When you’re searching for birthday gift ideas and have no clue what to get a loved one, let their zodiac sign lead the way. You can easily find a gift that celebrates a specific zodiac sign – from jewelry (such as earrings and pendants) to coffee mugs. Below you will learn a few common characteristics associated with Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer that could help you choose a suitable gift:
Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 18)
Aquarians tend to have an eccentric side that can make gift giving pretty fun. It’s advised to choose presents that speak to their individual quirks. They also tend to have an eco-friendly mindset, which creates endless gift ideas. Look for vintage clothing or recycled handmade jewelry. Electronic gadgets are also a hit with Aquarians. A real bonus is when the gadget relates to travel, for example, this Digital Luggage Scale is a lifesaver! It helps avoid overweight baggage fees at the airport. Another nice gadget is the Anker® Portable External Battery USB Charger for smartphones and tablets which is a great power resource to keep the USB recharged devices operating while traveling.
Gifts that involve fantasy and creativity are ideal for those born under the zodiac sign of Pisces. Because of this, gift giving could come in the form of a fantasy novel, video game, book of poetry, or tickets to a musical. Water plays an important role in the life of this sign. Perhaps a birthday trip to an aquarium or snorkeling adventure would make the perfect gift. Take a dinner cruise on a boat. For the nature-loving Pisces, dress up their home with a tropical plant like the Hinterland Trading Air Plant Tillandsia Bromeliads Kit Teardrop Terrarium.
Aries (March 21–Apr 19)
This fun-loving sign is often impulsive and fearless. Those born under Aries tend to like being #1, making personalized gifts ideal for this zodiac sign. Treat an Aries birthday boy or girl to an activity that encourages them to do something new and daring, such as bungee jumping, skydiving, or rock climbing. The sporty Aries will enjoy tickets to their favorite team or themed clothing.
The Taurean is practical yet has a sensual side that likes to stay within their comfort zone. Treat a loved one to a gourmet night of dining or a surprise party at a cozy jazz lounge. Taureans are often collectors, so adding to their treasure trove of items will certainly put a smile on his or her face. Think of a personalized money clip for the finance-minded Taurean. Gift ideas also include a cashmere sweater, velvet evening dress, or Egyptian cotton bedding.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Full of energy, the Gemini sign is associated with talkative, personable, knowledgeable individuals. Because of this, consider gifting a magazine subscription they wouldn’t normally splurge on. Technology gifts are a real winner with Geminis, who often have their eye on the latest cell phone, laptop or other method of communication. With an appreciation for variety, you may choose a handful of small gestures instead of one large gift.
Cancers tend to enjoy sticking with tradition and being surrounded by family. Plan a birthday party with close relatives and friends – making sure to take plenty of snapshots for the photo album. Choose gifts with sentimental value for Cancers, such as scrapbooks or a personalized photo frame. For the homebody, pair a candlelight dinner with a gourmet apple pie. Other gift ideas include a vacuum cleaner, linen set, or kitchen appliance (like the Keurig K60/K65 Single Serve Coffee Maker).
