No matter the occasion, there's always a handful of people who are notoriously hard to buy for. Whenever you're scanning down your gift list and come across such a person, it's always helpful to glance through various products for ideas. This used to mean heading to the mall or flipping through a catalog — but thanks to the magic that is the modern world, you can now shop without leaving your home or turning a page. Cue the never-ending supply of genius, cheap gifts on Amazon, because when you need inspiration, virtual window shopping is a life-saver.

Amazon is my go-to for everything from toiletries to housewares, but it's also my one-stop shop for birthday presents, housewarming gifts, and weddings. Needless to say, when the holiday season rolls around, there's a new box on my stoop every day. That's because this online retailer is loaded with clever gifts that people actually want — and shipping is usually fast and painless. I can also issue returns in a snap, but thanks to the visible ratings and thorough reviews, I know exactly what I'm getting ahead of time (so I very rarely need to).

If you're looking for gifts that fit any occasion and any recipient, these ones are flying off the shelves for good reasons: They're smart, affordable, and highly-rated.
