Looking for the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, but having trouble finding something meaningful? Then check out this Numerology Gift-Giving Guide!
Because numerology discloses a person’s deepest desires and natural inclinations, it’s an amazing tool that can guide you towards finding gifts that your friends and family will cherish. To start, you need to figure out their Life Path number. If you don’t know the year they are born, no worries! You can use the day of their birth to reveal a great deal about their personalities. Either way you can’t go wrong
Calculating Their Life Path Number:
Example: Say you’re lucky recipient’s birthday is August 12, 1982.
To find their Life Path number, add up all the digits of their birthday: (8) + (1+2) + (1+9+8+2) = 31. You then take 31 and add 3+1 = 4. They are a 4 Life Path.
The Numerology Gift-Giving Guide
Now that you have their Life Path number or reduced birth day, just use the simple numerology guide below to find that perfect gift.
Life Path 1 or Born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th
This creative, ambitious go-getter is always on the move. 1 is a physical number, and they tend to be competitive, (they strive to be number 1 after all), so they’d appreciate anything that enhances their athletic performance. Whether it’s awesome workout gear, an at-home Pilates set, or a gym membership, you can’t go wrong.
Because 1 people are full of so many ideas, they need help putting their inspiration into practice. Any books on Creative Visualization, Manifesting Money, or Law of Attraction would help them live their dreams.
Also, 1s have magic hands, so you might want to get them a gift certificate for a Reiki session so they learn how to channel all the juju that’s in their fingertips. They also have sensitive nervous systems so a massage gift certificate would be wonderfully appreciated. Because they are bold and love to stand out, clothes that are red or bright blue, or a one-of a kind piece of jewelry would be well loved.
Life Path 2 or Born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th or 29th
These love birds are true romantics at heart. 2s tend to be sentimental so anything that will create happy memories would be adored, whether it’s an experience or a picture frame. If you’re going to purchase anything for them to use in their home get it in pairs, since 2s like to do just about everything with other people (in particular one other special someone), 2 candles, 2 champagne glasses, 2 types of chocolate truffles, and a double feature of romantic comedies for the DVD – you get the idea.
2s have a wonderful dreamy imagination, so any type of art that has pastels, or watercolors would warm their heart. They are wonderful writers so a beautiful journal for them to write their dreams and desires, or perhaps their next novel, would be ideal.
They are very sensitive to their environment so anything that would make their home more tranquil – serenity fountains, aromatherapy lamps and oils, and some sweet music, would help soothe their senses and be a delight.
Life Path 3 or Born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, or 30th
These playful, fun souls love to laugh and make others smile too. Anything involving comedy or entertainment would be adored by them – a night out on the town, books written by their favorite comedians, or better yet sign them up for an improv comedy class.
3 is associated with words and expression, so perhaps there is a singing or writing class they’ve always wanted to take. 3s are highly creative and love to make things from scratch so anything that will foster their craft – whether it’s gardening, cooking, painting or pottery, they’ll love it.
They also adore anything handmade from other people, so you’re better off getting them a handmade piece of jewelry or art, than something that’s factory made. The good news is, 3s are so joyful and optimistic they will appreciate anything you get for them.
Life Path 4 or Born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, or 31st
4 is associated with the EARTH, so they love anything practical and functional that helps them stay organized. Anything made from the earth such as pottery, wood carvings, or stone would make them feel right at home. They particularly love their garden, so anything that adds natural life and beauty to their surroundings would be appreciated.
4s tend to be physically strong, so anything that helps them with their athletic ability, or use their hands constructively, would be well used. Because 4s are ambitious, you might consider getting them books on making (and managing) money, building their own business, and working less while playing more.
If you purchase them clothing, look for something they would wear all the time as their every day favorite, rather than something that would be for special occasions. They do love things to be practical!
Life Path 5 or Born on the 5th, 14th, or 23rd
These fun-loving people crave variety! Since 5 is associated with the five senses, they like to experience exciting new things – such as a trip to somewhere exotic, a sky-diving adventure, or a night out on the town. They’re also super creative and love to talk, so get them enrolled in a fun acting or art class where they can meet new people and learn something different.
5s are stylish and sensual so if you buy them clothes, they should be modern and sleek, with vibrant colors that suit their personality. Since they love bright shiny things, they would adore pretty gemstone jewelry or something for their home that adds vitality. They would love all gemstones such as amethyst and crystals, anything that would add magic to their lives such as oracle cards or tarot. Whatever you get make for these joyous souls make sure it has the spirit of fun!
Life Path 6 or Born on the 6th, 15th, or 24th
These beautiful beings love to make the world around them more beautiful. Anything that will bring more harmony to their home would be adored – decorative pillows, pretty vases, hand-made art, or anything for the kitchen. 6s love to luxuriate so any clothing you buy would best be richly textured and well made.
Since 6s are always doing things for everyone else, and very seldom letting themselves be supported, the best gift you can give them is a DAY OFF! Treat them to breakfast in bed, hire someone else to do the cleaning and shopping, and top it off with a spa day and you’ll have one very happy person. They also dote on their children and pets so make sure you get some gifts for the little ones in their life too!
Life Path 7 or Born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th
The magical mystical 7s are a mystery to us all! You may think you’ll never find something they will like, but it’s easier than you think! These pyschically-sensitive dreamers love anything that gives them peace, and connects them to the divine. They tend to be more esoteric than mainstream, so anything associated with divination would really spark their soul. Perhaps you want to buy them a gift certificate to a psychic or medium, or get them a deck of oracle cards, or even a course or book for them to develop their intuition.
Although they crave peace and quiet, they don’t always have enough of it – so arranging a day of tranquility for them would be a welcome treat. They have inquisitive scientific minds that always want to get to the bottom of things, so games or books involving mysteries or brain games will bring them endless enjoyment. Almost all 7s have a deep connection to the ocean, so take them on a day trip to the sea and they’ll have the time of their lives.
Life Path 8 or Born on the 8th, 17th, or 26th
8s like to live large! These ambitious, entrepreneurial people work hard and probably don’t often play hard enough. Anything you can do to pamper them would be wonderful – such a gift certificate to a massage, reflexology, or facial would help them slow down and do something for themselves. They tend to be great athletes, so any sporting clothes or equipment would be well loved.
They tend to have expensive taste (even if they don’t always indulge in it), so only the best for them – rich chocolates, fine dining, luxurious clothing made of silk or cashmere, and plush decor is the way to go.
These high-aiming 8s like to view the world from the top, so a trip to the mountains or skiing would be perfect. Since money is always on their mind, any book you give them on managing or making money will be read and dog-eared in no time.
Life Path 9 or Born on the 9th, 18th, or 27th
What do you get for the person who is always doing things for other people? These compassionate humanitarians will tell you to donate something to their favorite charity in their name. But truly, they would love a special something for themselves too. 9s are wise souls, so anything that would help them get more in touch with their intuition – be it a book, or a course, or a meditation retreat would be wonderful. They love all things divination, so crystals, oracles, runes, tarot cards – they can’t get enough of it.
They love all things travel related so art, jewelry, or decor from around the world would really speak to their heart, especially if it’s FAIR TRADE. 9s are super creative, and highly unique, so if you buy them clothes, they prefer natural fabrics with a flair in the design. Whatever you get them, these loving souls are sure to love you for it!
The best gift you can give anyone is you telling them how much you love and appreciate them. Truly, that’s the gift that keeps on giving.
