12 Thoughtful + Unique Gifts Based on Zodiac Signs
The stars can make shopping so much easier, you guys.
You've browsed the boutiques, walked laps around the mall, scrolled through hundreds of web pages and still haven't found the perfect gift for that special someone. So what's the next step? Consult the stars, of course. Sometimes they really do know us (and our loved ones) better than we know ourselves.
(March 21 - April 19) Ah, Aries — the first sign in the zodiac and easily the most competitive. These fiesty fire signs are the trendsetters and trailblazers in our lives who never settle for second best, so this print will definitely speak to their spirit. Choose from five sizes, pair the print with a frame and then give it to your favorite Ram as a reminder that they can conquer anything the day throws at them.
(April 20 - May 20) Taureans have a strong desire for security and an appreciation for the finer things in life, which usually manifests as a picture-perfect home. So what better gift for the bull than a copy of Simon and Schuster's The Essential New York Times Book of Cocktails? With nearly 500 pages to flip through, the book offers countless, classic cocktail recipes that this down-to-earth sign can use to entertain guests — or proudly display on their coffee table.
(May 21 - June 20) Represented by twins for their dual nature, Gemini are quick-witted social butterflies who tend to enjoy a night on the town just as much as a night at home. Treat them to the best of both worlds by gifting them a candle inspired by their favorite cocktail. Each one boasts intricate, gold-foil packaging and includes a cocktail recipe they can use at their next party.
(June 21 - July 22) Cancers are happiest when cozied up at home with their friends and family. A gift they'll love? A soft, woven throw that they can share with others or enjoy alone. The blanket's classic black-and-white design ensures that it'll withstand the test of time, while its cheeky text reflects one of the water sign's strongest talents.
(July 23 - August 22) Leo boasts the bold, self-confident spirits of the zodiac. What better gift for the Leo in your life then than something they can flaunt as part of their outfit? We're confident that these stylish fire signs would appreciate this sparkling ring set nestled in an ornament. Inside, they'll find five golden rings that complement their regal nature.
(August 23 - September 22) Virgos are the perfectionists of the zodiac. And with such high standards and particular tastes, Virgos are especially intimidating to shop for. So what is the perfect gift for a perfectionist? Our bet is placed on this gorgeous Williams Sonoma Marble Wine Chiller. It gifts these earth signs the ability to serve their most prized whites at their intended, proper temperature. A perfectly chilled pour to the very last drop.
(September 23 - October 22) Libras head up the good-vibe tribe and always look for peace and harmony in their lives. Gift them a reflection of their own positivity with this playful "Be Nice or Leave" flag tapestry. The cotton canvas is perfect for hanging over the bed or beside a bookshelf and will definitely earn you a big grin from any Libra pal.
(October 23 - November 21) Scorpios are known for both their no-nonsense personalities and need to control whatever situations they find themselves in. So what could be a better gift for a Scorpio than a pair of fleece gloves that they can use all winter? Each fingertip includes special touchscreen compatibility, too, so your favorite Scorpio can stay connected and in charge of their social narrative.
(November 22 - December 21) Sagittarius are known for their never-ending wanderlust and constant pursuit of new adventures — so there's a good chance that your favorite Sag already has an exciting trip on their 2020 calendar. Make sure that they're prepared for the journey ahead by gifting them this Biocol Labs Something For Jetsetters Travel Kit. Inside, they'll find capsules, tablets, sprays and liquid solutions for things like poor digestion and the occasional hangover.
(December 22 - January 19) Capricorns pride themselves on their practicality and having a strong work ethic. So what's the perfect (and totally pragmatic) gift for one of these busy-bees? An alarm clock that simulates the sunrise. This device will wake them up much more naturally than any chime ever could and ensure that they get a headstart on their never-ending to-do list.
(January 20 - February 18) Aquarians march to the beat of a different drum, it's true, so this air sign would definitely appreciate a gift as unique as they are. We suggest one of these colorblocked macrame hangers for their plant collection. The piece will complement their eclectic decor and allow them to flex their naturally green thumbs.
(February 19 - March 20) Pisces are innately intuitive, empathetic and utterly romantic, and they're often described as the dreamers of the zodiac. So what could be a better gift for your favorite Pisces fish than a bottle of perfume themed after the moon? Choose from three different fragrances, ranging from floral to fresh, and encourage them to get in touch with their inner spirits.
