If there's a present I know a loved one absolutely has to have, I'll find a way to make sure they get it. But that’s pretty rare — most of the time, it's not easy to figure out what to get someone. People are picky! In fact, finding gifts for people who are hard to buy for can feel like torture — or used to, until I realized how to change my approach.

In my experience, there are two things you can do if you're stuck and literally have no clue what to get someone. One option is to go completely random with it and gift someone one of the insanely brilliant but bizarre products you can find on Amazon. Another is to visualize a need or a problem that person has and search for a product that helps with that. For example, if you're trying to find a present for someone with night sweats, a cooling pillow could be an awesome and completely unexpected way to help make that problem go away. Best of all, it could be something they'd have never thought of on their own.

Contrary to what you might think, giving a thoughtful present doesn't mean you have to break the bank. All it takes is a little imagination and maybe a dash of weirdness. Here are 50 hidden gems on Amazon that are sure to make even the toughest person on your gift list crack a smile.
