As the seventh sign in the Zodiac calendar, Libra includes all those born from 23rd September to 23rd October. People of this zodiac are lovers of beauty, society and harmony, the last of which is indicated by the symbol of the Scales. So keep in mind these traits when choosing a gift for Libra men and you are unlikely to go wrong.
Art and beauty
A Libran, whether a man or woman, likes to be surrounded by beauty – quite appropriate for a sign that is ruled by the planet Venus who in classical mythology was the reigning goddess of love, sexuality and beauty. The Libra man in your life thus is likely to be a true aesthete, one who not only admires beauty but has a discriminating eye as well. Paintings like water colors and oils could therefore make cherished gifts for Libra men as can a particular piece of sculpture or a decorative panel with hand-carved detail. You can even look for objects d’ art that would make an elegant statement in your Libran’s living room or complement the stylish décor of his study. However don’t go for art that is too experimental or seeks to jolt the viewer out of his sense of complacency. This is because a Libra man will shrink back from anything that is overpowering and smothering – rather he is drawn to a beauty that conveys a harmonious mingling of qualities. Also when choosing an artwork, look for something from his favorite painters – make sure you don’t gift wrap an abstract work in cubes and cones for a guy who believes that John Constable’s naturescapes come closest to how God imagined the creation.
Music for his ears
It is a rare human who does not have his favorite genre of music and this is even truer of a Libran who is fond of surrounding himself with all that gives aesthetic pleasure. So what better way to remind your Libra boyfriend or husband of your undying love than to gift him a collection of his favorite romantic numbers. You can either choose an album from the vast collection of CDs in a music store or go about compiling an album of the songs he likes best. However keep in mind that this guy’s favorite music will most likely be soothing to the senses instead of something with jarring notes or excessive instrumentation. So genres like heavy rock, Goth, acid rock may be avoided while you can explore gift options from jazz, soft rock and even country; but more specifically browse through the graceful compositions of Mozart or Beethoven when choosing the ideal musical gift for your Libra man. You may dig Latin rhythms or groove to trance music but it is not necessary that the same goes for your man. And if you really want him to be happy, give him something which he enjoys.
Help him to smell divine
If you are looking for something to gift a Libra boyfriend or husband, a perfume is one of the safest bets. This is because Libra men are true sophisticates and they are inordinately careful of personal grooming. These days you can choose from a mind-boggling range in perfumes and colognes depending on what your man likes to wear and what you can afford. The house of Clive Christian sells some of the most expensive perfumes on the planet but brands like Calvin Klein and Polo have some great fragrances for men as well. While citrusy smells are ideal for sporty Aries type and musk may get going the macho Taurus lover, for your Libra man look for something that implies an air of class and distinction. You can go for something like Black Code, the best selling men’s perfume from Giorgio Armani since according to the designer himself, the fragrance is elegant and understated and bottle’s design was inspired by the ‘satin lapels of an Armani Tuxedo’.
Apparel and accessories
The Libra man is one of the best-dressed in the zodiac menagerie. While he shares with other signs like the Leo and Virgo an attention to his wardrobe, unlike the former, the Libra man is not showy or ostentatious; neither does he go to the other extreme like the careful and obsessively neat Virgo. Instead a Libra man’s personal style will be elegant and sophisticated and he will take care to be seen in the most stylish of suits or the classiest of accessories. So a great way to indulge your Libra guy would be to take him out shopping since most likely he wears tailored suits and you simply cannot pick up something from the racks for this man. On the other hand if you do wish to surprise him with a gift, choose a silk scarf in pearl gray or perhaps a Cashmere pullover but don’t forget to have it tastefully gift-wrapped.
A bottle of wine
Raise a toast to your love by gifting your Libra man a bottle of good wine or his favorite liquor. This is even more apt for this sign since they are frequently out wining and dining with friends or hosting them at their own place. Essentially Libra men are highly social beings – they are positive, friendly and easy to get along with. Those born under this sign will always be ready with the right thing to say and always know how to make someone comfortable. Perhaps this is why, Libra will figure as a regular on the guest list of the best parties and gatherings in town. So if your Libra guy is a connoisseur of wines, go to the trouble of discovering some great Bordeaux red that has matured well.
