Gift Options by Natal Venus in the Signs & Houses:
This Venus sign would love anything that allows them to be active, so a gym membership, bicycle, or sporting equipment could work. Sports is often something this position loves, so get them something of their favorite team. Aries rules the head, so you can think about things for the head: hats, hair accessories, luxurious facial products, earrings. This sign is ruled by the color red, so you can try clothing, an accessory, or office product in a vibrant red.
This Venus sign loves comfort and indulgence, so you pretty much can’t go wrong with food. Find out what their favorite is and hunt down something special, gourmet, a true delicacy. If you’re not sure what, some specialty chocolate from a chocolatier or a bottle of fine vintage wine should do the trick. This Venus sign can also love spa gifts, musical gifts, perfume/cologne, or anything that engages their senses in a fabulous way.
This Venus sign is the sign of the mind, so anything that can engage their mind is usually a winner. Find out their favorite author or genre and get them some books or a gift card to a bookstore, or give them a beautiful pen and journal so they can do some writing of their own. They also appreciate gadgetry, so you can opt for the latest piece of tech that will keep them occupied. They also love learning, so give them a way to learn something new.
This Venus sign loves the home, so give them something that they can use to spruce up their home, like a painting, old photograph, vase, or clock. They’re also sentimental, so anything that conjures up an old memory would be great for them as well. They tend to be more traditional, so try to avoid anything really different or modern. Cookbooks can go over well with them, as well as something with a story.
This Venus sign loves luxury and drama, so give them something expensive, even gaudy, and they’ll eat it up. Tickets to a play or musical, a night out at the most expensive restaurant in town, or even their favorite movie can do. Leo is the sign of the inner child, so find out what was their favorite toy as a kid and give it to them - they’ll adore you for that. Leo also rules your hobbies, so you can find out what their hobbies are and give them something appropriate for them.
This Venus sign is super organized and loves to be productive, so give them something to help with that. Something for the office, for their desk, for their computer, or exceptionally practical can work. Don’t go for anything too extravagant with this Venus sign - they might just give it back to you! They appreciate gifts that will serve a purpose in their life, so even something like a kitchen appliance or bathroom accessory would do.
This Venus sign has great taste, so whatever you get them should be classy and stylish. They love looking good, so some designer clothes or accessories or jewelry could work. They also love music, so get them concert tickets or take them to the symphony. They enjoy being in beautiful surroundings, so you can give them something gorgeous for their home or office, especially something artistic or a piece of art.
This Venus sign loves a good mystery, so try giving them something that will allow them to solve a puzzle - maybe even an actual puzzle! They’re attracted to the darker side of life and can find taboo items and subjects thrilling, so feel free to go for something a little strange and morbid. If this is your romantic partner, you know they love sex and sexuality, so feel free to get something for the bedroom.
This Venus sign loves adventure, so give them an experience. Trips in particular are something they’ll enjoy, even if it’s just to the town next door, as long as they have some sort of new, fun experience. They appreciate the outdoors and being physically active, so sporting or outdoor equipment can work. They love travel, so anything travel related can do - a globe or atlas, suitcases, a backpack, a compass, maps, travel guides.
This Venus sign appreciates things that are classic, not necessarily trendy, so try to avoid the latest crazes with them. They adore antiques, something with history, so go vintage. It could be an old vinyl record or a vintage car. They also like things that will help them pay attention to their goals, so try something like a briefcase or clock. And they can have a surprising sense of humor too, so something funny could work.
This Venus sign loves to learn, so give them the ability to pick up something new - a course on a foreign language, a knitting kit, piano lessons. They also love electronics, so get them the latest and most futuristic tech toy on the market. If they haven’t seen it yet, even better! Aquarius is fascinated by the New Age and the future, so they might love getting a reading, whether it’s astrology, numerology, tarot, runes, cartomancy, crystals, etc.
This Venus sign has an artistic side and active imagination, so get them a fantasy novel, book of poetry, a painting, or musical instrument. They love the water, so a water feature, aquarium, or something they can use in the water (like bath salts) can work. They’re in touch with the Universe, so something that stirs their spiritual side can be good too. If this is your romantic partner, feel free to be as sappy-romantic as you can be.
