Ok, so I've looked on Amazon for lens hoods for my 55 - 250mm and the only thing that showed was a generic hood for like 4 bucks. I want the quality ones but it seems theres no end all be all for lens hoods, im guessing each lens has to have its own hood? im a newb so i don't know for sure. Anyway does anyone know any compatable hoods for the following two lens? is there not one that would work for both?

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II
