Gifts as fun, lively and out-of-the-box as your favorite Aquarius!
The Aquarius friend can be an enigma. After all, Aquarius is a water bearer in the stars, but according to astrologists, it’s an air sign. It makes sense then that some famous Aquarians include Virginia Woolf, Yoko Ono and Oprah Winfrey. Aquarius men and women are both fiercely intelligent and loyal, but do not suffer fools. They aren’t ones for small talk, but they enjoy deep conversations about politics, religion and humanitarian issues.
The Aquarius in your life might also be a little high-strung and dramatic but that’s just their passion for life and the important things. They feel deeply, but they don’t always express it. And from our experience with an Aquarian mother and sibling, they are also extremely funny and appreciate a good laugh...but it’s got to be smart humor, nothing too base or offensive for Aquarians.
Because they are such strong personalities, finding the perfect gift for the Aquarian in your life can be a struggle, so we’ve assembled a few gifts we think are perfect for this cozy Aquarius season.
