    Just 30 TikTok-Approved Gifts If You're Shopping For Someone From Gen Z

    Get ready to be the trendiest gift-giver of the year with these TikTok-approved presents.

    1. Youthforia's color-changing BYO Blush that reacts to the pH of their skin, giving them *the* perfect lip or cheek color. They're gonna love it so much, they'll be tempted to sleep in it — and TBH, they actually can since this oil is made with skin-friendly ingredients that won't cause breakouts if they're too tired (or lazy) to remove it at night.

    Promising review: "I can go down the list of impulse buys I've made after seeing them on TikTok. Most of them fall way short of what I had hoped for or expected. Not this stuff. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. After turning 40 I've not been happy with my blush or tinted moisturizers. More often than not, they either pill or settle into my pores, etc. I don't wear very much makeup and I'm surely no makeup artist. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but to be honest, I'm not willing to put the time or effort into learning at this point in life. YOUTHFORIA to the rescue! This stuff is awesome. I can use it to create nothing more than a healthy glow, or can build it for more if I care to. It is undetectable once on the skin and it lasts all day. It's all I was hoping for and so much more. I highly recommend it." —Kate F.

    2. A popular checkerboard throw blanket giving Barefoot Dreams cozy vibes (but at a fraction of the price). Not only does this chic throw add the perfect pop of personality to any room, but it's also soooo soft that one reviewer compares it to the feel of fuzzy socks (that you can wrap your entire body in).

    Promising review: "I saw this blanket on TikTok and I have to say I absolutely love it. I washed it several times now and it’s maintained its elasticity and softness after each wash. It’s warm enough but not too hot for a throw. Absolutely recommend this blanket!" —Amy

    3. A gentle bubbly clay mask that'll be a fun addition to their skincare routine. This clay mask turns into a fizzy layer of foam that'll clear out all the icky gunk from their face, leaving them with a fresh and clean feeling.

    Check out a TikTok of the foaming mask in action.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! I received some for a gift and then purchased it for my daughter from Amazon. It feels like a clay mask going on, and then starts bubbling and turns to a thinner substance when it's done. I feel like it is very gentle on my face. My skin feels amazing after I wash it off. It feels like I used moisturizer, even though I did not. I hear that these masks are very popular in Japan." —L. Shea

    Promising review: "WOW!!!!! I can’t believe how well this works!!! I’ve seen this all over Instagram and TikTok, and wanted to try it. It’s so easy to put in, takes about a minute or two. Comfortable to sleep in. Then, you take it out, and it looks like you put all this effort into doing your hair. The curls turned out gorgeous, I’m so impressed!!" —Katie Oswalt

    7. A wireless, Bluetooth-enabled karaoke mic for your younger siblings who stay up until 2 a.m. on Tiktok Live performing the entire Beyonce Renaissance concert to their 10 followers. Look at you being so supportive.

    Promising review: "You don't understand TikTok made me obsess over this microphone. As a 30+ year old woman, I resisted purchasing it. I finally broke down and bought it because it was haunting me in my sleep. I'm so glad I did. When I am in a bad mood I start karaoke in my house and am instantly better. It has 'ruined' my teenage son's life because my performances can be heard through his XBOX microphone. This is a must have product." —Zane A. Undercoffer

    8. Cocktail Codex, a cocktail recipe book your friends and family who love to host would absolutely adore. This book is loved by everyone from professional bartenders to beginners because it breaks down the six most popular cocktails: the old-fashioned, martini, daiquiri, sidecar, whisky highball, and flip. It also shows you how to make your own combos and spin-offs based on what ingredients you have to work with!

    Promising review: "This book has easily become one of my favorites. Great base knowledge and would recommend to anyone seeking to further educate themselves on spirits and cocktails. Even the first few pages is full of useful information. Purchase this for yourself or even as a gift. I cannot say enough good things about this book." —Adriana

    9. pixel art game Bluetooth speaker just radiating retro vibes. This speaker functions as a clock, white noise machine, and even allows them to make their own pixel art (which dances along to their music BTW)!

    Promising review: "Sound quality and durability is very good! I like the ability to change the artwork on the cover, the ability to change the brightness of the image, the ability to change the volume of the startup/connect/disconnect, the auto-shutoff and auto-sleep mode toggles, and the ability to set multiple alarms (available on the app only, sadly, not out of the box). There's surprisingly a lot you can do with such a seemingly simple device, and it's made more than a great replacement alarm clock for me, which is initially what I bought it for. Highly recommend if you've got the extra coin to spend on something cute, fun, and practical!" —Soul Breaker

    11. satin pillowcase that'll be transformative for their personal care routine. Not only does it feel absolutely amazing to sleep on, but it'll also help retain moisture in their skin and create less friction on their hair, meaning less frizziness, tangles, and breakage.

    Promising review: "I'm really liking this pillow. I woke up today with nice wavy hair, not dry tangled hair. I've been trying to grow out the layer of hair on the top back of my head and it's been so stubborn! Keeps getting tangled and breaks here and there from bleaching and dye damage, but with this new pillow I notice it doesn't tangle, which means it can grow right without rubbing and tangling/pulling! So I'm excited to see what happens by the end of summer! Also the pillow is soft and is so much more prettier in person! 😍😍😍💖💖💖" —Amazon Customer 🌷

    Promising review: "I like how this diffuser kind of looks like a mini fireplace and it’s perfect for winter. I also like how long the water of this diffuser lasts — I always add my favorite essential oil in it when I go to sleep every night without worrying it will run out of water. I used to have insomnia and it helped me to sleep through the night with my relaxing essential oil scent, and it also worked as a humidifier." —Benny
