Hi guys! Here we are at another Tiktok Made Me Buy blog post. What can I say? I’m an online shopaholic who got absolutely no brakes when it comes to checking out products from Shopee. I’m sorry. I think we could all understand how online shopping is the only thing that can bring us happiness these days, especially during another lockdown.
Because we are once again not allowed to go out and there isn’t that much to do at home, Tiktok is mostly how I keep myself entertained. And out of all of the social media apps, Tiktok is the most likely place for you to get budol-ed or influenced to buy products. You just have to have the items there because you feel like you need them! They are the solutions to your problems, even the ones that you didn’t even know you had.
By now, I should probably put a big ‘ol trigger warning. Your wallets might not come out alive by the end of reading this blog post! But you know, inflation will only lessen the value of the money you keep so might as well spend it, right? And doesn’t life just seem so incomplete if you don’t have a package you’re waiting to be delivered right to your doorstep? We need that excitement and thrill in our lives. Imagine the unboxing experience and finally being able to have that product in your very hands. Your life will just get a thousand times easier. Your days will be a thousand times happier!
It’s been a couple of months after my first TikTok haul and well, I’ve collected a bunch of other items that I’m just so enthusiastic to share with you guys. Let me tell you, I don’t just buy ordinary stuff, alright? These are cool and interesting items that I’m sure you guys will find fascinating as well. Each of these products changed my life in a big way. Honestly, they’re kinda making the never-ending lockdown less miserable.

Shopee Budol: 25 Ultimate Tiktok Finds the Lockdown Made Me Buy!
Electric Rechargeable Lighter
Okay, I don’t smoke. There are electric lighters specifically for cigarettes, but this one isn’t it. I bought this item because it’s so frigging cool! Imagine not having to bother with matches or lighters that run out of fluid ever again? You just have to recharge this for a couple of minutes before it’s good to go.
It uses electric charges to produce a flame. Like ZAP, you have fire! Amazing, right? I’ve only used my electric lighter to light birthday cakes and also my favorite lavender-scented candles from Wicked Scents!
Led Lights and Moon Lamps have got nothing on Sky Lamps! This completely transforms your entire room into an open sky. It also has several settings/ moods you could choose from. These are a total trip, perfect for setting sentimental moods at night as you play soft sad songs. I swear, it’s super satisfying. You could spend hours just staring up at your ceiling as you contemplate your life choices and low-key cry. We spend most of our lives inside our rooms now so this can be a sort of relief or escape for a lot of us!
Clicker / Phone Bluetooth Shutter Remote
This is a Bluetooth clicker for your phone so you can take pictures of yourself when you’re alone. If you’re like me who’s alone forever and got no one to help take pictures of himself, this is a great tool for you! You won’t have to run back and forth to set your timer every time you wanna take a picture. You just gotta pose and click. Strick all the poses you want, click away to get those Instagram-worthy pictures! Wished this worked on Tiktok tho! Haha
I miss fingerprint scanners on phones, so I went looking for them elsewhere. LOL. If you’re like me who’s forgetful about the most basic things in life, this is for you. Goodbye to ordinary padlocks you always lose the keys for or combination padlocks you always forget the passcode for. With this padlock, you just gotta press your finger on it, and it opens. It’s too easy and freaking futuristic. I’m definitely looking forward to using this on my luggage in the airport or on hotel closets during a vacation to protect my belongings.
Living near the longest and most congested highway in the Philippines, my bedroom can get quite dusty. Also, the lack of air circulation makes the atmosphere stuffy and literally suffocating. This air purifier was a game-changer and I’ve grown heavily dependent on this handy device. I swear when I first plugged it in, it was like I had my first breath of air ever since the lockdown started. The air-purifier doesn’t really produce fresh air, but a more manufactured cleaner air. They say that the true test of air quality is if you can breathe like silk. Also, having an air-purifier suddenly made me aware of the air quality of a room right when I step in. Isn’t that funny? After about some time though, I’m not really sure if our air purifier is still working or maybe we’ve just gotten used to having it on all the time.
