12 Gifts to Make Aries Your Numero Uno!

Mens Leather Aries Cuff

Men’s Leather Aries Cuff from The Ravens Daughter

Independent, generous, optimistic, enthusiastic, courageous … these are all characteristics that have been used to describe Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, from March 21-April 19. Aries is symbolized by the ram, which has come to represent aggression and courage, making Aries an active, energetic sign. Arians are direct, straightforward, and uncomplicated and expect the same from others. Throughout history, rams were often symbols of leadership, and as such, Aries people are said to be natural-born leaders who venture out and approach life “head-on”.

Aries are complex. They have a combination of strong masculine and feminine expressions all jumbled up together. But don’t fret. If you have an Aries in your life, there are ways to show them you love and appreciate them and these gifts will do just that!

Scrabble Typography Edition

Scrabble Typography Edition tiles detail

Scrabble Typography Edition, designed by Andrew Clifford Carpenter

Hey typography fans, here’s a gift for you!

Last year Andrew Capener had an idea. He wanted to revive an old, but loved game. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their Scrabble set would come in.

He created a prototype and won over the hearts of the people at Hasbro. After months in production, a limited edition set is now available for pre-order!

This is no ordinary Scrabble game. Oh no. It includes a beautiful solid walnut storage case with drawers and metal tile racks. The gameboard is made of six panels of solid walnut that are lined with cork and magnetized so that they snap together and create a smooth playing surface.

And the most exciting part of this luxury edition? The walnut game tiles feature a variety of beautiful fonts. Additional fonts are expected to be available for purchase after this initial release.

Time for a typography geek-out game night, friends!
