If you are like me, you approach the holiday season wondering how you can find the perfect gift this year for family, friends, loved ones, or significant others. You may also be looking for perfect gifts to wow office colleagues and business associates. If you are like me, you have already gotten hundreds of emails and ads saying Black Friday deals are here – buy the perfect gift now! But then there are hundreds maybe thousands of things to choose from!GET THE PERFECT GIFT
Electronics, sweaters, winter pajamas slippers or robes, on yes, jewelry or expensive perfume for the wife or girlfriend. Or maybe it’s a gift of travel – a cruise through the Panama Canal, or an “experience” – ecotourism trip to Costa Rica, a hang-gliding class, or some other shared experience. Then there are gift cards, they always work, right? But are they too impersonal? The list goes on and on. And what if the gift doesn’t fit, is the wrong color, or they have no interest in a cruise – that was something YOU thought would be fun. Someone has to start the return process, or maybe they just never use that gift card to the Italian restaurant you wanted to try but they didn’t.

If you are like me, you are starting to feel the stress as the holidays approach. What happened to enjoying the holidays with family and friends, not feeling the pressure to finding the ultimate gifts? That’s what I am hoping to do this year! Skip the stress and enjoy the best – relaxing time with family and friends.

In my humble opinion, the perfect gift has to be unique, personal, not too expensive but definitely not too cheap. It has to be something of value that your friend or family is really going to use and appreciate. And I am here to tell you exactly how to find it.

Here is where I am going to reveal to you how to find the very best present for 2019, the perfect gift!

Astrology Personality Gifts Are the Perfect Gift for Everyone.

Why Astrology?

I happen to believe in astrology, and I am not alone. Many cultures follow astrology quite literally and look for favorable signs – numbers, for instance – to choose lucky dates for important events. In western culture, millennials are turning to astrology to help guide them through life. Young people face so many hurdles these days – getting a good job and hanging on to it, trying to afford a nice apartment or saving for a down payment on a house. And that’s simply one aspect of everyday life. One of the biggest things we all really want to know about and learn is how to navigate our relationships. If you are in one, will it last? Are you with the right person, your soulmate? Are you looking for someone to be with, but don’t know where to start? Or you have tried so many online dating sites and have given up without success.

But wait! If we want to know about our relationships, there is something else we should do first, and that is to REALLY know who you are. What makes you act and think and have preferences about that way you dress or what you do for a living? Are you . . . happy? Are you at home with yourself?

Astrology Personality Portraits

Ruth May Hoffman has written a series of books, the Astrology Personality Portraits, which are a great gift for friends and family (and the perfect gift to yourself). The books cover how the Combined Signs of the Eastern and Western astrological systems reveal the true personality of a person. Each of the 12 books focuses on the 12 Chinese animals. The animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Within each book, the author discusses how that animal interacts with each of the western astrology signs to make each person who they are. These western signs may be more familiar to you – they are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Most of us are familiar with our western/star sign. If you don’t know your eastern sign, you can find a chart on the Astrology Story. You’ll need to know the year the person was born in order to find the correct book for them.

These books are very affordable and not only contain extremely useful insight into the true personality of a person from their Combined Signs, they also show beautiful and fantastic full color artwork that is tailored to each combination. Ms. May Hoffman is a well-known art patron, and she personally commissioned 6 very talented and renowned artists to paint all 144 of the combined signs, as well as each individual western and eastern sign.

Along with the gift of a book, we can also recommend gifts that feature the artwork that is personal to each person you are gifting to. You can look up their combined signs if you know their birth information – you’ll need the person’s birth year, month and day. Then you can order a poster (with the combined unique artwork and sign story key traits) which could be a thoughtful gift for a teenager or college student, or perhaps a notecard 8 pack of their combined sign painting reproduced on cards. The story of the combined sign is printed on the back and they are blank inside so can be used for any occasion.

For gifts in a higher price range, consider a combined sign print. They are available in 2 sizes. The large giclée are 22×34 inches printed on archival paper and are serial numbered limited editions. Medium prints are 17×22 inches, also on archival paper with serialized numbers. The large prints are part of a smaller run, so have a higher price not just based on the size.