It’s best to take note of the size of the room when considering which air purifier to buy. You should also go for higher-quality air purifiers with exchangeable filters. Those can be quite expensive, but it is worth the investment really. I mean, you breathe every second, right?
Wireless Keyboard Remote with Touchpad
Now if you’ve got a smart TV, I’m sure it’s a hassle for you to use your remote when typing out the titles of the shows and movies you want to watch on Netflix. With this device, you can not only type out the words easily on your TV screen but also use the trackpad to navigate around the screen with ease. You’ve just unlocked more ways to enjoy your TV. Totally removes the hassle by 70%! Haha.
If you haven’t had the sensation of physical touch because of the isolation brought about by the lockdown, this blanket will you comfort. This blanket is filled with weights that stimulate the experience of being cradled or held like a baby again. Won’t this just put you straight to sleep? Of course, I wish that it wasn’t so hot in the Philippines so that we could just use it more often, right?
LED Strip Lights
If you spend most of your waking hours watching videos on Tiktok, you might notice how LED lights are in every Tiktoker’s background. I get the trend because having LED lights is so much fun, especially when you got to spend all day in your dark boring room. You can switch the settings of your LED lights to a variety of bright colors and patterns depending on your mood. Personally, I placed mine around my work set up just to make the hours of working from home bearable. I mean, extra fun! I would recommend matching the color settings and patterns to the Spotify playlists you’re listening to and then, just let your mind wander away.
Power Bank Multifunctional Hand Fan
This is not just your normal handheld fan. This particular fan comes with a detachable power bank which means it’ll last longer than any other handheld fan you probably own. I couldn’t tell you how much of a lifesaver this thing has become especially when traveling or doing errands where I have to wait in line. And if you don’t really need the fan, you could leave the piece at home and take the power bank with you, I mean we all need some extra charge, right?
Anti-Allergy UVC Mite Vacuum Cleaner
A vacuum cleaner for your bed, pillows, and cushions. Over time, our soft and fluffy beds and pillows collect dust which can lead to allergies, skin irritations, and in my case, acne. This vacuum serves as a good helper by using its quadruple mite removal system combining light, heat, beating, and suction with four wheels at the bottom that allow ease of movement. I personally use this product every time I change sheets, just to ensure that the bed I’m spending all my hours sulking on is clean. More surface for my tears to shed! Haha.
Rechargeable Emergency Light
We’ve been experiencing power outages more often now in Metro Manila. It’s super inconvenient and annoying every time this happens, especially when you’re right in the middle of working from home. This emergency light is super powerful and lasts for hours. It’s always handy to have emergency resources that you can easily whip out when needed. Total life savior when you need a source of light in these dark and tragic times.
Portable Water Heater/ Boiler
This has to be the strangest thing I’ve seen around Shopee, but hey it works. If you’re like me who isn’t fancy and doesn’t have his own heater installed in his shower system, this product is a great alternative. You don’t need to be rich to have a hot warm bath. It’s very easy to use. You just gotta fill a pail with water and drop the metal iron in and then, plug it in the outlet. Just a warning that you have to be very careful when you use this, alright? Don’t put your hand in while the iron is in the water because you might get burned or electrocuted. Unplug the device, and then allow some time before you remove it from the pale. Then, enjoy your hot bath!
Another must-have for your bed! If you’re a side sleeper and a hugger, could you even describe a more perfect product? Now, you’ve got enough material to hug with all of your might! I would probably prefer this over cuddles with another human being because I think this is more comfortable. This won’t up and leave you for no reason. Haha.
Now, this is something I am most excited about. With loft beds, you’re maximizing the space in your room by having your bed placed up high. These Loft Beds come in various designs and you could literally do anything you want to do with the space you now have underneath your bed. There are loft beds designed to have a table for a workspace. There are also some with built-in closet space. You can ask for other customizations or leave it bottom space empty and think have a living-room space decorated there.
