It’s Aries season! If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or the special wild Aries in your life, we have you covered! 

Aries are creative and passionate creatures and they love when their friends and loved ones match their energy. Your Aries may be athletic and love comfortable athletic and simple clothes. Maybe they’re looking for a new craft to work out their never-ending energy. 

We have so many great options that we put together a list of unique gifts for all the Aries out there! 

What Type of Sign is an Aries

The youngest sign in the zodiac, those born from March 21st to April 19th are lucky enough to be Aries! Symbolized by a ram with large curling horns, Aries are known for charging headfirst into everything in their lives: relationships, hobbies, and work. 

Associated with the element of fire, Aries have a wild, uncontrollable nature that can warm or burn you. Behavior that some see as enthusiastic and passionate can be misinterpreted as impulsive and impatient. Aries sometimes have to learn life lessons the hard way due to their think-now-ask-questions later mindset. 

Fire sign trades, which also include Leo and Sagittarius, are commonly identified as: 

  • Feisty 
  • Brave 
  • Passionate
  • Independent 
  • Creative 
  • Short-Tempered 
  • Spontaneous 
  • Intense 

Ruled by the planet Mars, which is named after the Roman god of war, Aries are often seen as the most dramatic and aggressive sign. However, this also makes Aries the ultimate ally - they will passionately fight for those they love and what they believe in and will not quit! 

What Are The Characteristics of Aries?

Sometimes called the baby of the zodiac, Aries are often seen as the feisty, spontaneous, hyper-active little sibling. Aries have a deeply ingrained passion for everything they do and have a great dislike of inactivity. Their overflowing energy can be worked out through sports, art, theater, or other physical or mentally stimulating activities. 

Whatever an Aries is up to, it has to be fast-paced as patience isn’t their strong suit. Group activities that require a leader would be the perfect role for an Aries. While they can lead a team with confidence and courage, they have also been known to sometimes rush activities and step on a few toes along the way. Or maybe a headbutt would be more fitting.

Best Gifts for an Aries

Alright, now that you have the scoop, you still may need a little help finding a unique gift for an Aries. Don’t worry, we have you covered because we’re going to share some of our favorite ideas! With the whirlwind that is the Aries, it can sometimes be stressful to find the perfect gift! 

First, let’s look at the perfect color palette for Aries, which includes their birthstones! This info may help you out more than you think. 

The Aries Color Palette 

Aries are pretty straightforward, and so are their palette and birthstones. For the gorgeous Aries in your life, you’ll want to focus on: 

  • Bright and fiery (reds, oranges, yellows) 
  • Deep and bold (violet, ruby, black, maroon) 
  • Golden umbers (deep browns, tans, golds) 

Fiery and passionate colors are always a must, but stay away from any colors associated with cool-tones or water. Fire and water don’t mix very well after all. Stick with colors that remind you of a blazing wildfire or a courageous mountain. These colors help keep them in a creative and courageous mindset. 

Aries Birthstones 

With the zodiac, each sign is associated with multiple stones. Aries are associated with the following birthstones: 

  • Bloodstone
  • Topaz
  • Jasper

Bloodstones were once used by warriors headed into battle and are thought to bring protection and physical strength. Aries may be in need of bloodstone to boost their courage, but also give them mental clarity to fight their battles. 

Topaz, a lucky stone that glimmers like golden fire, can keep you connected with your creative flow. Who doesn’t need a bit of luck and creative energy? This glimmering golden stone can help your Aries focus their energy on meaningful creative pursuits. 

Just looking at jasper can evoke thoughts of fire and warmth- it almost looks like the surface of Mars. This stone can bring a little bit of tranquility and grounding to your Aries, which they do need from time to time. Jasper is easy to find and the richness of its colors can bring joy to every sign! 

If you choose to go with a birthstone gift, get something durable and that is not easy to drop or misplace. Maybe a piece of jewelry or even artwork made from their birthstones would be a much appreciated gift!
