With the new, fresh energy of the Spring Equinox comes the dawn of Aries season. Known for their fiery, aggressive, and bold dispositions, Aries aren’t likely to demurely accept subpar gifts. Lucky for you, we’ve got a cheat sheet. Read on for bold and bright presents that will bolster the spirit of the Aries you love – and maybe a few to help mellow out their fits of passion, too.
Heat Up Their Workout Game – And Wardrobe, from $42
Aries are known for their competitive, active spirit. Stoke their trademark fire with a sleek, red-hot or statement-making lime green piece from Beyond Yoga in the brand’s signature so-soft-you’ll-never-take-it-off Spacedye fabric (from $58). Check out Girlfriend Collective’s cult-favorite Compressive collection (from $42) and Flame colorway for pieces your Aries can excel in – this Fire sign loves a challenge, and is likely too competitive about their athletic performance and workout wear in any group fitness setting (yes, even a yoga class).
Gift them the On-The-Go Kit from Bala Bangles ($105) to satisfy their multi-tasking, overachieving tendencies. Now they’ll be able to fit in some resistance training at any given moment, whether they’re pacing around their house on a call or amping up an already-challenging workout session.
For The Skincare Savant: A Sleek Gua Sha Toolkit, $80
While they might not be inclined to treat themselves to extraneous skincare or beauty purchases, an Aries is bound to geek out over a new tool that promises to simplify and optimize their skincare (and self-care) routine. Send them the OG Kit ($80) from Sacheu Beauty, which includes a gua sha, dual-ended facial roller, and the brand’s SLICK SKIN serum designed to enhance facial massage while restoring the skin barrier. A bonus? This gift will help slow down and relax an Aries’ daily ritual – something this go-getting Fire sign will thank you and love you for.
The Doctor Is In: Elevate Their Herbal Arsenal, from $36
We’ve already estabished that most Aries love optimization and efficiency. Why not upgrade their daily mood and productivity with some herbal helpers? For the Aries whose frenetic energy doesn’t do well with coffee, gift Wooden Spoon Herbs’ best-selling Herbal Coffee ($38), a blend of microbiome-friendly and naturally invigorating herbs that (sincerely) tastes better than your average cup of joe. Depending on their particular disposition, select from thoughtfully formulated tinctures to enhance your Aries’ daily mood – I’ve got a feeling they could benefit from Rose-Colored Glasses or Head Helper ($36).
For an Aries who’s more likely to enjoy a bite-sized botanical best friend, gift herbalist Rachelle Robinett’s box set of HRBLS, blended with plants and adaptogens that ease nerves, support energy and endurance, and promote digestive health ($60).
Cool Their Fire And Earn Their Love Forever, from $20
More often than not, the best gift you can give your Aries is some good old-fashioned relaxation. If you can soothe their reactive tempers or slight predisposition for confrontation, you’ll earn a spot in their big, loyal hearts. For a newbie to the CBD game, gift The Flight ($20) from Feals, or the brand’s new fast-acting CBD Mints ($50) for a quick dose of calm they can take anywhere.
To complete their wind-down toolkit, gift OSEA’s Ultra-Hydrating Duo ($110) or Vagus Nerve Duo ($72), both of which will balance Aries’ fiery instincts with water-based, cooling skincare and essential oil superheroes designed to promote relaxation.
Keep It Spicy, from $18.99
Sure, an Aries will love some soothing, calming skincare and herbal remedies that they wouldn’t otherwise think to buy on their own. But they’ll always be thrilled by a gift that helps them to spice things up. Send them Fly By Jing’s wildly popular suite of products with the Lucky 88 Spice Lovers bundle ($88), featuring the brand’s addictive and supercharged collection of sauces and spices.
For the Aries that prefers streamlined simplicity, send All Day’s Spice Force ($18.99), a collection of three seasoning blends formulated to bring bold and complex flavor to every meal (or snack).
Something Red Hot – And Sparkly, from $108
No Aries – or any sign, for that matter – will turn down a shiny object. This sign is incredibly fortunate in that the predominant birthstone is…a diamond. You might want to splurge a little on this one! DTC fine jewelry brand Noémie just launched its newest Petite Diamond Stack Ring collection, featuring three diamond center cuts and conflict-free diamonds (from $720). Suddenly wishing I were born in April.
If you’re looking for a more affordable option, check out LEEADA’s beautiful pieces – I’m a fan of the Catena Gemstone necklace ($108), which is perfect for layering and shines bright with real rubies.
Get to gifting – and we’ll meet you back here next month to talk all things Taurean.
