As the end of January brings us tempting, teasing previews of Spring mixed in with the remaining frigid Winter days, curious Aquarius season settles in around us from January 21-February 19th. Much like their Air Sign sisters, you can always count on an Aquarius to bring an interesting perspective to the table. In a friend group, the Aquarius will often stand out as the resident weirdo - but only in all the best ways! We’ve compiled the ultimate guide to Cold Gold gifts for Aquarius sun signs - read on to learn more about our strange but oh-so-lovable Aquarian friends, some of their most famous representatives, and (most importantly) the gifts they’ll treasure long after their upcoming birthday.
The “typical“ Aquarius is first of all, hardly typical. They are often described as “out there,“ strange, creative, visionary, candid, social, analytical, humanitarian, inventive, a little detached, but typically friendly. They thrive in a dreamy soft color scheme of blues, whites, pinks, and lilac, to match the dream world inside their heads. Aquarians are not known for putting up a front, shying away from a project (though they *will* procrastinate), or for going along with the crowd for the sake of fitting in. Living proof that a little weirdness can be a good thing, Aquarians are famously open-minded, and they have that signature air sign habit of deep thinking. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if they’re lost in thought or lost in space, but, when called, the Aquarius always comes back to Earth with something profound to say. Aquarians are big ideas people and not always big feelings people - their dedication to having ideas and seeing them through takes a great deal of their focus before they drift off to design their next big plan, sometimes leaving them oblivious to how anyone else feels about any of it. Luckily for them, however, they do pretty well on their own and don’t fear independence. Some famous Aquarians include Oprah Winfrey, Harry Styles, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Elizabeth Olsen, and The Weeknd. A collection of big dreamers, but *also* big do-ers. If you needed to pull off something really big - an epic party, a humanitarian fundraiser, a spectacle of any kind, these famous Aquarians would be the dream team.
Our first pick for Aquarius birthday gifts is for the spacey, social butterfly Aquarius. You’ll find these types asking about your own Zodiac chart within the first few moments of being introduced, or they might be looking at you a little glazed over because while you’re talking about the weather, they’re thinking about the UFO sightings podcast they should be working on. The daydreamy nature of these sun signs will pair perfectly with a bold, shimmering set of the Point Move earrings in metallic pink. They’re a perfect conversation piece - an absolute requirement for the ideal Aquarius accessory - and their funky, disco-inspired star shape recalls the Aquarian’s love for the cosmos. Unrelated, do you think we can convince Harry Styles to pierce his ears for a pair of these??
With our next pick for perfect Aquarius gifts, we take inspiration from the symbol of Aquarius. The Water Bearer represents the giving of water and food for the soul to the world, the water representing a fresh clean start after the washing away of the past, and the bearer herself representing the Aquarian’s humanitarian nature. The kind, open-hearted, and creative Aquarius would love a gift reminiscent of the important features of their sign. The Light Trace leather earrings in any shade of blue will suit your favorite Water Bearer, and given more than one pair, they’ll delight in being able to mix and match their own custom color pair with a mismatched earring in each ear. We love the Light Trace in Matisse blue and periwinkle blue paired together for a cool, water toned vibe, or try the navy and turquoise together for a moody, darker version of the watery look. The shape of the light trace earrings even imitates the Aquarius glyph, representative of the water that pours from their vessel.
Oh those Air signs - such big thinkers with big ideas, but they could always use a hand in the realm of their organizational efforts. Next on our list of gifts for the Aquarius in your life is a coordinating belt bag and keychain combo in shades of blue leather. Your Aquarian pal is far too busy bettering the world and chasing their next daydream to be bothered with remembering their phone, keys, and wallet on the way out the door. Make it easy for them with this beautiful and handy co-ord set in a dreamy sky blue hue befitting of any Aquarius.
Last but certainly not least, our Aquarius birthday gift pick for the quiet, laid back, scheming-and-dreaming Aquarius: you can’t go wrong with a pair of amethyst studio studs. Lightweight and easy to wear, but with the detail and visual impact of a big & funky piece, they won’t impede your air sign pal when they hit the ground running on their next big project. The depths of crystal-imitating translucent clay will mesmerize anyone who gazes upon them in much the way their Aquarius wearer does. Are you daydreaming of Alicia Keys sitting at her piano, in the studio, wearing studio studs? We might be.
