Can’t find the perfect gift? Here’s a hint: It’s written in the stars. Whether it’s for a birthday, housewarming, thank you or holiday time, gift giving can be stressful. There’s no better giving feeling then nailing a present that fits your receiver to a T. 


If your intended person is being coy or says they don’t need anything (ugh the nerve!), it’s up to you to get creative. Whether you know them well or not, the cosmos and astrology can guide you towards some excellent hints as to what suits their personality best. 


Now you don’t need to be an expert on the stars and Zodiac signs to figure out what unique characteristics suit your person, just their birthday. Whether they’re an adventurous Sagittarius or a spotlight-loving Leo, we’ve found the gift that perfectly aligns with each zodiac sign. So you no longer have to worry about what to get.


Aries Gifts

Mar. 21-Apr. 19


Aries is the trailblazer of the Zodiac. They’re independent, passionate, and like to stand out without going over the top. They need a gift that’s unique and can add spice to their life. Think of gifts that would fit right in with what they already have. Maybe a luxurious lipstick in a bold color or a playful accent pillow for their new pad!

Taurus Gifts

Apr. 20-May 20


Hardworking and driven, the Taurus in your life is likely to be your work wife. They’re also the sign of sensuality so pick a gift that appeals to their senses, as well as their work ethic. Try a gorgeous leather backpack for organizing their work and play items, or a new vinyl record for when they need to unwind.

Gemini Gifts

May 21-Jun. 20


Since they’re a bit all over the place, it might seem hard to pin down the ideal gift for the twins sign of the Zodiac. Curious and expressive, Geminis need a gift that’s an outlet for them to explore. A good idea might be a new book they’ve been dying to read or a notebook for them to jot down thoughts and doodle in.

Cancer Gifts

jun. 21-Jul. 22


Cancers have a thing for the classics; they are sentimental and will take a night in versus going out on the town. If you have a funny memory, inside joke, or a shared experience between the two of you, you might want to play that up in your gift selection. Otherwise, go for pieces they can decorate their home with, like art or a cute plant pot.

Leo Gifts

JUL. 23-Aug. 22


We love them, and they love them. Leos are our self-assured, rambunctious, and sometimes overly dramatic friends. Thriving on social interactions, making new friends and always up for anything, they need a gift that can play off them. An instant camera for taking pics they can print or a vanity mirror for selfies and makeup checkups before heading out works well for these lion-hearted spirits.

Virgo Gifts

AUG. 23-SEP. 22


By your side through thick and thin, Virgos are renowned for their loyalty. This trustworthy pal isn’t over-the-top; they prefer practical items that aren’t just for looks. Skip frivolous pieces and gift them a cool pair of headphones for when they’re in the zone on a project or a personalized monogram necklace they can wear every day.

Libra Gifts

SEP. 23-OCT. 22


An early-adopter with a keen eye, Libras are far ahead of the trends before anyone else sees them coming. They keep you on your toes with the next big thing, so beating them to the punch is key in wowing them. Try giving them makeup from the latest beauty drop, or a trendy hair accessory that they’ll want to wear immediately.

Scorpio Gifts

OCT. 23-NOV. 21


Resourceful and brave, Scorpios are unafraid of controversy, love to debate, and can be a bit intense. They like to look below the surface and have interests in the unknown and unconventional. Appease them with otherworldly intrigues like a deck of tarot cards or a graphic tee showing that showcases their off-the-beaten-path interests.

Sagittarius Gifts

NOV. 22-DEC. 21


Always on the move, we can bet that your Sagittarius friend is currently planning their next trip. They’re probably outdoorsy, and their Insta-feed is full of pics of them at national parks and exotic islands. Give them a gift to inspire their next adventure with a new pair of hiking boots or a passport crossbody bag.

Capricorn Gifts

DEC. 22-JAN. 19


In control of their destiny and very proud of their accomplishments, Capricorns care about status and high-class quality. They show what they’ve achieved through material possessions, so you might have to shell out for this gift. A luxury perfume that looks expensive on their vanity or sleek watch they can wear to work are excellent options.

Aquarius Gifts

JAN. 20-FEB. 18


Aquarius is hard to narrow down; there’s no one way to describe them. They’re vibrant individuals who shy away from labels. They have a huge soft spot in their hearts for social change, so maybe a pair of leggings made from recycled water bottles, or an eco-friendly, reusable coffee cup for ditching single use would appease their do-good nature.

Pisces Gifts

FEB. 19-MAR. 20


Less concerned with material things, Pisces wants a gift that has some emotional meaning attached to it. Deeply intuitive, they have strong gut feelings and an active imagination. They’re also artistic, so a new set of drawing pens or cozy pajama jumpsuit might be just the thing they need as they spend time creating alone.