The idea of a loft bed is just so brilliant for me. I can’t wait to have this put up in my new room. Even if my room will be small, I will still be able to fit everything in from my oh-so-cluttered life. Thanks to the Loft Bed. I’ll literally have all of the things I need in my room and more space to do whatever the hell I want with it. Amazing!
Work From Home Items
Foldable Ergonomic Bluetooth Keyboard
Yes, this keyboard does all of that. It’s sleek, and foldable that it can even fit in your pocket. It easily connects to your Bluetooth so you can get to writing on your phone, tablet, or computer. It’s also rechargeable so you wouldn’t have to waste triple-A batteries. I’m also a fan of anything ergonomic so its vector layout makes typing for hours easier and more comfortable on my wrists.
As a writer, this has got to be my most favorite thing in the world right now. I can’t wait to take it out on coffee shops again when the pandemic is over and just type away all afternoon while drinking coffee from my beloved Stojo Collapsible Cup.
Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones
I am tired of listening with my ears, so I am choosing to listen with my bones instead! SCIENCE!! I’m the type of person who listens to music when I work and if I don’t listen to music, I do not function. Now, it doesn’t seem to be healthy at all to be listening to music on headphones for 16 hours a day. My ears would normally scream in desperation because they would hurt so bad at the end of the day. So yeah to give my ears a break, I purchased these bone conduction headphones. I’ve had my eye on it for a long time and now that I’ve bought it, I couldn’t be happier. My ears could finally breathe and I could listen to music as long as I want. Since I’m only at home, the background noise isn’t really a bother so there isn’t a need for noise-cancellation.
This product is actually marketed for athletes. I also use this when working out or lifting weights. Because it’s light, you can freely perform a wide range of motion with any part of your body. This is also perfect for joggers or bikers, who need to have a sense of their surroundings while they go about. With this product, they can enjoy doing cardio while listening to any kind of music on their phones. It’s also sweat-proof so you can easily wipe it down after use. Also, this is waterproof which means you can use this while swimming! These headphones are just on a whole other level, am I right? Nothing is impossible these days, it seems.
Electric Standing Desk
Electric Standing desks are a thing and I get it. Sitting on your butt all day as you slave yourself for a corporation is so not good for your back. With this product, you can work however you feel like working for that time of day, whether it be sitting or standing. Imagine even putting in a bit of workout while you do some work? How very resourceful of your time, am I right?
Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard
Now, this is a lifestyle. That’s much I learned from Tiktok. The amount of money people pay to customize their own mechanical keyboards is wild. Now, I find the keycaps, RGB lights, and the ASMR sounds to be satisfying as well, but for my workspace, I only go for ergonomic. The product has to provide ease of use, even after hours and hours of usage for work. What I like about this particular mechanical keyboard is how you can split them into two so you can type with your wrists in a more comfortable position. Totally makes writing these lengthy blog posts a lot more fun as well!
Now, I currently have a Gaming Chair in my workspace at home and I love it so freaking much. This chair that I found on Shopee I have to admit is much cooler. It’s super soft, and it can also recline all the way back. The major difference is it also has a retractable stool so you can put your foot up! I mean it even has a built-in massager. Overkill much? And yeah, it’s so much cheaper than a Gaming Chair as well. Totally recommend this to everybody else who works from home or has hours-long online classes. You can now sleep during meetings or classes. You’re welcome! Just kidding…
Portable External Monitor
I have already been conditioned to do work on at least 2 monitors. I need it, especially when doing Excel, HTML work, or creating content for my blog. If I could lunge my external monitor with me wherever I want, I would. I would take my external monitor with me on vacations or in coffee shops as I do my blog work. I can’t tho. It doesn’t fit in luggage, and it has to be plugged into an outlet to function.
