The quote says it all — fly without fear, butterfly — which suits a Sag’s adventurous tendencies and travel lust. It’s a crop top, so it’s ideal for summer outings that Sags are prone to cause they’re not ones to waste a perfectly sunny season indoors. Kim Guerra’s tee perfectly combines her butterfly artwork with bright colors making it a statement piece and a perfect conversation starter for the social butterfly Sag (pun intended).

Gerry Isabelle works in a Dominican diaspora community in The Bronx, New York and had a desire to explore early on. After studying abroad in Spain at 19, she went on to study in Argentina, Cuba, and France and has traveled to more than 40 different countries. During her travels, she noted how multicultural travelers, especially those from immigrant families, had a different experience traveling and she wanted to help. Dominican Abroad is not only a travel blog, but she also offers travel consults where callers can pick her brain about her experiences and get travel tips for specific countries or travel in general. For the travel lusting Sag, sometimes the best gift is an experience so getting them in touch with a Latinx travel expert could be exactly what they need.

6. Yesika Salgado Book Trilogy

Yesika Salgado’s poetry books take readers on a journey through love, in all its complicated glory and various form. The books — Corazón, Tesoro, and Hermosa — are empowering and vulnerable depictions of Salgado’s growth as she learns to love herself and let go of a love that no longer serves her. In a poem from the last book, Hermosa, she writes “know that I haven’t fallen into the fire/instead, I became it” and for Sags, who are known for their dualities and love of philosophy and education, that’s basically a life mantra.

Yesika Salgado Poetry Books, $15 each, available at notacult.media 

7. Bloomi – Vesper Vibrator Necklace

Sags are known for being world travelers but all that traipsing around the globe means they might have to lug around a vibrator that can sometimes lead to an awkward moment during the security check. This discreet but effective vibrator functions as a statement necklace (26-inch long)  but it’s also completely safe to use since the entire line is free of toxins and it’s made from stainless steel, so it won’t tarnish. The price is a splurge but it’s guaranteed to last and make the life of a passport-wielding Sag a little easier… and pleasurable.
