs at you and hoping one sticks. As others have pointed out, most of these champions are on free rotation quite often, and the XP boost actively hurts a newer player. This is a pretty poor "gift" and I'd do a lot better to just sit down and spend some time playing with my friend on a smurf account, teaching them the basics, and maybe just get them some RP with that 5$, that they can spend on what they want.
