15 birthday presents under $150 to spoil the Pisces gals in your life
Grab the tissues! We've rounded up the perf gift ideas for your fave water sign that has a lot of feelings.
Have you been in your feelings lately? Or getting the urge to spend your days listening to music, reading a book or otherwise with your head in the clouds? That's because it's Pisces season, baby. That means it's time to start thinking about how you're going to spoil the creative, dreamy and oftentimes sooky little fish in your life.
As a proud Pisces (my birthday is 19 March and I wear size 6.5 shoes by the way), I feel extremely qualified to lead you on the gift guide path. With that being said, I've whipped up an exhaustive list of gift ideas to treat the loved ones in your life whose birthdays fall between 19 February and 20 March.

The birthday girl is going to need a cute party dress to wear this month and she's bound to make a statement in this LBD (little blue dress, duh). This striking blue one-shoulder Lioness number from Princess Polly is giving us MAJOR mermaid vibes, which is the perfect match for a Pisces.
Pisces are one of the most imaginative of the zodiacs, so a colouring or art book is the perfect gift. This Art Activity Journal from Typo contains 150 prompts that are sure to get their creative juices flowing. Throw in some watercolour paints or pencils and that'll keep 'em busy until their next birthday.

Forget wearing your heart on your sleeve, it's all about wearing your zodiac on your chest. This beautiful pearl Reliquia necklace is perfect for the little mermaids in your life. Plus, you can save $90 off the original $150 RRP if you shop it on THE ICONIC right now.
I can vouch that sleeping is a favourite past time for a Pisces. Help your friend get some shut-eye and look chic while doing it with a Pure Silk sleep mask from Slip. They come in a variety of colours and patterns, but we bet that this water sign would love the simple, silvery design.

Jewellery brand By Charlotte and Sisters Village have teamed up to create these hand-drawn zodiac prints by illustrator and artist Brigitte May. Not only are they beautiful, but they also contain some lovely words of wisdom to remind your Pisces pal of the many things that make them so damn loveable.

A band tee combines two of Pisces' great loves in one: music and being sentimental. This bedazzled KISS T-shirt is super cute and the perfect statement piece for the next time your Pisces pal is heading to a gig or feeling a little nostalgic (in other words, every day).

Did you know that Pisces are one of the best kissers out of the zodiacs? Well, apparently we are and you best believe that I will be flogging that claim to fame for the rest of my life. With that in mind, the Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer will keep their lips looking lush. Rihanna is THE ultimate Pisces queen herself, so obviously she knows what's up.

Pisces are sensitive lil' souls and will jump on just about any excuse to escape reality (yes, I am reading myself). And what better escape is there than a good book? If you're not sure which genre to go down, try a music autobiography, thrilling fantasy or tear-jerker drama. Otherwise, try a coming-of-age piece of non-fiction like The Space Between, the guide to navigating your 20s written by Shameless podcast hosts Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald. It will leave your Pisces friend feeling all inspired and introspective, which are two of their go-to states of being.

Pisces are essentially land mermaids and they're born to rock the wavy hair look. Your BFF can live out their Ariel fantasy with these perfect beachy waves courtesy of the Mermade Hair Waver. If you've seen it all over Instagram and are wondering how it actually works, check out our hands-on review of the Mermade Hair Waver for all of the deets.

You can never go wrong with a candle. Our pick for your fave Pisces is the "Lost In Amalfi" candle from Glasshouse Fragrances. Infused with sea mist, freesia, lavender and lime, it'll transport your friend to another life where they're sipping on cocktails at some fabulous seaside bar on the Amalfi Coast. Considering we can't travel overseas right now and Pisces feel most at home in the ocean, we'd say this is a pretty spot-on pressie.

Pisces are partial to a relaxing night in, so a face mask is sure to go down a treat. Packed with anti-oxidants, five types of hyaluronic acid and Kakadu plum for a dose of vitamin C, the Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce mask hydrates, brightens and protects the skin. For $94.90 a pop, it's a little on the pricier side and a thoughtful treat for your empathetic Pisces pal who is unlikely to fork out that kind of money for themselves.
I know from first-hand experience that indecisiveness is this zodiac's toxic trait. Or is it? This is why a Magic 8 Ball is the gift that'll keep on giving. The next time your Pisces friend is on the verge of a mental breakdown because they can't decide whether they want to wear heels or flats, they can give this bad boy a shake and it'll do the decision-making for them.
Pisces are super empathetic and sensitive, but the downside is they can get a little caught up in their emotions. Weighted blankets can help ease anxiety and lull you off to sleep. This is the perf accessory the next time they want to curl up on the couch, pop on a movie and hide away from the world for a night.
This Wildflower phone case has "Pisces" written all over it. Literally. Blue, green and aquamarine are the zodiac's complementary colours and the airbrushed design is a total 2000s throwback, which we know your sentimental Pisces friend is bound to vibe with.
