Hey, it's OK to be lazy sometimes, especially when it comes to gift-giving. Picking out the perfect presents for everyone on your list at a manageable price point can be such a pain. That's why these easy, genius gift generators were created, and you're going to want to try every single one of them.

1. Crap-O-Matic Gift Generator

Does Crap-O-Matic sound like a joke? Yes. But it's real, it's hilarious, and it's great for white elephant gifts. Simply click on the lever, and you'll see finds like music to calm dogs and inflatable toupees, all accompanied by silly commentary. Of course, there's the option to buy now or to "share this crap."

2. POPSUGAR Gift Guide

POPSUGAR has hundreds of gift guides ready to make your holiday shopping easy. Filter your results by choosing who you're buying for and how much you'd like to spend and then start shopping! The gift guides range from specific (think "gifts to give your organized friend") to general so you're sure to find the perfect present for everyone on your list.


3. Shopstyle Holiday Generator

Shopstyle has a gift generator that's way more reliable and useful than Crap-O-Matic. Use it to find presents by first choosing from categories like person, article of clothing, and adjective that describes them. Your answers create a curated "store" of clothes and accessories that you can shop right away or further filter by dollar sign or sale.

4. Genius Gift Idea Generator

This one also starts like a quiz, and you have to answer questions like "Is the person 18+ or 40+?," "Are you close?," and "Is the party going to be normal or big?" However, the caveat is it won't give you a product that you can actually shop. Instead, it offers an idea, such as a "coffee cup with gift receivers name . . . Try local print shop."

Good luck out there, shoppers!
