But I must admit, as much as I dislike the darn thing, TikTok is a goldmine for finding unique and creative gift ideas this holiday season.

1. The ing Candle

This "This Smells Like My Vagina" candle from Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop went so viral it sold out almost instantly. Nothing says "happy holidays" like the scent of some Hollywood hotty's private parts (right!?). While her candle is no longer available, Amazon has some knockoffs—and who knows, they might smell even better!
