Here’s What Your Aries Friends Actually Want for Their Birthday
Aries season is here, and the last thing anyone needs is the wrath of the ram spurred by a sub-par present, so we gathered the best gifts for Aries to save you the guesswork. The bold and courageous sign knows exactly what they want, and they’re not afraid to go after it—but while they’re off conquering the world, you can gain some friendship (or lover) points by nailing the perfect birthday gift.
We asked Adama Sesay of Lilith Astrology what’s in store this Aries season, and it looks like things will feel all-around lighter as we make our foray into spring. That little pep in your step isn’t imaginary, and this surge of energy is particularly strong for the first sign of the zodiac. “The energy is not as heavy and challenging as we experienced in 2020. This is not only the start of Aries season, but the fresh spring equinox and new astrological cycle. When the sun returns to any sign, they can feel a major sense of vitality and energy—but this is especially true for fire signs,” she says. So don’t be afraid to get playful when gifting—think vivid colors, bold prints, and anything with optimistic, go-getter energy.
It’s also an ideal time to shoot your shot with the Aries you’ve been eyeing, as Venus, the planet of romance, joins the chat as well. “Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and aesthetics will also be in the sign of Aries from March 22 to April 14, giving them a need to express themselves through their appearance.” Meaning, any one-and-done beauty item like a bold red lipstick or a top-rated brow gel will come in handy for the energetic Aries who tends to stay on the move.
“They will be focused on shaking off the winter (or pandemic) blues, so color is the perfect uplifting gift. Bright fashion accessories or makeup can spark up any Aries’ mood and empower them all season long. Try a bright scarf or luxury lipstick in hot red, pink, or coral,” says Sesay. So whether you gift them a manifestation tool, some framed pop art, or a statement outfit accent, they’ll appreciate anything that helps lift the vibes for the fresh chapter ahead. (And really, wouldn’t we all?) Without further ado, shop winning gifts for Aries that will make the headstrong, determined, and adventurous sign wonder why they haven’t bought it for themselves already.
