Libras are the kind of loyal, ride-or-die friends we all need more of in our circles. They’re excellent listeners, peacekeepers, and romantics at heart. Libras are also known to be extremely relationship-oriented, meaning they value their friends and family above all else. Our Libra friends make being fair and kind to everyone look easy, and just as the Libra lady is devoted to helping others, we too should be devoted to helping her have the best birthday possible.
According to our resident astrologer, Lisa Stardust, people with birthdays that fall within this seventh sign of the zodiac are loving, balanced, and artistic, and they are known to enjoy the finer things in life when it comes to gifts. “They don’t skimp on luxury brands when it comes to the essentials for themselves,” she says. “They also love stylish gifts to add to their collection.” So if you’re looking for the perfect gift to show your Libra friend just how much you care, we rounded up a few ideas worthy of these likable social butterflies.
Luxury skin care
As Stardust mentioned, Libras love to indulge in a little luxury. Because of this, she explains that your Libra friend will appreciate skincare items, "because they will boost their glow and vitality." Try this trendy hydrating spray from Glossier. It soothes stressed skin with aloe and rosewater and has a lightly floral scent that Libras will appreciate.
Romantic makeup palette
Stardust recommends nabbing some "soft, romantic makeup for the Venusian babe" that will help her tap into her feminine side. This palette features gorgeous shades of soft nudes, mauves, and light pinks, so she can rock a perfect "soft girl" makeup look.
From doing errands to going to work, your "Libra friends will adore a cute bag to carry around and [help] show off their fashion sense," says Stardust. This one is reversible, meaning it's versatile enough to keep up with Libra's ever-changing social calendar.
Sweet hair accessories
"Libra rules the hair," says Stardust, so gifting them some pretty hair accessories is a surefire way to give them something they'll love. These pearl hair clips are both feminine and fashionable, just like Libra's signature style.
Fun accent pillow
Since Libras are ruled by planet Venus, the planet of beauty, they crave a stylish and elegant home. Because of this, Stardust recommends gifting them a fun accent pillow to add a little glam to their space. Bonus points for choosing one like this, as blue and white hues are known to be Libra's lucky colors.
Libras are the purest romantics at heart, so they love a scent that will draw in potential lovers. According to Stardust, "Libras crave clean, rosy-scented perfume for their airy senses and palate." This one by Philosophy was inspired by just that: the delicate scent of pink rose petals opening at first bloom. Libras will swoon.
"Libras are art lovers," according to Stardust, so they'll flip over a poster of their favorite artwork. You can't go wrong with this ethereal painting by Vincent Van Gogh.
"As the sign of love and romance, a Libra will most appreciate a book on understanding relationships better," says Stardust. This book breaks down both understanding and improving all relationships in life—based on astrology, of course.
October-born Libras will appreciate their month's birthstone in these dainty rings. Since their style can be categorized as effortlessly feminine, these will fit perfectly with their everyday look.
"A matching outfit screams Libra because of its trendy simplicity and balance," says Stardust. And since Libras are drawn to serene colors and creamy neutrals, this cool-toned pastel set will become a staple in their wardrobe.
