Welcome to Libra season! Stylish, highly social Libras are known for their ease with people, willingness to listen to all sides of an argument and loyalty in relationships. Romantic Libras love to give and receive gifts, which makes them a lot of fun to shop for.
Annabel Gat, the author of “The Astrology of Love & Sex” and “The Moon Sign Guide,” and a senior astrologer at Vice, says, “Libras are easy to get along with and usually easy to spot because they are so stylish. They are social butterflies, but they are also very intellectual: Libra is an air sign, which means that community, communication and ideas are important to them. Libras love receiving gifts; they are usually not afraid to admit that they like to get hurt!”
With birthdays from September 23 to October 22, the sign of Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty. They will appreciate items that are aesthetically pleasing; Gat says it’s important to “think deeply about what her personal style is before you buy.” Ahead, we’ve rounded up 22 perfect gift ideas for the Libra in your life.
