It’s the season of larger-than-life Leo. A time for treating yourself, putting yourself first and stepping into your power after the respite of Cancer season. It’s also time to consider gifts in order to celebrate the heartwarming fire sign in your life. However, if you find yourself unsure of what to get them, our Leo gift guide may serve as inspiration.

Although you might have already read our zodiac gift guide, this season is all about appreciating The Lion. Even though these are a sign who know how to look after themselves, they definitely need to be shown appreciation by those around them, too. Here are the best gifts for the lovely Leo.

Leo (July 20 – August 20)

Zodiac symbol: The Lion
Element: Fire
Ruling planet: The Sun
House: 5th House
Modality: Fixed
Rules: The Heart

Whether these fire signs intend to or not, they're always attracting attention. Performers by nature, Leos are self-assured, confident and magnetic. As they’re ruled by the Sun, Leos radiate a certain warmth that others can't help but bask in.

As well as being larger than life, Leo can't help but wear their heart on their sleeve and have an honesty that others find refreshing. They're a loyal, generous companion who would do anything for those they love. They enjoy pleasing others as much as they enjoy the praise that follows.

But believe it or not, even Leos get insecure sometimes. The Lion loves words of affirmation to make them feel good, but don't we all? Leo can be a very dynamic sign. Despite being renowned as a self oriented sign, they also love to please others. And, despite being known as a confident sign, they can also need a lot of reassurance.

However, one thing is for certain, this sign is a powerful born leader. With their determination and decisiveness, nothing can stand in their way. Leos know who they are, what they want, and will go after achieving their goals at any cost.

In our opinion, here are the best gifts you could get the Leo in your life.

While it may be a cliche, nothing would be more suited to a Leo than a nourishing hair mask. Enriched with red henna and natural oils including jasmine, ylang ylang, jojoba, almond and coconut - this treatment from Lush will leave Leo's mane feeling soft and silky.

Looking for scent for Leo to fall in love with? This soy candle made from natural coconut husk will be a delight to their senses. A gentle aroma of sweetness and warmth, this scent is Leo all over. After the candle has burned out, the coconut husk can be repurposed for plants or a decorative pot.

Treat them to this luxurious and opulent gold facial mask that works to rehydrate and plump the skin. For a golden glow, this vegan-friendly mask contains sustainable bio-retinol from the plant Bidens Pilosa to stimulate collagen production. It also includes organic rosehip and argan oil to introduce vitamins and antioxidants to the skin.

Price: £39.99 (was £89.99)

For a hint of Old Hollywood glamour that Leo embodies so well, this vanity mirror surrounded by lights will have them feeling like a movie star. Perfect for putting on their vanity table or dresser, this is a practical gift that they can use again and again. They'll feel like a million dollars.

An addition to their makeup kit, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Sun Dipped will give them the perfect sunkissed look. With shades of 'bronzed' and 'summer,' this highlighter palette contains shades of gold, champagne and rose for a glorious glow.

To match the decadence of Leo, a silk pillowcase is something they'll certainly appreciate. With different shades to choose from, these silk pillowcases from Lilysilk are made from Grade 6A Mulberry Silk. Not only does it feel soft to sleep on, but silk pillowcases are also better for protecting your hair and skin as you sleep.

It's no secret that Leos love to be seen and heard, so bring out their inner diva by gifting them a microphone. Building on the Old Hollywood theme, this stunning retro-style microphone is suitable for both instrumental and vocal use so they can take the stage.

A gift set containing healing crystals selected especially with Leo in mind. Including Tiger’s Eye, Carnelian, Citrine and Black Onyx.

Who are Leo most compatible with?

Compatibility is all relative in astrology to the bigger picture, with the wider natal chart giving more insight into whether two signs are compatible or not. While sun signs provide a sweeping view of compatibility, looking at Moon, Venus, Mars or Mercury signs between charts gives a better indication.

The Moon governs emotions, Venus governs what we look for in a relationship, Mars rules passion and sexuality, and Mercury rules communication. Therefore, these planetary aspects may be of more use when looking at romantic compatibility.

Generally, Leo may find themselves compatible with their fellow fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius which makes for a fiery match. However, if they're needing someone to balance them out, Cancer may also provide a surprising match. Although Aquarius is Leo's opposite sign, a Leo and Cancer relationship offers a Yin Yang dynamic that can be fairly complementary.
