The best TikTok-approved sunset lamps to buy:

1. Litupmyroom Sunset/Rainbow LED Light Projector Lamp

Grab this TikTok spill for under $50, giving your room that influencer aesthetic. This Sunset/Rainbow LED light projector lamp has unique colorways that expand the sense of space (sort of like therapy lamps) while illuminating your environment and creating “visual meditation." (Spark it up while listening to one of the best meditation apps and you can create actual meditation, too.)

The lamp head is adjustable and can be rotated 90 degrees forward and backward, so you’re sure to hit those killer angles.

2. DAHAI 90° Rotation Rainbow Projection Lamp 

If you dream of creating romantic #FlipTheSwitch challenges, you need to invest in this modern floor lamp. Amazon’s specifications read: “Please remember that due to the lighting effects, the monitor’s brightness/contrast settings, etc, there will be some slight differences in the color of the pictures and the actual items. Measured by hand, deviations of 1-2 cm are possible.”

3. Seyurigaoka Projection Sunset Light with 90° Rotatable Rainbow Bedroom Lamp

Do you want to be able to set off the atmosphere at home? The Walmart-sold sunset scene lamp is available to pick up on your daily shop and it’s still in stock!

4. The Trendy Stuff Rainbow Led Night Light

Don’t be limited by the time of the day—get this LED light instead! Unlike flashguns, speed-light LEDs are constant light sources so you can create content at any time. 

5. Halo Sunset Projector Floor Lamps

Now, these Halo sunset lamps are on the higher-cost end of the spectrum and might be out of the budget for an everyday TikToker, but they're definitely worth the money if you’re a habitual creator on the platform.
