Tis’ the season to be jolly. Are you going to be the one giving gifts or receiving gifts? Some zodiac signs love to give gifts, with their perfect wraps and ribbons. Other signs would rather crawl under a rock, then put on a present presentation. What if it’s a bad present? What if they don’t like it? What do they like? Before you throw in the towel and send a boring card instead, look through our guidelines to make your holiday shopping better and easier.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Aries tend to be innovators and great at leading others. They are the first of the zodiac signs and love to be the first one to have a new gadget. When getting a gift for an Aries, you have to think limited edition, custom, or completely unique. Treat an Aries to something from an indie label or get something with their name on it. An Aries rules the head, so they are happy to rock some statement, like bright colored headphones. You could also use a special symbol to make something custom for an Aries. The more futuristic Aries would love a new iPhone or apple watch. They want the gadgets before anybody else. They like bright colors but stick to red, violet, orange or magenta, since those are an Aries signature color. They are also going to be very happy with a crimson sweater.

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)

A Taurus has a very unique, elegant taste. They only want gifts that are going to last because they are well built. They do not like anything clique or trendy. A Taurus does not like anything that is plastic. The Taurus is an Earth sign, so make sure they get things that are earthy, like stones, wood, or fine leather. They also really enjoy different aromas, so candles and fragrances are great for a Taurus. On the other hand, a Taurus is associated with the neck and throat area. Therefore, a nice scarf or even a nice little necklace would also be great for a Taurus. A Taurus tends to be a homebody and doesn’t like to leave the comfort of their couch. Therefore, anything that can keep them entertained without leaving the house is great for a Taurus. A great idea would be different baking items or even gifts for their home entertainment system. They want to be able to add to it over the years.

Gemini (May 21- June 21)

Giving a gift to a Gemini isn’t always easy. They like presents that get people talking. If it is something controversial, they will love it. They would love to hear an interesting story behind a painting they receive or a story about the designer of a piece of clothing. They would enjoy a pair of Toms or something else that has a good meaning behind it. Gemini’s want to be able to have a conversation about their presents. Gemini’s are a social zodiac sign that loves to talk to strangers. Gemini’s love their friends, so anything with a picture of their friends is sure to be a great gift for a Gemini. They love wild colors, faux fur, and strange textures. Gemini’s are associated with the hand and wrist; therefore, bracelets and rings are a great gift for a Gemini. Also, a gadget that would help them find their lost keys or phone would be great for a Gemini because they are always losing things.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

A Cancer likes to be hidden away by the fireplace when it comes to the holiday season. They are very family oriented, so giving them something intimate is going to be your best bet. They love anything to do with their family or loved ones. If they can host the family holidays, let them. It will be a win-win for everything. They would love a nice blanket for their couch or little picture accents for the wall. They want things that are going to bring their house more life. Likewise, they may also like new pans, a nice chest, or a new tile pattern for their backsplash. Cancers are associated with the chest, so a nice long necklace or a jacket with a unique collar to keep them warm would be fantastic gift idea. Another idea is the fact that a Cancer is a water sign. Treat them to a nice bath set, with bubbles, soap, salt, the whole works. They love hydrotherapy. They also love the spa.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo’s are the proudest of all the signs. They are children at heart. The finer things in life are what really gets a Leo going. A Leo is the life of the party, so make sure you invite them or come when they are hosting a party. They love out-going clothes and colorful anything. A set of tickets to a live concert or theater would be a great idea for a Leo (maybe they will take you with them). If the Leo in your life is going through a big accomplishment, make sure you take a photo, or the newspaper clipping and turn it into an amazing art piece for them. They will display it on their wall for years to come. Also, a Leo really likes to have their picture taken, so treat them to a photo shoot or upgrade their phone so they can take (EVEN MORE) selfies. Leos are associated with the back, so treating them to a nice massage at the spa is sure to make their holidays even better.

Virgo (August 24 – September 23)

The details are what really matters to a Virgo. They do not want something generic. This sign notices all the details and appreciates anything that is hand-crafted. They are unique, and quality is highly important to these perfectionists. Something funny is always a good idea for a Virgo. They have a high sense of humor and really enjoy a good laugh. They also really enjoy making others laugh. Virgos are an Earth sign, so they appreciate gifts that are natural in material. Pure “white” presents tend to be a big hit with Virgos. They like cotton t-shirts and un-colored bedding. Other than white, they also like taupes and grays. The crafty side of a Virgo really enjoys making things. Getting a DIY kit for a Virgo is always a great idea. They can be tucked away with their new craft for hours. On that creative note, they can also get a lot of fun out of cameras and typewriters. Mercury is the ruler of a Virgo, which means they are the most talkative of all the zodiac signs. Nice antiques that have a story behind them are great for a Virgo.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

