Aquarius season is here, and you know what that means: you’re already behind on shopping for your favorite water-bearer’s birthday. (Not to be confused with water sign—Aquarius is an air sign, and you better not get it twisted.) But have no fear, I’m here to present you with a handy Aquarius gift guide. Hold your applause, please.
In case you need a refresher on what those born between January 21st and February 19th are all about, Aquarians are assertive, analytical, and independent. A triple-threat of strength! They’re also a bit stubborn, but they don’t sweat the small stuff, so they’ll only reveal that side of their personality if you push their buttons. They love to be with their friends, but beware when their social battery runs out. Aquarians are extremely interested in exploring, whether it be through trying new food or visiting a place they’ve never been before. Basically, they’re a balance of fierce/independent and easy-going/open-minded, which sounds confusing until you know them.
And that’s just one of the great thing about Aquarians—they’re pretty easy to shop for thanks to their many different moods. Lucky you! Here you’ll find fun tech toys, like a selfie light and an honestly adorable travel-sized personal fan, plus items that’ll help them relax, like a metallic bath bomb. Read on for 21 gift ideas Aquarius will love.

Metallic Bath Bomb
After a heavy dose of friend time, Aquarians hit a wall and need to be alone. When that moment comes, they’ll love the colorful relaxation of this metallic bath bomb. I’m willing to be you’ll be the first pal they call they’re ready for human contact again.

Help Aquarius plan their next big trip with a sophisticated passport case. This design has four pockets and two compartments (in other words, ton of sleek storage space), so you won’t have to worry about them getting trapped in Norway because they misplaced their second form of ID.
Because of this annoying thing called Real Life, Aquarius can’t always travel as often as they’d like. Tide them over until their next adventure with a book of maps.
