20 of the Best Gifts for Geminis That Are Charming and Whimsical (Just Like Them)

·6-min read

Gemini season is finally upon us, folks, (May 20th to be exact) so chances of you needing a gift for your inquisitive, inspirational bestie are high. But before you start snagging goodies to spoil your favorite Gem, it’s important to know what kind of gifts they’ll *really* love. So on that note, a quick astrology lesson: Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, which is the planet of communication and intellect. An Air sign, they’re charismatic, extroverted (though not always) and persuasive, and favor lively conversation, self-expression and rambunctious social events.

How does this translate to gifting, you may ask? Look for options that pair nicely with these traits: a cocktail recipe book, a wellness journal, an eye-catching phone case, unique jewels with an emphasis on duality or a duffle bag for any of their upcoming travels. In short, anything that fulfills and satisfies their desire to uncover the unknown and host a fabulous house party. Need some help getting started? We rounded up 20 of the best gifts for Geminis you can buy RN that are truly fit for their big, impossible-to-miss energy.

1. The Encyclopedia of Cocktails

Your Gemini pals get a thrill out of learning new things—and they adore a good party, too. So what do you get the liveliest bookworm you know? An encyclopedia of cocktails, obvi.

2. Girlfriend Collective Paloma Racerback Bra and Compressive High-Rise Legging

Fun fact: Geminis are represented by The Twins (whose names are Castor and Pollux in case you were wondering) so in a way, a workout set is pretty symbolic of the sign as a whole. We love Girlfriend Collective for their buttery soft, eco-friendly fitness gear that’s designed for every activity under the Sun Mercury, so we know they will, too.

We’ll make it short: Geminis are social creatures and as such, they’re never going to be far away from their phones.
