Gifts for Aquarius Women
Distinguished by an open mind and incisive intellect, Aquarians bring the same inquiring quality in their personal relationships too. People with this zodiac sign are born from 20th January to 19th February. So if you planning on a gift for an Aquarius woman, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Food for thought
The one trait of personality perhaps which makes an Aquarius stand out from the crowd is a keen, inquiring mind. They are interested in getting into the heart of everything and knowing how it works. An Aquarius woman is cultured and well-read and thus a good book is a gift that will rarely fail to make her happy. Look for titles ranging through culture, science, travel, social issues and a host of other genres that have to do with intellectual exploration and engagement. Steer clear of boring historicals or mushy romances since the Aquarius mind is more forward looking rather than interested in the past. Also the trite and conventional bore her which is why she may not be interested in the recent best sellers or what the whole world is reading now. This is not to say that they cannot give way to fantasy – in fact science fiction and futuristic novels are among the most favorite topics for individuals of this zodiac. Better still, gift your Aquarian woman a membership to a book club or a tickets to a lecture series by her favorite thinker, in fact an invite to a famous book-launch and an after-party would make for a fantastic gift for your Water-Bearer girlfriend. This is because Aquarians thrive in an atmosphere of intellectual exchange – reading and thinking to them are not solitary pursuits instead they revel in company of like-minded people where they can bounce off their ideas and explore various ideas and theories.
Help her look smart
An Aquarians good taste in cultural pursuits extends to appearances as well. She is most likely to be good looking or at least well groomed and fashionable. While she does not follow the dictates of the fashion runway, her individual style is highly becoming and appropriate to her personality. So when choosing a gift for your Aquarius girlfriend, take care to select clothing that is smart and proper to a special occasion. Aquarius women tend to wear streamlined, futuristic dresses and some will even be open to experimentation. It could be a jacket with a clean silhouette one day while the next day, it may be an evening gown with a plunging back that takes away your breath. Her best colors are bright fuchsia, cobalt blue or charcoal gray or anything else that brings out the free-spirited personality she is.
Give jewelry a unique touch
The same principle of originality marks an Aquarius woman’s taste in jewelry as well. To her it is not enough to be decked in something that is merely expensive or conventional– diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but it may not be what your spunky Water Bearer desires. Instead her taste in jewelry is unique and individual, even New Age, so you could do well by getting her a ring studded with a special crystal or a bead bracelet woven into an attractive African design. There is originality about the Aquarius woman and you would do well to keep this in mind when choosing a personal gift for her- from her hair down to the toes, she is always a bit different, on the cutting edge of what's new and hot.
Go gadget girl
One of the ways that the incisive forward looking mind of the Aquarian is expressed is in a deep interest in technology. So while many women shy away from hi-tech gifts dismissing them as “guy stuff”, your Aquarius woman will be only too happy to share your thrill at the launch of the newest version of i-Pad and gladly engage in a spirited debate on the comparative merits and drawbacks of various models. So when choosing a gift for her, by all means explore hi-tech gadgets like the newest GPS system to go with her car or a digital camera that will further her interest in photography. If on the other hand you are looking for something more personal to gift within the ambit of technology, how about a beeper with voice mail capability – this will not only satisfy her desire to remain connected with friends but best of all allow you to leave her
intimate love messages.
Do something unusual
Driven by a need for originality in lifestyle and outlook, the Aquarius woman is open to enjoying any kind of experience that is spontaneous and most importantly different from the run-of-mill date activities. So while other couples go bowling or for a movie on dates, look for unique and creative experiences you can treat her too on her special day. If she is fond of wild-life, take her on a bird-watching tour or go swimming with dolphins at an aquatic resort. Or take her along on a 'bugavan' - many big cities have car clubs which comprise of owners or sometimes even enthusiasts of a certain kind of vehicle like a Beetle, Mini Cooper or PT Cruiser. Many of these car clubs arrange for fun caravans where the owners get together on a Sunday morning and drive around a historical town or places of interest. Your Aquarius partner will not only be thrilled at all the adventure but glad that you thought up of something so different.
Cater to her humanitarian interests
The Symbol of the Aquarius is the Water-Bearer and quite appropriately too, considering that people of this sign are eager to bestow the gifts of new thoughts and ideas on humanity. They are fair-minded and deeply care about human progress and welfare. Thus socially-conscious, environmentally-friendly oriented gifts would make great gift options for your Aquarius woman. Anything from a nice-looking recycled coffee table, to a Greenpeace sweatshirt, to a donation in her name, would please her inordinately. In fact a hugely fulfilling way to celebrate a special occasion for her could be to volunteer jointly at some community service. It could be at a school for underprivileged children with special needs, at an association working for the environment or at an animal shelter – any cause that you both believe in. Your time and effort spent here will not only benefit others but leave your Aquarius woman with a deep sense of satisfaction at having made a difference – in however a small way.
