42 Random But Brilliant Products On Amazon That Even Difficult People Will Love

Ad failed to load

When you hear “notoriously difficult to buy presents for,” I bet there’s that one person who pops into your head. I'm sure they don't mean to be; maybe they just have everything already, or maybe their standards are a tad high. Either way, you can find gifts for people who are hard to buy for. You just need to know where to look.

When buying for picky people, I find that Amazon is the best place to start your search. For one, there's a general sense of quality control, because if something sucks, the reviewers will let you know. For another, they sell over 200 million products in America. You're bound to find at least one (or, you know, the 42 in this list) that meet your even the fussiest friend's standards. And let's not forget about the reliable shipping and the fact that you don't have to leave your house — both of which make holiday shopping a hell of a lot more enjoyable. (At least for this introvert, they do.)

Now it all comes down to finding a great product with a personalized twist. A good mix of quality and practicality usually does the trick for anyone hard to buy for. Here's a ton of cool gifts for difficult people, because nobody's got the time to wander endlessly around the mall this holiday season.
