The Best Gift for Every Zodiac Sign
Finding that perfect present can be a doozy, but sometimes all you need is a little help from the stars. When you consider a person’s zodiac sign and the traditional personality traits that accompany them, gifting can become a whole lot easier. Here’s what to get (and not to get) your loved ones based on their horoscopes.
AriesThese competitive peeps love to relax and spend time in the kitchen where they can explore their love of cooking while holding court with a group of friends. They like to make a statement, and we can’t think of anything more statement-making than these adorable and colourful honey pots, which are perfect for cooking and entertaining with.
Gifts to stay away from:A game definitely speaks to an Aries’ nature, but don’t forget that things can get a little too competitive, a little too quickly.

TaurusThese strong-headed friends value touch and taste above the other senses, but they’re also real homebodies who love to feel snug and comfy. That, coupled with the cold weather outside, makes a comfy pair of slippers an ideal gift for the Taurus in your life.
Gifts to stay away from:Don’t forget that a Taurus hates feeling insecure, so while a gag gift could be fun, consider how they’ll take the joke first and whether they’ll over-analyze it.
GeminiThese twins love being social and are usually up for a good time with all of their friends, but they’ve also been known to be on the move and to sometimes feel a touch restless. If you want to gift them something practical, a cute, portable charger will help keep them connected while on the go.
Gifts to stay away from:Anything that fills up their calendars too far in advance, like an experience gift or tickets with a specific date—Geminis like to be able to go with the flow, wherever it takes them.
Portable Charger, $19.99

CancerSensitive Cancers appreciate anything involving art or hobbies, especially when it comes to activities they can do at home. And since they also love a good meal with friends, why not gift them some cute, customized herb-garden markers that will help them foster all of those interests, all at once?
Gifts to stay away from:Anything that pulls a Cancer out of his or her home is always a gamble.

LeoOf all the astrological signs, it’s the Lion that loves taking in the sights and sounds of theatre the most. They also appreciate fun with friends and bright colours, so a way to encapsulate all of that is with a ticket stub diary where they can track all of their biggest, brightest memories.
Gifts to stay away from:Leos don’t respond well to cheap tchotchkes and knickknacks, unless they come with a strong sentimental attachment to a memory you’ve shared together.
Ticket Stub Diary, $18.56

VirgoIf you have a Virgo in your life, then you probably already know they tend to be hard workers who are loyal and kind, but that they often forget to take care of themselves. Remind them about self-care with a relaxing candle, a bath basket, or a diffuser with essential oils.
Gifts to stay away from:While it’s a nice thought to grab a spa or massage gift certificate for a Virgo, they probably won’t actually end up actually using it unless you book it for them.
LibraThe Libras in your life probably love the calming and healing effects of the great outdoors, and are constantly looking for serene ways to centre themselves. The solution? A portable, travel yoga mat that folds up to the size of a yoga block but is still perfectly stylish.
Gifts to stay away from:Anything that puts practicality over beauty.
Travel yoga mat, $49.95

ScorpioThese truth-seekers are passionate about being right, finding the facts, and hanging with life-long besties. So it seems like Hygge (pronounced hoo-guh) was made specifically for them. The game is made to evoke cozy conversations with good friends, which all Scorpios want more of in their lives.
Gifts to stay away from:As much as Scorpios value their friendships, they value their privacy more. Avoid group gifts that could make them feel exposed or as though someone was forced into participating.
SagittariusEmbrace the optimistic, travel-loving Sagittarius in your life by gifting them with a cute passport wallet. Go for bold colours that speak to their extroverted nature and make sure there are organizing compartments so that they can easily find needed items—we all know these signs can be restless and impatient.
Gifts to stay away from:Anything generic, like a gift card to a chain restaurant or a confined-feeling, all-inclusive vacation. These guys want the freedom to explore, take risks, and try something new.
Passport Holder, $29.99

CapricornThese goats get a kick out of watching perfectly crafted plans come to fruition. In fact planning is an inherent part of what makes them who they are. So why not gift your Capricorn with the planner to end all planners, the Happy Planner? Part bullet journal, part agenda, and 100 per cent customizable, it’s the perfect gift for your plan-loving Capricorn.
Gifts to stay away from:Capricorns are notorious for wanting top-quality, so when gifting them anything be sure it’s of quality craftsmanship.
Happy Planner, $34.99
AquariusSpeak to your Aquarius friend’s humanitarian and cause-fighting side with a thoughtful but practical gift that they’ll love. These reusable cotton bags eliminate the need for single-use plastic and are great for produce, grains and nuts. As a bonus, they’ll also help an Aquarius do something else they love: strike up a conversation.
Gifts to stay away from:Trinkets, plastic, or mass-marketed items are definitely not going to appeal to an Aquarius.
Reusable Cotton Bags, $26.95

PiscesIt’s no secret that Pisces are deeply affected by their environment, or that they love their sleep and value their comforts. That makes a luxe bedding set or one of the latest beauty trends, silk pillowcases, the perfect gift for your tired Pisces pal.
Gifts to stay away from:Pisces typically shy away from the materialistic, and prefer presents with thought or soul.