But with a Portable External Monitor, I don’t have to deal with all that hassle! It’s slim, light, and compatible with almost any device. I’ve been searching for an item like this in Shopee for so long and thank God, it’s about time it actually exists. So if you’re working in a hotel room or away from work on some other location, you could still have that same level of comfort and get your work done. Problem solved!
Copy and Paste Mechanical Keyboard
Don’t listen to your teachers when they say, it is bad to copy and paste. I tell you that for most of your corporate work, this is most of what you’re going to be doing. I forbid plagiarism as a content creator of course, but copy-pasting is just a part of our lives now, close to drinking water. Especially for coding, copy-pasting just has to be easier than always having to click a total of 4 keys every time. Did you know a person uses copy and paste an average of 30 times a day? That’s why I think this product just made my life a thousand times easier! I’m sure you guys would agree as well. Kids, just remember to cite your sources when you copy and paste alright? (To set settings for your keys, download the program at https:/osu.sayobot.cn/download/).
Clip Bendable Table Lamp
If you’re working remotely and have a workspace set up, a ring light is kinda a necessity. You need to look good on camera-on video meetings. I also love how this particular lamp has a flexible neck so you can twist it on particular angles that are more flattering to you. And what I’ve discovered doing virtual meetings for more than a year already is the more lights in your setup, the better you look!
I initially bought a condenser microphone for my podcast, but I kept using it during daily virtual meetings with my team. Speaking into a condenser mic kinda levels up the meeting experience for the people you’re having the calls with. Now, you just gotta practice your radio voice and even do a bit of ASMR. I got the cheapest quality microphone I could find in Shopee, but there are a lot more out there with better quality at a slightly higher price range. I’ve bought the Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand, the Mic Mount Holder, and Wind Fur Filter Cover separately just to complete the set and have the full voice recording experience.
6-in-1 USB-C HUB Adapter
With the newer versions of laptops that are released each year, the ports they provide seem to be less and less. I don’t know if it’s because they’re trying to achieve a more sleek or modern design or are just trying to inconvenience their users by having to buy multiple adapters. For Macbook users, this is a major annoyance because they only provide you with one port. With the range of laptop accessories we need to attach to our device, this isn’t practical at all. This adapter from Baseus has everything you absolutely need to fully utilize your powerful computer. They have multiple versions of their adapter and your can chose the right one that fits your needs. I picked the adapter I need for working remotely. Mine has 3 USB slots, an HDMI port for my second monitor, an input for USB-C, and a port for an ethernet cable. Everything fits in my work set-up quite perfectly!
Super Clean Slime
Slime isn’t just for kids. It’s for cleaning as well. Getting water on your devices is risky because you might unintentionally break them. This slime gets into the crevices of your laptops, mouse, or other electronic devices on your tables and picks up the dirt, dust, and debris with ease. This product is not wet and sticky on the hands at all and you can use it as many times as you want as long as it’s not completely covered in debris already!
Heavy Duty Power Bank (Can Charge Laptop!)
If you want the ultimate power bank, this is your best bet. We bought this particular power bank for instances when we experience a sudden power outage. You can charge as many as 4 devices at the same time. It even has a USB-C slot for super-fast charging. It’s almost as big and heavy as a brick, but you’ve got enough power to go around for everyone. Perfect for road trips and traveling!
And do you know that this power bank is also strong enough to charge your laptop? We all suffer from anxiety about our laptop batteries running low, just as we’re about to finish doing our work. Electrical outlets aren’t necessarily available wherever we go. Just as long as you have a Type-C USB lightning cable, and you have a laptop that has USB Type-C charging input, you can charge it with this power bank! I’m already excited to bring this when I do my weekly coffee shop runs again to write my blogs.
If you have some confidential papers you want to dispose of or you want to shred papers for recycling, this is a product you’ll enjoy. It’s also weird how satisfying the act of paper shredding is. I would totally shred all of my test papers with a score that’s lower than 100! Haha. This is completely manual and you shred easy paper by turning the lever. Work those arm muscles!
