Libras: Everybody loves them, but they can be very indecisive when it comes to shopping, and too self-conscious to ask for a gift! So, we’re doing them a big favor and making this birthday shopping list for them. The lovely Libra in your life adores being pampered and spoiled, so get your wallet ready!

Libra is the only zodiac sign symbolized by an inanimate object: the scales. Balance is a theme closely tied to this air sign, and these faceted, solid oak blocks bring balance to your Libra friend’s space, allowing them to create beautiful sculptures—and then change them.

Libra, the sign of justice, is an amazing advocate; get them a gift that speaks to that side of their personality. This bestseller written by a lawyer who's fought tirelessly for justice, equality and criminal justice reform would make a great gift.

Libra is an air sign, and air is an element that’s tied to the mind and communication. Your charming friend may appreciate this book on communication in the digital age, or this one on graceful expression.

Write a sweet note to your favorite romantic air sign on some cosmic stationery, or get it for them to use themselves.
