Teens are impossible to shop for. Every time you think you found something they may like, they either already have it or it has been dubbed as “weird,” “childish,” or some new phrase that means “weird” and “childish” that is only communicated via meme. Luckily, there is one thing we know teens love: TikTok. So to help with gifts for the teens in your life, we binged on TikToks keeping an eye out for items available on Amazon that teens are buzzing about. Here’s what we found.
If your teenager is looking to upgrade their bedroom from childhood vibes to more mature vibes, the best way to go is with this "Good Vibes" LED sign. It lights up and comes in different color options to perfectly match any room -- not just bedrooms, but game rooms, living rooms, and college dorm rooms as well. It's easy to hang up and all you have to do is plug it in to the wall to make it light up!
If we were to pick one Amazon product that went viral on TikTok, it would be these scrunch leggings -- dubbed the "butt leggings" by users. The scrunch detailing on these leggings assists your booty in looking plump and perfect, which is ever so important these days. Aesthetics aside, they're a great pair of leggings for the gym, hikes or any everyday activities.
There is really nothing cuter than this stuffed animal octopus that can be reversed to show a happy face on one side and a sad face on the other. Many teenage TikTokers have used these little guys to illustrate their moods -- and even the sad-faced octopus can make you feel a little happy. They come in a ton of different colors.
What's a sunset lamp? This unique fixture projects a circle of mood light onto a wall of your teen's room. With adjustable sizes and colors, it's a stylish way to amp up the ever-important ambience of photos and video calls. TikTokers have been using this sun lamp to create fun and creative lighting in their content as well as for sleeping, meditating and relaxing purposes.
What are two of teenagers favorite things? Candles and cereal! Now, put them together as one and you have this cereal bowl candle that looks and smells just like the real thing. Don’t let this candle fool you, it is not edible! Light it up in any room of your home for the most sweet and delicious smelling candle you have ever had. The best part? It can also work as a fun piece of artwork or decoration that teenagers can rest on their desk, dresser or side table!
Every teenager needs a speaker for music on the go -- gotta have tunes at basketball practices, the beach, or by the pool. This waterproof bluetooth speaker is a TikTok favorite that connects to your phone and is small enough to be stored in your backpack, purse or duffel bag. It may be a small accessory, but it pumps out big sound.
Since so many teens make their TikToks from the comfort of their own bedrooms, a good mini fridge has become a must-have piece of functional decor. This stylish Frigidaire mini fridge has made appearances in many successful clip, whether the TikToker is using it to store skin care products and makeup at a specific temperature, or to keep beverages and food handy and chilled.
If you think your teenager has outgrown the stuffed-animal phase, you might be wrong. These squishmallows have droves of followers on TikTok and teenagers all around the world have already started their collections. These squishy and fun stuffed animals come in all types of different shapes, colors and categories. Teenage TikTok stars will often have a pile of them on their bed, and by "a pile" we mean dozens and dozens of Squishmallows. They are so adorable, I just want to cuddle one!
We can all thank Billie Eilish for sharing this Kopari lipgloss with the Internet. Teenagers around the world are going crazy over this hydrating and illuminating balm that plumps and protects lip tissue. And it's inexpensive enough that you can get a bunch of 'em. Stash one in the car, one in your purse, one in your school locker -- you get the idea.
Hey, being a teenager is hard! You're often on your own when it comes to food: making your own breakfast or packing your own lunch while keeping track of the gear you need for school, practices and whatever else you've signed up for. Any busy teenager should appreciate the gift of this mini dash, which is one of the hottest breakfast tools TikTok has ever seen. Sure, you can whip up a quick batch of waffles, but this little wonder will also do anything from hash browns to eggs, and even pizza.
Comfortable and cozy, these slippers are inspired by pillows and clouds. Not only do they come in every color you can imagine, but they also come in most men's and women's sizes.

Watching TikToker Lauren Wolfe put these sponge roller curling rods in her hair, then remove them to reveal some of the most stunning, voluminous and tight curls you've ever seen, inspired many teens to pop over to Amazon and add them to cart. These rods create curls without heat, which should cause less damage and work on all types of hair texture and lengths.
Teens who are totally attached to their phones (which would be all teens) will love this waterproof phone holder, which attaches to the wall and protects their phone while they lather, rinse and repeat. Now they can respond to texts, listen to music and even play their favorite games as they get clean and fresh -- a habit that should be encouraged however possible.
Those who like makeup get it, and those who don’t, well -- they just don’t. This NYX concealer has to be one of the most talked about makeup items on the internet. It will hydrate your under eye, minimize your fine lines and make your skin look absolutely flawless and airbrushed. We suggest pairing this concealer with the NYX foundation for the best look.
Every true Tiktoker has seen these LED room lights in the background of the videos on their For You page. These lights create a whole new vibe in any room and can be controlled through a Bluetooth remote to change the color to over 10 different options.

It's a simple, convenient gift for a teen just starting to get comfortable in the kitchen.

This gizmo seems ridiculous (ok, it is), but it actually solves a problem. While you'd like teenagers to keep both hands on the wheel, they're going to snack on drive-thru food. It's going to happen. Dipping a nugget or fry into sauce is a two-handed activity -- or has been, until now. These dip clips hook on to the car's air vents provide a stable place to put those little tubs of sauce. These clips will allow a teen to keep a hand on the wheel and may reduce the chance of a fender-bender.
