Bold, energetic self-starters, Aries are full of zest. They are fiercely independent and love risk and competition, which fuels their fun-loving, high-energy personalities. "They'll even compete against themselves," says astrologer and host of the podcast Astro-Insight Kathy Biehl. Natural-born leaders, Aries are go-getters at work; at the top of the leaderboard at the gym; and probably leading the pack in a bike race or a mountain climb, too. "They can have their own anxieties, but they tend to jump in and do things, leaping and then maybe thinking about looking where," says Biehl.

With an up-and-at-'em approach to life, the Zodiac's rams (born March 20 to April 20) tend to be early risers and keep active schedules. A gift that'll brighten their early morning will put them in a good mood all day. Aries are passionate, carefree, and full of vigor, but as a result, they can also be short-tempered and impatient, "even aggressive, as they just react," says Biehl — they need to let off steam, often physically, and they work well alone.

When you're browsing the racks for an Aries, keep one color in mind: red. As a fire sign ruled by Mars, they gravitate naturally to the fiery shade. "Aries want to be trendsetters and will often rock designer labels, wanting to be seen as in the know or like they have a leg up on others," adds InStyle's astrologer Maressa Brown. (They're competitive, remember?!) Because they're so action-oriented though, they can be pretty utilitarian and no-frills in their style, she adds.

Aries definitely want to appear to be ahead of the curve when it comes to style, Brown says, so a trending style like the pillow bag would be right up their alley. This nylon Marc Jacobs version (a designer celebs are loving right now, by the way) with a rubber handle is trendy yet still utilitarian, so it won't hold them back when they're on the go.

Aries are known for being adventurous in the bedroom — after all, they're ruled by Mars, the planet of action and sex — but they're also impatient, so a powerful (InStyle-tested) vibe that can get them to climax faster is their dream toy, Brown says. Plus, they'll be happy to know that this is the exact model Poosh founder Kourtney Kardashian (an Aries!) gifted her family and friends for Valentine's Day.

Whatever form of exercise Aries is passionate about, they tend to push themselves, Biehl says. They also want to be seen as up on the latest trends, Brown notes, so if they're a runner, Lululemon's coveted new running sneakers in fiery red would be the perfect gift to scoop up for them before they sell out. After all, Aries is the sign of competition.

Biohacking while on the move is an Aries' dream, so they'd find the stats of any fitness tracker thrilling, but this Oura ring — one of the best sleep trackers on the market — can help them realize when they need to slow down, too. Worn by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston, it also doubles as an edgy, industrial fashion accessory, perfectly fitting for the sign ruled by masculine Mars, Brown says.

A Yoga and Meditation Membership

"Aries can be hot-headed and lose their patience with something like meditation, but it's the perfect activity for them to chill out and become more centered," Brown says. One great option? A membership to mindfulness studio Open, which offers unlimited live and on-demand breathwork and meditation as well as the more action-oriented yoga and Pilates that Aries loves.
