Finally, you’ll please your gadget-loving Aquarius brother, your epicurean Taurus best friend, and everyone in between. Get a pen and notepad ready, and read on for great gift ideas based on the Zodiac signs.
Fiery Aries isn’t interested in practical gifts or those requiring lots of time to enjoy. Steer clear of items like presidential biographies, household appliances and jigsaw puzzles — this sign just doesn’t have the patience or interest needed to delve into such things. Instead, appeal to the Ram’s on-the-go lifestyle, that Aries yen for instant gratification, or this sign’s love of thrills, physical activity and any type of competition.
Great gifts for Aries: Tickets to sports events or music festivals; new trail-running shoes; a gift certificate for boxing, boot camp or salsa dancing lessons; a new golf club; state-of-the-art sunglasses; a bag of espresso beans and a French Press coffee maker.