If you sit on your ass for hours upon hours of slaving yourself for a corporation, this product is something that you need. The honeycomb structure of the seat cushion equally distributes the weight of your body as you’re sitting so there will be less stressed on your but cheeks. It will also allow for airflow so it won’t be as warm down there. We all just want to be more comfortable with our setups!
Magnetic Phone Case with Cardholder Wallet
A new big feature in the iPhone 12 released last September 2020 day was Magsafe. A magnet at the back of a phone? How very innovative of Apple once again… Why buy the newest model of an iPhone when you could just buy a case with a magnet? So, that’s actually what I did. I liked the idea of sticking my phone up in metal places for when I watch series on Netflix or take Tiktok videos. A magnetic back to your phone has a lot of possibilities and I didn’t have to pay as much money for a new phone just for that functionality. Also, I got it with a cardholder wallet which is perfect now that almost all of the shops are going cashless.
If you don’t have an air fryer at this point of the quarantine, well you are a survivor! Will all the air fryer recipe videos on Tiktok and exclusive deals on Shopee, we just couldn’t resist buying our own. No regrets though!
Honestly, you don’t really need an air fryer especially if you already have an oven, but it does help if you’re cooking a large amount of food for your family. I also absolutely love how we can use less oil when frying. The food doesn’t taste the exact same as it would be pan-fried on oil, but at least there are fewer calories. I just think one of the bad sides of an air fryer is how they are such a hassle to clean!
So this is a dryer for your lettuce. If you don’t like to eat wet lettuce for your salad or at-home samgyupsal, this is a total must-have! It’s a really simple tool, but wow does it do the job and in such a short time! You no longer need to dry out each leaf on paper towels one by one. Give it a whirl, and you’re ready to stuff that lettuce-wrapped meat right in your mouth!
Another gem that came across my for you page in Tiktok. Imagine ice cubes you can use again and again that will not dilute your drink? Now, nobody can say you cannot put ice in your wine anymore. No one! I am the type of person who likes his beverages cold so this product is my go-to whenever I whip up my iced coffee for all-nighter working on these blogs.
If you want to keep your beverage at your preferred temperature for much longer, this product is a must-have! For someone like me who tends to take their time finishing their drink, this is a god-send. Now, I can enjoy my drink for as long as I can while I try to finish some tedious work. No more wasted coffee and tea just because they’ve reached room temperature. It’s also amazing that even after 4 hours, the ice has barely melted. You could totally get a refill! I would totally sneak in some alcohol in this mug. Margaritas, anyone?
Insulated Tea-Infuser Tumblers
Now, this product is perfect if you want to drink tea all day, every day. I drink tea every day, but not those that come in teabags. I drink loose leaf teas because of the environment and also, they have a wider variety of flavors. You just need to fill the top compartment with your tea leaves, and the tumbler with your hot or cold water and then turn it upside down to get it brewing. Would totally recommend this if you want to make cold brew tea for the next day.
Electric Handheld Milk Frother
If you wanna step up your coffee game, this simple gadget can work wonders! It’s small but powerful. You can make your favorite Dalgoda coffee in seconds, faster than the manual whipping we’ve seen around Youtube tutorial videos. But, don’t limit yourself! You can go as far as making your own blends of iced coffees. You may not be able to make Starbucks quality drinks, but hey at least you’ve saved money while making great coffee for yourself!
How Full is Your Cart at this Point?
So yeah, those are more of the stuff that I have so far. I’ll be sure to write another blog post if I’ve stocked up on more interesting Shopee finds from Tiktok. For certain, I am not gonna stop online shopping. I just wish that I had all the money in the world to buy all the stuff I want because everything you can ever imagine is on the internet!
Credits to my sister who found a lot of these items online. She’s already a Platinum Shopee member. It’s also so cool that all of these items are what we actually use on a daily basis. They’re all practical and not that expensive. If you guys want more online shopping finds to fuel your passion for wasting, I mean investing your money, you can go ahead and check out my other online shopping hauls!
