Hello! You’ve most likely landed here because you just searched “TikTok gifts” on your browser. Now, what is a “TikTok gift,” beyond a combination of words one Googles in order to find out what the hell to buy their niece or nephew for the holidays? Let us enlighten you, if you haven’t had the pleasure of draining hours of your life scrolling endlessly on the platform yourself.

Often, like a new dance or recipe trend, specific products go viral on TikTok. One user will rave about something, like Amazon leggings that accentuate your behind, for example, and before you know it, your entire feed (your For You page, if you want the correct TikTok terminology) is covered in people testing that product out for themselves. Many of these items are small life hacks, perfect little gifts for Secret Santa or stocking stuffers.

So if you’re looking to show you’re hip and in the know with the kids these days, look no further than one of these 16 TikTok gift ideas.
