As the first of twelve signs, Aries is sometimes thought of as the baby of the zodiac signs. It falls in tandem with the spring equinox, when the day is perfectly divided between light and dark. Aries birthdays—which take place between March 20 to April 20—mark the start of longer days and a season full of fresh-start energy for all.

At its best, Aries energy is fast, fun and magnetic. But Aries are also easily bored, aren’t the most thoughtful, and their candid communication style can easily be interpreted as insensitive. When it comes to choosing a birthday gift for an Aries (or treating yourself to a little Aries energy as we enter this new astrological year), think bold. The power color here is red, the element is fire and the personality is big. Statement jewelry, luxurious candles and cherry hues are sure to light up an Aries’ eyes—before something else invariably captures their attention.
