Holiday Gift Guide 2019: 15 Gifts for the Balanced and Elegant Libra in Your Life

Those born between September 23 and October 22 fall under the zodiac sign of Libra. People who are of this air sign are known to strive for balance and harmony, whether it be symmetry in home decor, or happy, non-confrontational relationships. They also really appreciate the beauty in all things, including art. Libras like to be easy-going but often find themselves struggling to make decisions.

This is where you come in. We have prepared you with 15 fabulous gifts that most any Libra would love, allowing you to give them things they will actually want and use, relieving them of the dreaded “should I or shouldn’t I”s that Libras go through on the regular. We included things for both women and men, as well as presents at a nice variety of price ranges.

You get three fabulous oils: agua de Jamaica, Diosa, and corazon de melon, all added with the sparkle that Libras love.

Ultra Silky Soft Heavy Duty Quality Korean Mink Printed Brown Love Roses Reversible Blanket Queen Size, by Vivalon

Before weighted blankets became popular, we were throwing cobijas San Marcos, and/or Korean mink blankets over our beds. Not only are they a part of our culture, but the heavy coziness they create is perfect for a Libra, who needs some downtime after always putting others first. This more subdued version of the usually loud cobijas will also be more pleasing to the elegant air sign.

Apparently, Libras are notorious sweet tooths, so a gift of candy would usually be much appreciated. Why not also make it candy that ties into Mexican/Chicano culture, for an added layer of sentimentality? This Classic Mexican Candy Mix Box, by My Mexican Candy, features a whopping 52 pieces of candy, including Pulparindo, Vero Mango Chili Lollipops, and De La Rosa mazapan — for way less than elsewhere online.

We mentioned that Libras love to look and feel beautiful, and of course, that includes some maintenance. A miniature beauty refrigerator is a gift that is both luxurious and super practical. He/she/they can adjust the temperature according to the fridge’s contents, and of course, throw in some mini champagne bottles to just celebrate that Libra life.

One of the corresponding birthstones for Libras who were born in October is the opal. We loved this glam yet neutral pair of drop fire opal earrings from 925usa we found on Etsy. They measure 1 1/4″ long, are finished in sterling silver, and at under $35 are totally a holiday steal.
