Navigating life separated from loved ones has been one of the most challenging aspects of the pandemic. Giving up family vacations and weekend brunches with your besties has definitely taken its toll.
If you’re struggling to feel connected to your friends and family who live in different households, you should consider these long-distance touch lamps that are trending on TikTok. One video by user @jenny_loowho has more than 2.6 millions likes!
These lovely long-distance lamps, using the power of an open WiFi connection, don’t just illuminate your home. When you touch your lamp, the coordinating lamp in your friend’s house will light up the same color as yours. Your friend can then respond by touching their lamp, which will cause both lamps to light a new color. Cool, right?

These clever lamps are available on both Etsy and Uncommon Goods, and shoppers at both retailers rave about them.
“I bought one for my best friend and one for myself. Since then, I’ve bought for each of my siblings bc they live across the states. Now my 3-year-old and his cousins use it to say, “I love you,” wrote one happy customer.
Another shopper added, “This lamp is a great way to stay connected with our out of state grandma, especially in 2020. We get such joy when we watch it light up. It feels as if [the] family is nearby.”
Given how popular these long-distance touch lamps are on TikTok, you shouldn’t wait to purchase a pair for you and a loved one. It will be one of the best investments you make.