A Libra will be happiest with a present that looks pretty. They are vain and cannot help it. A Libra is ruled by romance and art. A nice set of aromatic candles, beautiful art, colorful clothes, or anything luxurious will be great for a Libra. The Libra is the most materialistic of all the signs. They have great taste. A Libra would really enjoy a nice art set or ingredients to make a big dinner (hopefully for you). If you make a charitable donation in the name of your Libra, they will be forever grateful, as they have a giant heart. Also, a Libra has a huge sweet tooth, so make sure you add a large variety of chocolate to their list of gifts. Libra’s have a strong mind and like to read books. A gift certificate to a bookstore would be a great gift for a Libra, as well. A dinner for two or a pair of tickets would be great for a Libra (maybe they will take you).

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22) 

Scorpios love the color black. They love new shoes, makeup, and even leather boots. It is best to steer towards the smoldering colors when you are gift shopping for a Scorpio. If you are buying clothes for a Scorpio, try to keep it simple and modest, with a small twist and sexy and sultry. Rare finds from a local indie shop are always a great idea for a Scorpio. Scorpios know that the eyes are the keys to the soul, so they like to keep their eyes hidden. A Scorpio would love a nice pair of trendy sunglasses or a giant hat that they can hide behind. The more private Scorpios like to keep to themselves and stay home. However, they will always find a way to show their rare style. That makes cool, accent pillows, scented candles, and elegant tea sets great gifts for a Scorpio. They love to learn, so a book about human personalities would be a great read for a Scorpio because they love to learn about different humans, without actually speaking to different humans.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 20)

Sagittarius is always moving. They love to travel the world. If you can afford to give them a trip, that would be the most ideal. On the same note, you could also get them tickets to check out different places more local. If you wanted, you could also get them nice luggage set for their travels. Sagittarius love to tote a nice gym bag or suitcase. When a Sagittarius is always on the move, they love a pair of headphones and tablets to drown out the world with some music. They love things with international flairs. Therefore, pillows with middle eastern accents would be great for a Sagittarius. On the other hand, a Sag loves to read and cook, so get them a good cookbook. Truth and improvement drive a Sagittarius, so pay their tuition! They will never stock thanking you.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)

A Capricorn would rather take quality over quantity. Don’t bother filling their stocking with a bunch of small gifts, just save your money for something big. If you know a group of people shopping for this one Capricorn, then maybe you can all pool your money together and get the Capricorn in your life something HUGE! Capricorns are defined by their success in their career, so they will really appreciate any sort of tool that allows them to do their job with more ease. Leather chairs, nice pens, or a nice business card holder is sure to win a Capricorns heart. Capricorns are an Earth sign, so they tend to live healthy lifestyles. They would really appreciate a nice blender to make their protein shakes in. It is said that Capricorns age in reverse. Therefore, get the younger Caps something for their house or business. However, if you are buying for a Cap over 30, then you will be more successful with fun presents. This sign is very athletic, so sports equipment is great for them. If they are already very active, maybe consider getting them a GoPro to record all their athletic adventures.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

An Aquarius would rather have a gift that they can share with their friends. They want gifts that are interactive. If they like to drink, a nice mixology set would be great. Likewise, they would also enjoy concert tickets or a weekend rental. They would love to go away for the weekend with their friends at a ski cabin. If the Aquarius you know is into technology, video game systems, tablets, or anything customized for their gadgets will go over great for an Aquarius. Aquarius is a humanitarian sign, so they may also like if you donated to a local animal shelter in their name. Being original is sure to get the attention of an Aquarius. They have a funny sense of humor, so a unicorn hat or anything quirky will bring a smile to their face. If it makes them laugh, they will rock it for months to come. On the serious note, get them books that have to do with philosophy or sci-fi. They would love a nice chemistry set or something that helps them expand their mind. Endless journeys are sure to make an Aquarius happy.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Pisces can be an adventure to shop for. This sign likes to be dreamy and in another world. Things from a spa that are natural will be a hit with a Pisces. Pisces like to go out, so take them to dinner or to the spa. They are an Earthy sign, so they love scented bath products and yoga. This sign loves music more than any of the other signs. Make a playlist, custom for the Pisces in your life. Give them a nice pair of headphones that they can drown out the world with to make them smile. Pisces is associated with feet; therefore shoes, slippers, and toe rings are great for Pisces. This sensitive sign really likes to do their own projects. Therefore, a ball of yarn and croquet needles are also a great gift for a Pisces this holiday season.
