Social media platforms tend to have their own unique ways for creators to make money, and for TikTok, this centers around virtual gifts viewers can buy and send to their favorites. With the recent trend of livestreamers acting like NPCs—and sometimes drawing in massive amounts of cash each day in the process—more people are interested in learning what TikTok gifts are, how they work, and how much TikTok gifts are worth.

What are TikTok gifts?

Gifts are virtual items viewers can send to creators, which can later be exchanged for real money. Though mainly intended to be a token of appreciation, they can also be used during livestreams to get a creator’s attention or to signal a reaction to something specific. They’re essentially just another exciting form of interaction between TikTok creators and their audience, with real-world financial benefits.

How do creators receive gifts?

TikTok creators can receive gifts through comments on their actual videos, or through livestreams, for accounts that are eligible to go live.

In order to enable gifts, creators have to meet the following qualifications:

  • be located in a part of the world that allows gifts
  • be at least 18 years old (or otherwise meet your country’s specific age requirements)
  • have a personal account in good standing

Enabling gifts on videos rather than livestreams also requires users to have a minimum of 10,000 followers and an account that’s been active for at least 30 days.

Those who meet the criteria can enable gifting on TikTok Live by navigating to their profile in the app, clicking on the three lines in the top right corner, choosing “Creator tools,” and accessing either the “Live gifts” or “Video gifts” option.

It’s also important to note that business accounts are not eligible to receive gifts, and they can’t be enabled on videos that are duets, stitches, advertisements, sponsored content, or promoted posts.

How do fans send TikTok gifts?

Anyone interested in buying gifts to send to creators first has to stock up on virtual coins. These can be purchased either on the website at a lower rate, or through the TikTok app. 

Coins can then be exchanged for gifts, either while viewing a creator’s livestream or while watching a video with gifting enabled. In both scenarios, there will be a gift icon on the screen that will show all the options available, as well as allow viewers to “Recharge” by buying more coins if they don’t have enough.

What is the most expensive TikTok gift?

Which TikTok gifts are available shifts over time, and that includes the platform adding new, more expensive gifts for those looking to drop a lot of coin to show a creator how much they appreciate their work.

The Lion was once the most talked about and most expensive TikTok gift, but currently that honor belongs to the TikTok Stars gift, which requires 39,999 coins, or between $424 and $606, depending on how the coins are purchased.

How does TikTok currency work?

As mentioned above, viewers have to purchase coins to exchange for the virtual gifts they would like to send to creators. After the creator has received the gift, they can convert it into diamonds, which can be exchanged for cash and withdrawn from their account once they have a minimum of $100.

It’s a complicated system, and one with shifting exchange values, making it difficult to gauge the exact amount an item will cost ahead of time, or how much money the creator might receive from it. This is particularly true when taking into consideration the varying cost of coins and availability of gifts.

For instance, purchasing a bundle of 660 coins on the TikTok app currently costs $9.99, whereas purchasing a custom bundle of 660 coins on the website will only cost $7. The value on the website comes to a little over $0.01 per coin. On the app, the value of a single coin is roughly one and a half cents, but seems to vary a little with each bundle.

How much are TikTok gifts worth?

While some gifts, like the TikTok stars, are extremely pricey, there are plenty of far more affordable options. Some even shake out to less than a single cent.

Of course, if the intent is to use them to tip a creator, understanding the rough monetary value is helpful. And to that end, it’s also important to note that TikTok takes a 50% cut of whatever a creator receives. So if they are gifted a Garland, worth 1500 coins, it might have cost the purchaser $22.50, but the creator would only receive $11.25 when all the exchanges are complete.

With that in mind, here is a partial list of TikTok gifts currently available, along with their cost in coins, and their rough monetary value if the coins are purchased in-app:
