These items are the definition of “TikTok made me do it.” TikTok users love a good hack, and these viral items are designed to make life much easier. From hi-tech gadgets to blankets and beyond, here are 10 viral TikTok items you simply need to try.
Once a product goes viral on TikTok, everybody wants one. No matter how random, expensive or unnecessary (see: bedazzled tissue box).
Viral items have exploded on the platform in the past year. Videos of people trying their toys out have received millions of views. It’s easy to see why! TikTok products are often convenient and environmentally friendly. Usually, we wouldn’t think twice about changing a lightbulb, or opening a can of tuna. After TikTok introduced re-chargeable LED bulbs and electronic can openers, we realized we can’t live without them.
Here are 10 of the most viral TikTok items for you to add to your shopping list.
Calligraphy Pens (17.1K views)
What’s not to love? Taking a leaf out of Pinterest’s book, the TikTok calligraphy pens allow users to hone their creativity. Crayola felt tips have been cited as a cheap hack.
Re-Chargeable Candle Lighter (556.9K views)
Running out of matches can be frustrating if you’re a candle lover. The re-chargeable candle lighter is flameless and mains-operated. All you need to do is plug it into the nearest outlet after a few uses.
Tissue Box/Mask Holder (714K views)
The bedazzled box sticks on your car visor for easy access to face masks. All you need to do is provide the masks, slot them in and you’ll never have to worry about going out bare-faced again.

Shower Head (211.7 million views)
The ‘Zen Body’ shower head allegedly improves water pressure. There are three settings for you to choose from, depending on how powerful you like your wash. The “beans” in the head supposedly “purify” the water, getting rid of “contaminants.”

Dyson’s Airwrap styling wand was the must-have product of 2020. TikTok stylists were able to achieve a salon-standard blow wave within their own homes.
