Libras are notoriously difficult to shop for because they’re both incredibly indecisive and opinionated. And now that they’ve spent an entire pandemic online shopping, finding gifts for Libras has become extra challenging.

As the only zodiac sign symbolized by an inanimate object—the brass scale—Libras are known for being balanced, diplomatic, and peace-keeping pals. But, with a joie de vivre take on life, people with this sign have a good eye for all things beautiful and enjoy treating themselves to the finer things in life. While your Libra friend will likely love whatever you get just because of the time and effort it took, your attempts will be double reciprocated the next time your birthday rolls around if you get it right.

The Chef’s Kiss - Flamingo Estate Harvest Shop

Even if your Libra friend is just getting into cooking, they’ll likely spend way too long looking for the ideal ingredients to stock up on. Beat them to it and get the Chef’s Kiss Set from Flamingo Estate Harvest Shop. This makes a great Libra gift idea not only because everything included is absolutely delicious, but also because the packaging is very beautiful—that’ll make a Libra double swoon.

No Fade Brow Kit - Anastasia Beverly Hills

Have you ever seen a Libra with bad brows? That’s what we thought. Like everything else about a Libra’s image, their eyebrows are also always meticulously maintained. The No Fade Brow Kit from woman-owned beauty brand Anastasia Beverly Hills is stocked with three tried and true favorites, which make a perfect Libra gift. Whether they like natural-looking hair-like texture or bold outlining and filling, this kit will help them achieve their desired look.

Invisimatte Complete Essentials - Fenty beauty

While we’re on the topic of beauty, the Invisimatte Complete Essentials set from Fenty Beauty also deserves to get a shoutout as an awesome Libra gift for her or him. Combining a blotting powder, blotting paper, and a portable touch-up brush into one cute and compact package, this Libra gift will give anyone an instant filter effect on stand-by. Rihanna even said that she has this set in her clutch on every red carpet you’ve seen her on. Once your Libra friend finds out about that, this product will cross over from their wants list to their needs list real quick. Who wouldn’t want to live like RiRi?

If you're looking to buy a present for a vinyl enthusiast, Amoeba Music is a good place to start.

A Record By a Favorite Artist - Amoeba Music

Amoeba Music is justifiably very proud to be the world’s largest independent record store. So, it’s safe to say that whatever record you have in mind from whatever obscure music artist, Amoeba very likely has it. Knowing Libras, they’ve probably made everyone around them listen to their playlist more than a few times, which is why a record from their favorite music artist makes for a perfect gift for Libras—it shows that you’ve been paying attention to their preferences. If the person you're shopping for is your partner, take them to the store and make picking out records a Libra birthday date. But fair warning, it’s going to be a loooong date.

Libra Mug - Astral Weekend

We wouldn’t recommend shopping for a horoscope-themed gift for a Libra if we weren’t absolutely sure that they’d like it. But how can anyone not like the super cool enamel zodiac mugs from Astral Weekend on Etsy? And, just when you thought this Libra birthday gift couldn't get any better, we’re letting you know that Astral Weekend donates 15 percent of the sales to non-profits—how cool is that? 

If you want to go the extra mile with this Libra birthday idea, throw a couple of coffee or tea packets into the mix from California-based, fair-trade coffee company Chamberlain Coffee. This way, they’ll think about you every time they have their morning coffee—how cute is that? 

Libra Phone Case - Wildflower Cases

Alright, we’re actually making two exceptions to the no zodiac-themed Libra birthday gift rule, and you’ll understand why when you see the super cute phone cover from Wildflower Cases. Get a case for your zodiac sign as well and you’ll have a more adult equivalent of friendship bracelets—hello cute mirror selfies!

Sure, you can give your Libra friend a super cute tote or a planner. But why do that when you can gift them a vacation?

Airbnb Booking at a Favorite California Destination

Does your Libra friend need to take a step back and relax? Say it indirectly by booking them a cool Airbnb in a scenic California locale. This would make a great gift for a Libra (and any other sign to be honest) because they like a staycation as much as the next person. Dreading the thought of having to sift through Airbnb to find the coolest available places to book? Good news—we have plenty of suggestions on where to book a picture-perfect Airbnb in Malibu, Santa Barbara, Mount Shasta, and more beautiful destinations. All you have to do is pick one, and your thoughtful gift is ready to go!

Inspire the Libra who inspires you. and give a gift that helps them grow with online classes taught by the world's best.

MasterClass Subscription

MasterClass is revolutionizing the concept of online classes. Whether it’s cooking, writing, entrepreneurship, photography, acting, or music, MasterClass probably has a course from the world’s leading experts. Why would this make a great gift for Libras, you ask? Think about the time they told you about a new hobby they’ve picked up—if you have 10 different scenarios in your mind from the last year alone, then you have your answer then and there.

Your Libra friend can learn cooking with Gordon Ramsey, writing with Malcolm Gladwell, or interior design with Kelly Wearstler. A subscription will give Libras the opportunity to meddle in many different hobbies at once. In the world of indecisiveness they live in, this Libra birthday gift is like hitting the jackpot.
