Gift Giving by the Numbers
We all have been there, doing our last minute Christmas shopping. Finding a parking space and fighting back the crowds is nerve wracking enough but struggling to find a perfect gift for our loved ones can be exhausting.
I thought it might be perfect timing to point out that using Numerology is a wonderful way to select a gift because we tend to gravitate towards things that are a reflection of our energy. In fact, our energy is the very reason we want the things we do. Thankfully, Numerology is “Santa’s Little Helper” when it comes to shopping advice because it helps identify our energy and give us insight to what would make us happy. Without further ado, here are some shopping tips, courtesy of the numbers.
Simply look up the day a person was born. It is that easy!
Born on the 1st, 10th, 19th or 28th
Uniqueness counts to a person with 1 energy so look for something unusual. 1s tend to be quite athletic so think along the lines of his or her favorite sports equipment. You might also consider purchasing tickets to their favorite sporting event or even a gym membership. Ones are quite ambitious and are destined to be their own boss so perhaps a subscription to an Entrepreneur Magazine would be a useful Christmas gift.
For her, shop for a unique “one of a kind" piece of jewelry. It would definitely make her eyes light up and make her spirits bright.
Born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th or 29th
Your 2 person is such a romantic so a perfect gift might be a framed picture of yourself with a little love note. You could also buy a bottle of wine and some crystal glasses and add in a candle and a promise of an intimate dinner together. 2s tend to be collectors so perhaps, if you do not know, find out what item they collect and buy a new addition for their collection. A CD of their favorite music is an excellent idea and you might even want to pick out some soft vibrational music to soothe their souls.
A heart shaped necklace, any jewelry that is sentimental or a token of your love would be very much appreciated by her.
A gift of a poetry book or a DVD of a romantic movie might be just the ticket too. 2s can be a bit nit-picky about their clothing so it might be best to leave those choices up to them.
Born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st or 30th
3s tend to be trend setters so when it comes to how they dress, look for stylish and trendy clothing. They also do not mind the attention so do not fear bold colors and styles. 3s admire luxury so when it comes to decorator pillows and throws or anything for the home, think decadent. Perfume or cologne, hair products, cosmetics and jewelry all would please a 3.Think playful and fun too and remember video games for him and a DVD of a great comedy for her. If it makes you laugh, buy it and you can be sure your favorite 3 will love it.
Born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st
Think practical and sensible and you have the picture for your favorite 4. They hate to waste money and that includes yours, so make sure it is an item they can use. Gardening tools might be a good suggestion as 4s enjoy working outdoors or in the garden.
When it comes to clothing keep your choices on the conventional and practical side. 4s love to be organized so anything along those lines for the home, such as desk organizers, would be a welcome gift. Better yet, ask your favorite 4 for a list of items they would love to receive and make them extra happy because 4s love to make up lists.
Born on the 5th, 14th or 23rd
If your significant other has 5 energy, you have a wide range of options because 5s are multi-talented and have such a curious nature. They love to learn but tend to read the "cliff notes” so an ideal gift would be a magazine subscription on one of his or her favorite subjects. 5s love things which create an experience and they love travel and adventure. Consider a gift of a getaway weekend, a concert ticket or a gift certificate to a fine restaurant.
If your favorite 5 is a female, make Victoria's Secret a first stop on your shopping trip because she will surely appreciate it. 5s are quite sensuous and making her feel feminine and desired is a great gift. If all else fails, buy your 5 the latest in electronic gadgets or cell phones because 5s truly appreciate new technology.
Born on the 6th, 15th or 24th
Keep in mind warm and cozy and you will do fairly well with a 6. Anything that beautifies the home and brings comfort is a welcome gift. A delightful gift for a 6 would be a basket of home-made cookies and hot cocoa mixes, complete with colorful kitchen towels and cocoa mugs. Female 6s prefer comfortable clothing and would probably prefer a soft warm jogging suit over something fussier.
6s appreciate homemade gifts and take great joy with decorating so if you have a flair for being crafty, why not consider making your favorite 6 their Christmas gift this year. Other gift ideas include family portraits, music CDs, cookbooks and Godiva Chocolates and animal
Born on the 7th, 16th or 25th
Time to go to Barnes and Nobles and grab a gift certificate because a book is always a great idea for your favorite 7. You simply cannot go wrong. 7s also appreciate timeworn pieces that speak of simpler times so you might consider shopping at your local antique shop for that special something. 7s appreciate quality over quantity so one very special item is your shopping goal. Your 7 is either very spiritual or very scientific but, either way, probably loves anything that is challenging to the mind. If your 7 is the more spiritual type, you might find inspiration in a New Age shop . When it comes to clothing, think dignified and classic designs.
Born on the 8th, 17th or 26th
8s like to look successful so hopefully your pocketbook can stand shopping in the designer label departments. To an 8, appearances do matter. Male or female, your 8 likes expensive jewelry and top of the line apparel. I am sure their letter to Santa included the words BMW, Armani, Bose and Gucci. Can you say "Neiman Marcus"?
If all else fails, leather bound day runner or attaché will do nicely and if you have time, get it
Born on the 9th, 18th or 27th
9s have a love of the arts and is probably appreciates fine novels as well. There are many lovely coffee table books on many artistic subjects ranging from interior design to fine art. Your 9 might be one of those people who already has everything so, if that is the case, you might want to donate to his or her favorite charity in his or her name. 9s are the humanitarians of the world and would consider that a worthy gift.
