Fall is in the air and Libra season has officially begun. From September 23 through October 23 you’ll be celebrating the romantic idealist that is Libra. Known for being a peacemaker who is capable of seeing all sides of a situation, this air sign strives for fairness in all things. They love beauty and give love generously, but have trouble making decisions.
Don’t fall into Libra’s indecisive ways when shopping for their birthday gift though. Gifts are important and meaningful to this sign. To cut out some of the confusion, use our Libra gift guide to find the perfect present for this beloved charmer.
Represented by the symbol of scales, Libras are all about achieving balance, justice, and harmony. This sign is also characterized by a natural tendency to become a caregiver for those around them. Give your favorite Libra a gift that allows them to turn inward and take care of themselves. Anatomically, this air sign rules the skin, so balancing beauty products will make great gifts for Libras.
Pick up a balancing shampoo formulated with wheat germ oil and pansy extract to keep Libra’s locks looking fresh. A luxury powder cleanser or cult favorite, multipurpose beauty oil will satisfy their taste for the finer things in life. A rich, fragrant, skin-balancing Italian aftershave will appeal to the Libra man with a detailed self-care ritual.

Libras are known for being romantic, flirtatious dreamers. Roses are the flower associated with this wildly affectionate sign and Libra’s will appreciate gifts that play into this theme. Soft, charming shades of pastel pink and green are the colors that dominate their aesthetic. When shopping for Libra’s, think about fairytale-inspired color schemes and grand gifts that express love.
A French-made fragrance, like A La Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, that highlights the rose at its most feminine will be a beloved gift for Libras. A more aggressive play on the rose scent can be found in Etat Libre d’Orange’s You Or Someone Like You. It’s a much more rich, green version of a traditional, soft rose scent. A rose gold safety razor will look chic and understated on a vanity or in a Dopp kit. Opt for a rose quartz gua sha tool for the Libra looking to add opulence to their skin care routine.

Known for their conflict-averse personalities, Libra’s prefer to be in calm environments and do not react well to chaos. They appreciate beautiful design and have expensive taste, so well- made home decor will surely impress them. Libra prioritizes making their home as comfortable as possible, so anything that makes them feel safe, secure, and relaxed makes a great gift.
A rosemary and eucalyptus room spray will add a calming touch to any Libra’s home. A unique aromatic diffuser, like the concrete bowl from Photogenics + Co., will look sleek and stylish on their coffee table. A luxury candle in a soothing scent, like Diptyque’s Choisya, will be cherished and appreciated. Pick up a comforting fall fragrance for your favorite air sign like 1899 by Histoires de Parfums.
