The Aquarius Gift Box Guide to Match Their Independent Streak

Updated by Timothy Paradis

You’ve heard The Fifth Dimension Sing “The Age of Aquarius,” but what does it really mean? The eleventh star sign of the astrological year is Aquarius, born between January 19 and February 18. Represented as the water bearer, this zodiac sign is the reason the word "quirky" exists. Aquarians often feel like outcasts, but this is less about them being loners and more about them diligently trying to be weird!

If you have Aquarius friends, you already know all of this. Whether they're showing off their latest abstract masterpiece or using vocabulary that no one else bothers with, the Aquarius constellation represents a peculiar crew. While quirks are definitely a part of this astrological sign, as a light and flowing air sign, Aquarians are also intellectual and inventive innovators.

What makes a good gift for Aquarians?

Don't let their oddities throw you off when selecting an Aquarius gift. Believe it or not, they're pretty straightforward when it comes to gifting. Although they are represented by the water bearer, they are actually air signs, meaning they are cerebral and communicative. This also means they’re almost always first adopters and trendsetters, opting for gifts they'll use (but won't buy themselves) is the way to go! We've come up with this zodiac gift guide to point you toward some perfect gifts for your favorite Aquarians.
