eBay Australia has partnered with the founder of astrology.com.au Dadhichi Toth to create the ultimate astrology-inspired Mother’s Day gift guide to help Australians find the perfect gift for mums based on their zodiac sign.
From fitness watches for active Aries mums to travel books for adventure-seeking Taureans, this guide will help Australians give their mums a gift they will be starry-eyed for.
‘Gift-giving can seem like an impossible task, especially for mum but astrology can help you find the perfect gift this Mother’s Day,’ Dadhichi Toth said.
‘From air fryers, handbags to candles, I’ve created the ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide to help you find something your mum will adore. Astrology is primarily personality-focused so understanding the qualities and traits of your mum’s Zodiac sign can give you great insight into which gifts will make her feel loved and appreciated.’
Aries March 21 – April 19
Mars is the ruler of Aries, a fiery and active planet. This could explain her competitive nature.
Astrology suggests purchasing a work-appropriate blouse or accessories for the home office. Consider a gift that is fitness-oriented for her if she enjoys exercising.
Toth recommends the Louis Vuitton Stellar Sneaker ($1,150.00), GUESS Medium Canvas Logo Duffle Gym Bag ($58.95) and the FitSmart Multi-Function Smartwatch ($56.95).
