Aries man gift ideas


Aries men are action people. Typically they enjoy fun gifts rather than practical ones. Things they can play with or use in an activity are always a good choice.

Below are some suggested gift categories with specific examples. If you're an Aries man we'd love to hear your feedback or suggestions for things to add. There's a form at the bottom of the page.

Give him you!

I've never met an Aries man who didn't think that lingerie (or a costume) bought for yourself wasn't a great birthday gift for him.

You really can't be too bold or shocking for an Aries, so sexy is definitely preferred over anything too practical. Classy can also be good however, if it fits your personality better.

If you want to tie it in with the Aries theme then go with Red (the color of Aries) and perhaps set the tone with some candles or a log fire. Aries is a fire sign, but more to the point it brings out the caveman hiding inside each of them.


Aries men prefer rugged watches over more delicate dress designs. Pick something chunky and indestructable and you can't go far wrong. Sports watches are the best choice here.

As an example, any Aries man would marry the woman who gave him this:

"Casio solar powered atomic timekeeping triple sensor pathfinder" - this is possibly the most manly watch ever invented. Even if your Aries is a mild mannered accountant who is normally suave and sophisticated, this is the watch he subconsciously wants to be given by his woman. It's not a timepiece, it's a testimonial. This is a warriors watch!

Amazon is a reliable and reputable place to purchase watches, typically with very competive prices and a hard to beat selection. As noted, i'd urge to stay away from the luxury or fashion models, and head to the sports watches section. If your budget is higher, brands such as Tag and Omega offer similar models, but far more expensive.

Aries Action gifts!

If your Aries man is the active type (most are) then you can't go far wrong with anything related to his favorite hobby or sport. The main thing to keep in mind here is that Aries prefer 'toys' which 'do' things more than something less animate such as clothing.

As an example in this category, below is the Leatherman Charge TTi Multi-Tool. Made of titanium it withstands 133% more force than regular pliars. Giving this to your Aries man says "I recognize that you're 133% more manly than other men". That's the kind of feature which makes Aries men grunt. In a good way.

If your Aries is into a specific sport or hobby then the decision is often made easier for you. If all else fails a swiss army knife or power tools are a good generic choice. Remember though, we're looking for big boy toys here, and not creature comforts - you want something to embrace his manliness, not to impede it! (No snuggly socks with the multi-colored toes please!)

Experience Gifts

Tickets to a sports event, boxing match etc will impress your Aries man more than most other men. If you're feeling brave, a trip to some kind of extreme sport such as bungee jumping or parachuting would really impress, especially if he's never done it before. Just don’t be surprised if he wants to 'go again!' while you're congratulating yourself on surviving the first time!

Art work

For established relationships art isn't a very good gift for an Aries man (a little too inanimate), however if you've recently started dating then it can make a very good gift as it will make him think of you regularly, which as you may have seen is 90% of the battle when first dating an Aries.

For the artwork examples here I'm currently using - one advantage with them is you can get most pictures in a variety of sizes, qualities and frames (or without frames) allowing you to choose your own budget.

One facet of the Aries personality which isn't often mentioned is how competitive and playful they tend to be. If you're having trouble getting or keeping his attention, one approach is to throw down a playful gauntlet, such as this...

A more contemporary and aggresive depiction of the Aries ram (note, I joke about sheep, but Aries is a ram. Be careful to avoid goats - which are Capricorn)

For those preferring classical art, here we have a mighty aries warrior. I liked the way this artist casually snuck a sheep into the bottom right hand corner.

A more surreal and colorful piece. Scantily clad ladies always score bonus points.

General Aries man gift tips

Aries Colors

Technically, the Aries color is red. That doesn't mean they want to wear it or own it however, so I wouldn't let that influence you at all. Typically Aries men aren't subtle enough to care much about colors (design is more important), though bright and bold will be prefered over anything too dull or conservative.

Aries birth stones, star stones, month stones

I suggest avoiding these because there is no agreed upon standard for them. There are various conflicting systems which match a stone to months and sun signs. It's almost guaranteed that if you give your beloved a necklace or ring with a certain significant stone, someone will later tell them it's the wrong one!

Wrapping paper, bows etc

The good news here is that most Aries take no notice at all of wrapping materials. They want to get at the goodies inside, and won't stop to admire the bow. The only time Aries men really appreciate ribbons is if you're naked and happen to be wearing them.
