Birthday gifts can be tough. Finding that perfect gift for the important person in your life, whether that is your partner, your parent, your child, or a friend, brings you just as much (if not more) joy than getting gifts yourself. That doesn’t mean the search for that gift isn’t frustrating and stressful, though… but it doesn’t have to be!
Astrological birthday gifts can be just the thing for anyone who is either just getting into astrology or who knows their chart inside and out. We have advice for anyone seeking a little more guidance into finding the right astrology-based birthday gifts for that special someone.
A Full Natal Chart
The best and most thorough astrology birthday gift that you can give anyone in your life who wants to know more about themselves is the gift of a full natal chart. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a natal chart (sometimes referred to as a birth chart), here’s the general idea: it is an in-depth snapshot of exactly where the sun, moon, planets, and other important astral bodies were at the exact moment that you were born.
Armed with this information (which requires that you know not only your giftee’s date of birth but also what time they were born), a professional astrologer can come up with an eerily accurate snapshot of their personality… from the way they communicate to how they process emotions, and even the type of person they may be attracted to. It can also give hints to what may be helpful in the future, like suggestions of career options or romantic partners.
Natal charts make especially great gifts for people who are just starting to dip their toes into the astrological world because compiling all of that information yourself and interpreting it accurately can prove overwhelming for many.
There are plenty of different ways to give a natal chart as a birthday gift. One nice way is in book form because it is full of not only basic interpretations of where everything was when your giftee was born but also in-depth insights. Plus, aesthetically pleasing design can integrate into any space.
The world is full of conflict and stress, no matter who you are and what you do. Why not give the gift of a little peace and contentment? A loving reminder that your loved one needs to take a step back and set time aside for self-care can be a great kindness. There are plenty of different ways that you can accomplish this, from spa gift certificates to bath bombs. However, if you’re looking for a birthday gift that keeps their love for astrology in mind, consider looking into one of the different personalized, astrological tea blends on the market.
We love these teas because they are customized with your giftee’s specific astrological sign in mind. Each company takes a slightly different approach but, overall, the idea really is the same. Each starts with a tea base (green, black, oolong, etc.) and then adds in flavors and spices that are correlated with each astrological sign in some way.
One of the wonderful things about giving tea is the ability to share. A conversation over sipped tea is a wonderful way for you and your friend to bond. Plus, we could definitely all use a little bit more push to focus on taking care of ourselves. Tea is great for both the body and the mind. Consider it the gift that really does keep on giving, and one you can enjoy together!
Who doesn’t love getting jewelry as one of their birthday gifts? Throughout human history, the gift of jewelry has been reserved for those we hold high in esteem and love. It makes the receiver feel incredibly important. And what better way to show your giftee that you understand, value, and appreciate them than by giving the gift of jewelry that features their astrological sign?
The best part about giving astrological jewelry is that there are so many options out there that you can definitely find something that fits your giftee perfectly. They’re not into gold? Buy silver or platinum. They don’t like gemstones? There are plenty of simple pieces that are still stunning but without the extra bling. Dainty or chunky jewelry? The options are endless.
Check out some simple but stunning constellation necklaces. Jewelry is endlessly personalizable and always shocks and surprises people. While it’s really never about how much money you’ve spent on a gift and much more about the time and thought you put behind it, astrological jewelry can be a little bit of both… but luckily, with the wide range of options, you won’t have to spend much to make a big impact.
If you’ve looked everywhere and you really feel like you’re out of ideas, there really isn’t a more simple but appreciated gift than a candle. Candles literally go with any occasion--not just birthdays but housewarmings, engagements, wedding anniversaries, new jobs, and more. Everyone appreciates a gift that makes their home or their office smell great, and if you can do that while also focusing on their love for astrology, even better!
Candles come in an endless amount of colors, shapes, sizes, and scents. If you’re unsure where to start, a good idea might be to start with these candles. Each candle is made specifically for the day and month of your giftee’s birth. This is an especially perfect gift if you’re unsure about what time your friend was born.
Every candle is made not only with the astrological sign associated with that specific day in mind but also taking into account numerology and tarot to create the perfect scent to complement any personality. Plus, they make great focal points for a mantle, entertainment center, or desk! They’ll think of you every single time they light it, which, with a burning time of between 60 - 80 hours, can amount to many hours of peaceful relaxation.
Astrological Home Goods
We’ve all spent a lot more time at home over the past year than we had previously. Our homes have become not only our castles but also our offices, daycares, gyms, and five-star dining experiences. That’s why giving gifts that can be used or displayed around the home is another excellent idea when you’re searching for the ideal birthday gift.
Also, just like astrological jewelry, home goods are available in an infinite amount of different styles and categories. They can fit into any home decor mood and are available for every single room of the house. Get your special birthday person a personalized wine mug with their astrological sign and constellation on it (along with a bottle of wine).
Or buy them a tapestry or piece of customized constellation wall art to hang in their bedroom or living room. Bring some light to your friend’s walls and empty spaces; give them a birthday gift with their personality in mind that will also brighten up and personalize their dwelling.
A Personalized Card
No matter which of the birthday gifts you choose to go with, make sure that you include a personalized birthday card to go along with it. Great, exciting gifts are fun to unwrap, but they can be hollow if the sentiment behind them isn’t the same. When you take the time to write down your feelings on a card, you’re giving them the extra (and, some would argue, most important) gift of really being able to understand how important they are to you.
In a world where so many of us can be preoccupied with the day-to-day routines of work, school, family, home, we forget to take the time out to tell the people in our lives how much we love them and how essential they are to our happiness. It doesn’t have to be wordy or elaborate, but a heartfelt and handwritten thought can really mean everything to people without being explicitly added to their birthday lists. For an added touch of sentimentality, print out your favorite picture of the two of you. Reveling happy memories can significantly increase our joy.
Birthdays With Love
When choosing the perfect astrological birthday gifts for the special person in your life, always make sure to pick from the heart. The right gift doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or be huge to be heartfelt and personalized. In the end, it really is the thought that counts, and what says that you love, honor, and understand a person more than proving you know their astrological sign?
If you’re looking for an astrological gift for any occasion, allow us at Birthdate Co. to lend a hand. Understanding ourselves and our place in the universe is a wonderful thing to enjoy between friends and family.
