Gift-giving is fun, its satisfying, but its not always a breeze. Especially if you have a large list filled with people who are notoriously difficult, demanding, have expensive taste, or who just dont give much of an indication about what they might want, you may be searching for ideas for unique gifts. We have curated a list that can help with all those hard-to-buy-for types, and most of them are super affordable, too.

After all, finding inexpensive gifts... that dont look like inexpensive gifts... is one of the biggest challenges of the holiday season. "While you might want to gift everyone fromnbsp;your momnbsp;tonbsp;your sisternbsp;tonbsp;your bestienbsp;a 60 Diptique candle, odds are its just not realistic for your budget," said MyDomaine. "But believe it or not, it is possible to find gifts for under 10 for everyone on your list without looking like youre skimping."

For the Fashionista

Bring some legendary Italian design into your giftees home with these gorgeous Giacomo Towels By Missoni Home, from Amusespot. They come in three color combinations featuring the >

For the cosmetics queen

Forget the mood ring. This is mood nail polish At just 6 at Urban Outfitters, its a great little stocking stuffer, or buy one in each of the available colors for your babysitter or teenage daughter.

For the health-obsessed

Buy a pillow for a friend or family member? Sure, when its this one. "Covered in mineral-infused fibers that absorb your bodys energy and then recycle it back into your body, promoting faster workout recovery and better sleep, sounds too good to be true, but clinical tests proved it really works," said Architectural Digest. The Body Chemistry Comfy Hybrid pillow is 80 from PureCare.nbsp;

For the obsessive-compulsive cleaner

The iRobot Bravaa Jet is a robotic cleaning machine for hard surfaces. Hello, bathroom floor Its on the pricier side at 200, but theyll never have to get down on their hands and knees to scrub that tile again, and youll be a hero. Win-win.

For the foodie

This Himalayan Salt amp; Grater by Rivsalt will be a hit far beyond its 24 price tag.

For the political junkie in your life

"We all have those loved ones who, no matter where they sit on the political spectrum, arenbsp;hardcorenbsp;when it comes to politics," said Refinery29. "They talk about it over dinner, post about it on social media, and will drive you crazy when theyre praising their faves or condemning people in power whom they dont like."

So what do you buy for someone whos so passionate about politics? They curated a great list of options with books, t-shirts, mugs, and, perhaps our favorite because it suits anyone regardless of political affiliation: this collectible edition of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Even better: Its just 7.98 atnbsp;Barnes amp; Noble.

For the kid you dont know very well

We all have a child on our list that we have to buy something for and are flummoxed because we dont spend enough time together to really be able to get personal. This adorable 25 balloon dog nightlight from Uncommon Goods will delight any child and, quite family we want one, too.

For the techie

Buying gifts for the tech-lover in your life can be challenging, especially if you are on a budget. The new Roku Streaming Stick might be your answer. "We already loved this little 50 video streamer, which turns any HDMI-equipped TV into a gateway to online entertainment bliss: Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, YouTube, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, HBO Now and literally hundreds of other streaming channels," said cnet. "And now it gets better for 2017, with a new voice-activated remote that can also control your TVs power and volume."

For your teen or tween

The idea of picking out gifts for your teen or tween can send you running right to the gift card aisle. But before you load up on cards, take a look at these great gift ideas from Good Housekeeping.

This 30 Splash-Proof Mini Portable Bluetooth Speaker provides "up to fivenbsp;hours of non-stop music from any device," and encourages showering, which is another plus. We also love this 3-Port USB Car Charger that allows your kids and all their friends to charge up their phones at the same time. Its just 15 from Shop On Market.
