When considering gifts for the Aries in your life—folks whose birthday falls between March 21 and April 19—keep in mind that they've likely already decided on the perfect gift for themselves first. In fact, "first" is the very word that best defines Aries, the sign that kicks off the astrological year. "They're willing to go first and have the confidence to pull something off—especially if it's a very strange trend," says Alex Caiola, psychic, astrologer, and founder of spiritual-wellness platform High Priestess of Brooklyn. "They're just perfect at that."

A cardinal fire sign, Aries also dares to live life bombastically, so planning a hip, COVID-19-safe outing might make their day. "The thing that's going to come in common with all the fire signs is that they're very experiential and appreciate the experiential gifts," says Caiola. "But with Aries, it needs to be the newest-hottest [experience]." With that in mind, consider checking out offerings from AirBnb Experiences, but do be sure to still follow your beloved ram's lead for what they want to do. Because while Aries may love giving surprises, they don't necessarily love getting surprised; they much prefer to be in control.

Beyond those general guidelines on gifts for an Aries, you might also consider pursuing items that appeal to a ram's street-style aesthetic and tendency toward loud looks (think bright reds, black leather, statement purples, and the occasional lime green).

Caiola also points out that using a person's Venus sign can also be helpful for further understanding what someone might like. Your Venus is reflective of what you enjoy visually or what gives you joy. (To learn their Venus sign, run their birth date, time, and location in an online generator like this one.)

Below, find 7 gifts for an Aries, the zodiac wheel's natural-born trendsetter

1. Three Ships Soothe Rosehip Vitamin C Clay Mask, $18

An issue that can accompany being hotheaded is that your sparks of rage may lead to a flush. "Aries rules the the head and face," says Caiola. "So right off the bat, I think facials are a really great option for them."

To gift an at-home DIY option, consider a soothing face mask. This rosehip-infused French pink clay formula will help calm the skin and banish blemishes.

2. TASTE Damn Bookle Stitch Oversized Sweatshirt Red, $59

Caiola points out that Aries has a "larger than life" persona, and that comes across in what they wear. When shopping for a ram, think "oversized." Oversized bomber jackets, oversized sweatshirts that can double as dresses, oversized, oversized, oversized. They want to maximize their big personality with a bold appearance, so find them clothes to drown in, Billie Eilish-style (FWIW, Caiola marks Sagittarius Eilish as a solid fashion icon for Aries peeps).

3. Fenty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color, $25

Caiola also vouches that Rihanna, who has an Aries Venus sign, is practically the poster child for Aries style. Stocking up on anything Fenty is a solid move since anything Rihanna touches screams "BOLD," with an added edge of innovation built in. Even something like a classically flattering Mars-red lip paint will seem fresh if its Fenty.

4. Levi's Faux Leather Moto Jacket, $88

Relatedly, I saw Rihanna wearing a green leather jacket, so I'm suggesting this green faux leather jacket. Leather and vegan leather materials are an important part of an Aries style palette.

5. Carbon38 Regular Rise Full-Length Legging in Takara Shine, $98

These liquid-looking full-length leggings offer a "rock star at the gym" vibe, which is totally what you should be going for. After all, Aries is a child of Mars, the most physical-oriented planet.

Aries wants the latest and greatest when it comes to cool kicks. The Nike Air Max 90 is a great newer release—and check out those unapologetic touches of neon green.

7. LookOptic Sun Liam, $88

Finally, consider some serious shades for your Aries friend. Not only because a signature pair of glasses always makes a statement, but because these stars burn so bright, even they themselves can't handle the glare sometimes.
