Vivacious and curious, Geminis are known to be full of energy, passionate about a variety of interests and highly adaptable. The twins of the zodiac, people born under the air sign of Gemini are high-spirited risk-takers and avid learners.
With birthdays from May 21 to June 20, “Gemini, an air sign represented by the twins, are known for their intrinsic duality,” says celebrity astrologer Aliza Kelly. They have a reputation for being two-faced, but Kelly says that’s unfair, “Their bifurcation is a reflection of their dynamic curiosities: They’re fascinated in everything and anything, which means this playful zodiac sign often feels like it needs to be in two places at once in order to satiate all their interests!”
Ahead, with Kelly’s help, we rounded up 22 gift ideas that are perfect for the Gemini in your life.

“There are few things Gemini love more than spontaneously popping into festivals or music concerts, so support your Gemini friend in all their impulsive choices with a clear fanny pack,” Kelly says. “Not only will it comply with most venue codes, but it will also free up their hands so they can juggle … well, whatever!”
