Shopping for Leo might seem intimidating at first blush—especially when they’re in their fiery fame-gobbling element, soaking up the birthday spotlight. But once you understand that the big, bold personalities of these noble beasts hide a soft, lion-sized heart under all that pomp and circumstance (and luscious hair!), you’ll practically have the Midas touch of gift-giving.

As long as your selections are thoughtful and make a glittering statement, that is. After all, Leo is ruled by the Sun—yes, the Sun—and these cats know how impactful and important their mere presence is. Don’t get it twisted: Leo reigns supreme no matter what stage they’re on, so you better believe they expect to be received as the star entertainer any day, but especially on their birthday. Luckily for you, we’ve got the skinny on showering your favorite celestial kitty with all the right gifts to let Leo know how glorious and shining a star they truly are.
