Shopping for the Tik Tok Fanatic in Your Life
Posted November 24, 2020
Let’s start with a good one. The TikTok Fanatic in Your Life.
We all know this person. They are by far, the coolest and trendiest of your friends. They are largely known to interrupt your conference calls with a link to a cherished moment or to the newest most popular trend on TikTok. They are the first to find viral content and know about the cranberry juice guy long before Stevie Nicks did. They are an exquisite creative mind, fueled by new up and coming music and an eye for delightful weirdness. They know all the latest video TikTok trends, like “relationship goals” and “#foryou.” So, what can you buy them that will possibly pull them away from TikTok’s creative flow and inspire them even more? Or what could you buy them to help them on their way to the coveted Tiktok fame? Unfortunately you can’t buy a million followers. However, there are many other good options you could try. Get your pen ready!
1. Blue light blocker eye glasses.
For the TikToker, a person dedicated to the screen, this is the best gift. Not only will it increase their clout with a “not trying, but trying” look in videos, but it will also improve their viewing experience while they scroll through Tik after Tok. We really love this DIFF Eyewear pair from Von Maur. They are a great practical gift – and they’re stylish too.
2. Airpods with Wireless Charging Case
This is a spendier option (sitting happily at $159 per pair), but such an ideal gift for a techy on the run. (Or an ideal gift for the tik toker who needs to seem as if they are checked in on a Zoom meeting, but in reality are following the #motivationmonday videos) Remember though! At the Apple Store, you have to make an appointment to shop. So, be sure to call beforehand if need be. Here’s more info to make an appointment at Rosedale Center.
3. This incredibly rustic and refined satchel from Addington Co.
These backpacks are so buttery and beautiful, you could almost eat them like steak. Chip, from Addington Co. is a lifelong outdoorsman and tinkerer and understands the demands of nature’s elements on each piece he crafts. He goes outside the box to represent the natural world in all its beauty. Not one bag is the same. We’re guessing TikTok people will love the uniqueness – and the space to pack their ring light and phone tripod. Plus the opportunity for stardom on the #fashiontiktok trend is a big plus.
4. Customized monogrammed pendant necklace.
This necklace from Von Maur is perfect for the TikTok lover. They adore personalized, unique gifts – and you can pick whichever letter you want! (Hint to the boyfriends out there: this is on your girlfriends For You Page, and she’s been trying to get it on yours.) Trendy meets classic: the definition of the creative person in your life.
5. Oversized hoodie or millennial streetwear.
Scrunchies, big sweatshirts and tye dye sweat suits are huge for the creative TikTok fans of the world. So, if you’re looking for the perfect gift, H&M has a lot of great options for you. Big, graphic tees and oversized everything is the way you want to go. Note: this is also a great gift because you don’t have to worry about sizing. It’s pretty much “Size Large” or better yet” Extra Extra Large” for everything (wink, wink).
6. A phone tripod for video.
For the TikToker video extraordinaire, get them this DJI Osmo Mobile 3 Gimbal from the Apple Store. Yeah, that’s quite the mouthful. However, this is such a great gift for those that want to expand their creative horizons. It’s a little more spendy (sitting at $99) but a gift much worth it.
7. A selfie mirror.
A TikTok trick: if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a ring light, a selfie mirror is a good second option, especially for a gift. At Macy’s you can buy this Jerdon Sharper Image Beauty Station mirror. That way, you can just lean your phone against it “selfie mode style” and tape those TikTok videos. The lighting also doubles as an ideal setup for a TikTok perfect makeup look.
8. LED lights.
Anyone need any mood lighting? A great gift for your TikToker friend is a set of LED Moodlight. You can find them at JCPenny. They can set it on constant rotation, flashing all the colors, to gain unique lighting and of course, more followers. They are super affordable and definitely a gift your friend or family member won’t expect, but won’t be able to contain their excitement about! (Grab a few so their whole room can turn into TikTok wonderland.)
