Buying gifts for the holidays can be difficult, and some people are harder to buy for than others. But when searching for the perfect gift for someone, one thing I always keep in mind is how practical an item is. While some may choose to give grandiose gifts such as luxury-branded products or high-end gadgets like laptops and tablets, I prefer to ball on a budget by gifting everyday essentials that can bring comfort to friends and family -- in this case, Crocs.

Why it's a great gift: I'll admit that it took quite a while for me to hop on the Crocs bandwagon as I always thought they were for chefs and nurses only. But once I saw celebrities and some of my favorite designer brands collaborate for limited-edition collections, I thought I'd see how comfortable these clogs really are. I snagged myself a pair to try out.

After just a day of walking in them -- in both standard and sports mode, where the strap is placed down around your ankles -- I believe the hype. These Croslite-made (no, they're not made from rubber or plastic!) shoes are light, durable and obviously easy to wear. If you want to spice it up a bit, you can also buy Jibbitz, small badge-like accessories you can decorate your Crocs with.

What you'll pay: The list price for the Crocs Classic clogs is $50, but you can often find them for around $35 or less. And if you want to add some personality or bling, the Jibbitz charms start at $5.
