Fun, free-spirited, and fiercely independent, Aries tend to be creative, passionate, and energetic leaders who like to follow their dreams and be in charge. They are assertive, persistent, and courageous individuals who are able to push things forward with enthusiasm and persevere through pretty much anything. Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac, so they can also be headstrong, short-tempered, and stubborn about getting their way. They are go-getters when it comes to their careers and girl bosses in other areas of their lives too. When shopping for an Aries you definitely want to look for things that speak to her boldness whether it be a red lipstick — they gravitate toward fiery shades — or anything that helps her to express her bright and bold personality. For some more ideas, check out these Latinx-owned gift ideas your Aries friend will definitely dig!
MIS REGLAS tee
Aries are passionate and don’t hold back when it comes to fighting for what they believe in. They often engage in activism and aren’t silent when they are advocating for a cause. If your girl is all about reproductive rights, she would totally dig this tee created by Kim Guerra of Brown Badass Bonita.

Vive Cosmetics Luchadora Lipstick
What did I say about red lipstick? Aries not only gravitate towards bold colors but when it comes to makeup — they love going for an unapologetic fierce shade of red. It’s legit like their thing. She’d also be ALL for this product description which reads: “Because todas somos luchadoras. We are all badass mujeres and people striving for a better tomorrow for ourselves, our families, and our people. Feel extra fierce in this vivid true red shade and kick some butt!” The new packaging is fire too!

Frida Kahlo AirPod Case
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was a cancer but Aries can still deeply relate to her strong sense of self and style, her bold, fearless, and unapologetic personality and creativeness. Not only does this keep her AirPods in an organized and secure place but she’ll be psyched to see a badass artist on it — that we’re almost certain she’s already a fan of.

Aries tend to live active lives and prioritize keeping their bodies strong and healthy. Part of being healthy is being conscious of the foods you eat. For the Aries Latina who still enjoys herself a traditional plate of Latino food, help her switch out her Goya Adobo and Sazon (that are loaded with chemicals) for organic alternatives like Loisa Organic Adobo and Sazon. Her well-being and taste buds would thank you for it!
