Over the past few years, TikTok has become an integral part of our daily routines and 2022 is no different. While we've spent this year learning how to tie a scarf into a top 15 different ways, spruce up our home decor to fit the ‘Coastal Grandmother' aesthetic and attempt to make the delicious spicy air fryer shrimp, it’s the "TikTok Made Me Buy It" videos that have us scrolling through and adding these must-have items to our cart. From the Always pan to Beis Weekender bag, here are the 30 best gifts we’ve discovered on TikTok to buy someone on your wishlist (or yourself) this holiday season.

These 31 Beauty Products Went Viral on TikTok, so Naturally We're Buying Them ASAP

1. About Face Matte Fluid Eye Paint

Eye makeup was super popular on the platform this year (think: siren eyes, rockstar makeup and under eye blush). But the one item that exploded overnight was this $16 pick. The eye paint promises a pop of color with a single swipe, and of course, a few PureWow editors had to put that theory to the test. (Spoiler alert: It holds true.) It comes in 26 shades that are high-pigmented, mattified and overall smudge-free.

2. Colorfulkoala High Waisted Leggings

These high-waisted yoga pants are currently the number one best seller on Amazon, and for good reason. Over 38,000+ five-star reviews attest to their comfort (largely thanks to the seamless waistband) and wide color selection. And don't forget to surprise the runner in your life by mentioning the two deep side pockets, which are useful for storing everything from keys to phones.

Size Range: XS to XL

3. Solawave

A jazzy skincare tool is always a hot commodity on TikTok—just look at the gua sha, ice globes and facial brushes for reference. So, it's no surprise that red light therapy devices are joining in on the fun. Use this wand for about five minutes a day to smooth textured skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and fade blemishes over time. As PureWow editor Olivia Kappler shares, "I’ve really started to look forward to using my SolaWave, as it’s the perfect end of day treat."

4. FLEXISPOT Home Office Standing Desk Exercise Bike

Here’s your sign to gift your new coworker (aka your lovely partner) this standing desk and exercise bike to keep them on their toes and out of your hair. Now they can hit their daily steps, while taking work calls.

5. YogaToes

Know a person who's constantly on their feet? They’ll enjoy giving their toes a little reprieve from the swelling and pain, while watching TV—or better yet, scrolling through TikTok.

6. Always Pan

The cook in the fam needs this all-in-one pan—which can replace an eight-piece cooking set—minimizing the dishes in the sink after a meal. Seriously, the 10-inch pan checks off all the boxes. It’s scratch-resistant, nonstick and ideal for cooking almost any type of dish. Plus, it comes in nine colors (like heat, spice and blue salt) to match any kitchen aesthetic.

7. No Boundaries Women’s Knit Chelsea Boots

Yup, these “Walmart boots” are a big hit for the colder months ahead. Choose between the three colors (bone, blush and black) or snag them all. For only $30 a pair, you (or your fashionista bestie) can stay comfy all season long.

Size Ranges: 6 to 11

8. PVO Mini Projector

Sorry folks, TVs are officially out and mini projectors are in. Use one to binge-watch Stranger Things or try out TikTok’s "Fake Window Challenge," where users transform their bedroom walls into visually-appealing shots of nature, space and even an aquarium. But of course, you can always just host a movie night instead.

9. Smile Makers The Billionaire

Finding the right vibrator can be overwhelming. Thankfully, Smile Makers made things a bit easier with their online quiz. And no matter which toy you go with, all of them are small, soft and silent (so you don’t have to worry about waking up your roommate). Personally, we’re fans of The Billionaire, which has four speeds and two pulsation modes for gentle stimulation that can easily build to more intense orgasms.

10. Makeup Brush Cleaner

We won't judge if your brushes haven't been cleaned in ages. Let an electric cleaner solve your problems. This tool has eight rubber collars to make it compatible with just about any brush. Plus, it only requires three steps to use: add cleaning liquid, water and watch the machine remove all the gunk. Oh, and it dries them, too.

11. Sunset Lamp

The college kid in your life will love to spruce up their dorm room with this lamp (because LED lights were so 2020). The projection lamp mimics a stunning sunset and decorates the whole space in orange and amber hues, so they can enjoy a permanent golden hour. It also offers a load of other colors to match the ambience for any occasion.

12. VoChill Stemmed Wine Chiller Pair

The VoChill keeps drinks nice and crisp for up to 1.5 hours indoors and 45 minutes outdoors. Plus, it comes with an extra cradle, so they’ll never have to worry about sipping on room temperature vino again.

13. Bonoak Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone

It's time to take carpool karaoke to the next level. This Bluetooth microphone amplifies your voice like you're performing for a full arena of your adoring fans. There's no need to attach it to your phone (or car) so your duet partner can enjoy adding some choreography to the mix. (Or in the case of Tiktoker Tonia Erin, you can always use it to embarrass your kid at school drop-offs).

​​14. Tennis Skirt

OK, you don’t have to be a star athlete like Serena to rock this chic pick. A popular fashion item of 2022, tennis skirts give you both comfort and style. This one’s key features include soft and stretchy material, a high waistband, ruffle design and hidden pockets to store your phone. It comes in 21 colors to pair with any outfit.

