Brilliant or Baffling? Book Safe

I was mildly amused when I first saw this Book Safe ($15) and thought it seemed just a step above hiding money under your mattress. Then when I clicked on the item to see its full description, I saw that it's currently on backorder! I guess a lot of people thought it was a good stocking stuffer?

I definitely encourage keeping a locked box with passports, important papers and a small amount of cash for emergencies, but am not convinced that this book safe is really necessary. What do you think?
