One of the more recent features that has been added to TikTok, specifically to the TikTok live video section of the platform, is the ability to send “gifts” to creators.

Users on TikTok can spend real, tangible money on gifts that they send to creators.

These gifts are then transferred into real monetary donations for the creators who produce content and receive gifts – making this one of the best ways for influencers and creators to amass an income through the app.

To put it plainly, a TikTok gift is a visual way of sending money to a creator that you appreciate – with the lion being ranked as one of the most expensive and highly coveted gifts available.

The Cost of a Lion Gift

There are countless different gifts that TikTok users can select and send to their favourite creators, all of which translate into different sums of money.

These gifts are bought with TikTok coins, which cost real money to buy and keep in an in-app purse.

A lion gift costs 29,999 coins which translates to over £400.

Why is The Lion So Expensive?

Not only is the lion one of the most expensive gifts, representing a considerable donation that a user wants to send to a creator, but it is also one of the most impressive.

The lion walks to the front of the screen and roars in a way which can be seen by the creator and other followers during the live stream.

NOTE: Gifts can only be sent and received during a live stream which is why these live segments and content forms are so important for creators.