Size Ranges: XS to XL

15. AstroAI Mini Fridge

While there's still a debate about whether or not you should refrigerate your skincare products, it doesn't stop users from displaying their collections in this $46 find. It has four liters of capacity (to store serums, masks or even those aesthetically pleasing clear mini water bottles). But it's not only for cooling; the fridge also keeps items warm if needed.

16. Plantifique Exfoliating Foot Masks (Pack of 2)

Surprise mom with this at-home salon experience. The exfoliating foot mask peels away dead skin (and offers a rather interesting look at the process first-hand). Most importantly, it will leave her feet looking and feeling soft.

17. Ronxs Candle Lighter

Let grandma swap her matches for a rechargeable lighter instead. A push of a button can make it easier to light up the Homesick candle you also surprised her with for the holiday.

18. BISSELL Little Green Portable Spot and Stain Cleaner

With over 2,000+ five-star reviews, this portable cleaner is no joke. The tool can scrub, lift and spray any dirt and stains you have lying around your home. From removing pet hair to restoring a carpet's original color, Tiktok uses maintain there's nothing this thing can't do.

19. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer

Know a person who's always splurging on blowouts? The Revlon One-Step is for them. With over 250,000+ five-star reviews, this rounded-brush can dry hair and give it volume, thanks to three heat and speed settings and an easy to grip handle.

20. The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peel Solution

The affordable skincare line is still a fan-favorite in the beauty world (if you can get your hands on a bottle before it sells out). But it’s the peeling solution that has flooded your FYP with before/after shots of the treatment. In over 2,000+ 5-star reviews, customers raved about how it exfoliates and tightens skin, with one reviewer stating, "[I] love the slight tingle factor. I leave [it] on for 10 minutes and do it twice a week. [It] makes my 48-year-old skin tighten & so soft. The entire line is amazing. The price and quality can't be beat."

21. Nori Iron

The handheld Nori Iron is not your traditional iron. Instead, it employs a clamp feature to ensure a smooth finish (even on harder areas like collars and arm holes) with no ironing board required. Users also swear by the steam reservoir design, which keeps temperature and steam pressure in check so no article of clothing will have a water (or burn) stain.

22. Squishmallow Maui The Pineapple

Whether you're shopping for your child, grandma or yourself, squishmallows are the cutest gift of the season. Yes, they're trending on TikTok...but they're also extremely pleasant to hold and honestly, who wouldn't want a smiley pineapple on their bedside?

23. UBeesize Selfie Stick Tripod

Your sister can finally work on her TikTok videos (and maybe let you be a part of them) thanks to this all-in-one tripod, which can hold her phone and take a ton of shots with just a click of the bluetooth remote. (It's even a fave of Kaley Cuoco, who snagged herself one after a PureWow interview.)

24. PhoneSoap Smartphone UV Sanitizer

We all know one person who's constantly on their phone (we’re looking at you Aunt May). So, gift them a cool tech find that sanitizes any phone (or keys, smartwatches and even your credit card) for 10 minutes, while it's charging it.

25. Treadly

Who needs a gym membership when this at-home device exists? Coined “the world’s thinnest treadmill,” your pal can enjoy a run or a nice stroll without it taking up too much space in their apartment. At only 73 pounds and 3.7 inches thick, they can pack it away and pull it out during work time with no problem.

26. Beis Weekender Bag

Your travel companion will enjoy having a carry-on that fits everything and meets TSA requirements. The tote has a large base to stow all of your clothes, a bottom compartment to keep shoes and/or toiletries separate and a back sleeve to slip it right on top of your luggage as your walk through the airport. One PureWow editor couldn’t praise the bag enough, stating: “The Beis Weekender has easily earned a spot among my travel essentials and I’m jazzed to see where it comes with me next.”

27. Ultimate Hair Gems Set

The resurgence of Y2K beauty has brought us everything from zig zag parts to butterfly clips. One thing that’s topping TikTok right now? Hair gems. This bad boy lets you bedazzle your mane like you’re coming straight out of an episode of Euphoria. The set includes 180 sticky gems to rock with any hairstyle.

28. Gold Hoop Earrings Set

A pair of gold earrings are a must, but a whole set? Yes, please. Your giftee will appreciate having options with six chunky hoops to rock for any event. And for only 16 bucks, these 14k jewelry pieces can’t be beat.

29. Anti-Motion Sickness Smart Glasses

The best gifts are the most useful ones. These anti-motion sickness glasses (loved by customers and celebs alike) make car rides a bit better. The pair features built-in blue fluid and a four circular design to reduce sickness, dizziness and headaches.

30. Dexas MudBuster Portable Dog Paw Cleaner

With over 35,000 five-star reviews, the dog owner in your life will appreciate this snazzy contraption. The paw cleaner removes all the dirt and mud from their doggo’s fun day at the park. The silicone bristles are gentle on the paws, while being small enough to store in your bag. Plus, it comes in three sizes for all pups, including that big furball, Cooper.
