The Ultimate Gift Guide For The Aquarius In Your Life

New year, new president, new astro season — Aquarius season is here, baby! Known as the water bearers of the zodiac, Aquarius types are marked by their "eccentricity, intellectualism, and humanitarianism," which can sometimes make them tricky to shop for; they'll want something practical, to be sure, but always, with an unexpected, unique twist.

"Aquarians are known for their offbeat style and love of technology," astrology expert Lisa Stardust tells Refinery29. "Much like how the humanitarian water-beater gives to others, keep in mind that friendships are extremely important to Aquariuses — your gift will have to make them feel seen by you." No pressure, right? Well, if you need some inspo, we've rounded up 13 gift ideas sure to delight your Aquarius friend on their birthday.
