Starry Shopping: A Zodiac Gift Guide
Sometimes, the best way to find a gift is to let the stars guide you. Here are suggestions for gifts to please every zodiac sign — yes, even the astrology skeptic in your life.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
The first sign in the zodiac is associated with boldness and independence. Aries people know what they want and how to get it done, but they also like staying informed on the latest trends. Aim for an Aries gift that’s trendy but enables them to continue reaching for the stars, like a sleek smart watch, an elegant handbag or a boot kit to keep their favorite footwear looking like new.
And if you really want to remind them who they are, this elegant necklace will do just that.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
Tauruses are known for being headstrong providers, but they also delight in sensory pleasures, like sophisticated scents and flavors. Give them something to look forward to coming home to like a set of crystal bar tools, a candle bearing the scent of rose, or a relaxation basket.
The body part associated with Tauruses is the neck, so a statement necklace seems equally destined to please.
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
Though haters might call them two-faced, Geminis are one of the more versatile signs in the zodiac. Their social nature and knack for communication makes them a hit at parties, whether it’s a raucous rager or classy luncheon. To help a Gemini stay connected (and on track), get them a unique phone organizer bag.
Sleek pump heels will help when they get a last-minute gala invite and don’t have time to go home after work. A trio of cocktail mixes will help them entertain, and a new set of sheets will make sure they get some sleep after an eventful evening.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
They may be represented by a crab, but Cancers are domestic caregivers at heart, and have a soft spot for entertaining. They’re protective, so they don’t invite just anyone to the party, but you can help them please their loved ones with a pitcher designed for making iced tea and sets of gourmet spreads.
And at the end of the day, make sure your favorite Cancer sleeps well with a set of soft pajamas.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
When a Leo is in the room, you’ll know it. They’re theatrical, loud, and passionate, and their creative spirit can get a little fiery from time to time. Any gifts given to a Leo should honor this: think a tailored dress, a wristlet pouch, or these eye-catching boots perfect for a night out.
Virgo (August 23-September 23)
If you have a Virgo in your life, they’re probably meticulous, organized, and always anxious about everything they have to do. This travel-friendly wallet is simple but hyper-optimized for organization, and a chic notebook can help a Virgo stay productive while on the go, the old-fashioned way.
And though they might resist it, Virgos still need to wind down—this tea basket or tea infuser will help them relax.
Libra (September 24-October 23)
Represented by a scale, Libra is a sign all about balance. That doesn’t mean they’re boring — Libras tend to be people-pleasers and place high value in aesthetics, both in themselves and the world around them. This cosmetics travel bag, which contains more pockets than its sleek exterior implies, will help them cart around their pampering supplies, like these travel-size lotions and balms.
Of course, Libras aren’t only focused on themselves, so a houseplant could give them something to care for that also makes their living space look nicer.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
Passionate, intense Scorpios can be hard to nail down — and shop for. Engage their sensual side with a pair of curve-hugging leggings (Scorpios are ruled by the hips), or honor their calculating nature with a game night gift set. Don't forget the snacks!
And if you want to get truly meta, there’s always this charm, featuring the glittering Scorpio constellation.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
Sagittarians have an adventurous spirit, and usually take pleasure in traveling and being outdoors. A sleek-but-utilitarian travel backpack with special compartments for a laptop and valuables is something they can take with them wherever they go, and a state-of-the-art pair of sneaker boots will help them stay comfortable and in shape.
It’s not all fitness and utility — help a Sagittarius unwind on the go with a classic flask and beverage mix.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
Take extra care in shopping for a Capricorn, and not just because their birthday is most likely to fall near the winter holidays. Capricorns are historically guarded and work-oriented, valuing items that are classy but still practical at heart. A sophisticated watch or jumpsuit should fit the bill. For the more culinary-minded Cap, consider a box of snacks or wine, so they can get celebrate with a toast.
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
Eccentric and out-there, Aquariuses are always looking for ways to innovate and make their mark. Even their sign itself is unexpected; despite its watery-sounding name, Aquarius is actually an air sign. A colorful, over-the-top pair of earrings or a makeup palette can help establish their personality in a sartorial way.
For a more esoteric touch, this chunky charm bracelet is certainly more than meets the eye.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Pisces, the last in the zodiac, are sensitive, dreamy creatives. Give the empathetic Pisces in your life something both invigorating and relaxing, like a chocolate-covered espresso beans or a gardening kit.
The body part associated with Pisces is the feet, so a pair of cozy-yet-stylish boots can also do the trick.
Spending all day dreaming can lead to clutter. This set of trinket trays is a useful way to satisfy Pisces’s inclination towards the quirky while still giving them a practical way to store items.
