set the ENV variable to be:

TMPDIR=~/tmp

In looking at my env, it shows:

TMPDIR=/tmp

I have not tested it so YMMV.
nope that doesn't work for me :(
You should need to re-login after the change. Obviusly, you need to do
that change in some file that is used by the login process.
I tried changing the environment on shell and tested it and it didn't work.
To change the environment on login, where (which file) do make the
environment change ?
~/.bashrc

TMPDIR=~/tmp
export TMPDIR

Put this in /etc/bash.bashrc.local and it will work for all users.
When this file doesn't exists: touch /etc/bash.bashrc.local
