Looking for a gift for someone's birthday or special occasion? If you believe in astrology, or if your recipient really embodies their astrological sign, then you're one step closer to choosing the perfect present for them! Looking into zodiac signs is like a handy little shortcut to gifting, as it pinpoints personality traits that clues you in on the most fitting items to give.
So here, we've done some brainstorming for you. We've looked into the personality traits of each zodiac sign (as enumerated by astrologist Susan Taylor), and picked some gift items that really make sense for them. Take a look!
Birth dates: March 21-April 19
Personality traits: Dynamic, determined, feisty, impulsive
For a dynamic, go-getting Aries person, the perfect gift can be a trusty travel bag that they can just grab anytime they're going somewhere. Choose a bag that specifically fits your friend's lifestyle: are they an adventurer, a business traveler, or a fashionista? There's a backpack, satchel, or purse for them!
Birth dates: April 20-May 20
Personality traits: Strong, practical, reliable, frugal, stubborn
Our lovely Taurus friends, who have a knack for homespun living, would appreciate a sweet homage to their practical personalities. The personalized family wall art above would be perfect for their home.
Birth dates: May 21-June 20
Personality traits: Funny, curious, kind, anxious, indecisive
The sweet, fun-loving Gemini deserves a toast! How about gifting them a home bar set with just enough variety to cater to their beverage moods? Include a selection of drinks, glassware, and accessories. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even have the set personalized with a cute print.
Birth dates: June 21-July 22
Personality traits: Compassionate, understanding, sensitive, selfish
Our sentimental Cancer friends would love special mementos as presents. You can probably make something yourself, like a scrapbook or a portrait featuring them. Or you can buy a customized artwork that can tug on their heartstrings, like the custom-printed inspirational wall sign above.
Birth dates: July 23-August 22
Personality traits: Dramatic, confident, fiery, proud, jealous
Bold Leo can work the spotlight! Their matching gift should be a statement piece, whether it's clothing, accessories, or jewelry. Our top pick? A high-impact yet classy art piece, such as custom monogram wall art above (which you can customize with a name, date, and color).
Birth dates: August 23-September 22
Personality traits: Loyal, gentle, hyper-analytical, rigid
Having a Virgo friend or family member often means having a sweet, consoling confidant. Gift them with a beautiful inspirational fleece blanket, which is just as warm, reliable, and gentle as them.
Birth dates: September 23-October 22
Personality traits: Kind, balanced, gracious, naive, indecisive
Our dear Libras are almost too gracious for this chaotic world. They deserve a home relaxation package featuring their favorite calming things, be it scented candles, tea, books, or even indoor plants. Don't forget to wrap these up in a quaint, rustic gift box.
Birth dates: October 23-November 21
Personality traits: Determined, smart, focused, obsessive, suspicious
Once a Scorpio sets their mind on something, they'll move mountains to get it. So, the perfect Scorpio gift would be a handy tool for their specific interest: a FitBit for a fitness buff, a specialized toolbox for a builder, or smart accessories for a techie.
Birth dates: November 22-December 21
Personality traits: Funny, outgoing, positive, superficial, impatient
There's no dull moment with a Sagittarius! There's an endless array of novelty items and gag gifts out there that can match this zodiac sign's zany personality. But for cheekiness they can proudly display, gift them this wall sign that says "We don't hide crazy"!
Birth dates: December 22-January 19
Personality traits: Wise, ambitious, shy, stubborn
For our quiet but firm Capricorn friends, a good book would make a lovely present. Think of an author or a topic that your dear Capricorn likes, and see if you can find a special copy of one of their books. You can scour for a first edition, a rare printing, or even an autographed copy.
Birth dates: January 20-February 18
Personality traits: Friendly, smart, loyal, stubborn, extreme
Aquarius persons are often the truest friends. For their loyal, nurturing spirit, thank them with a beautiful indoor plant or two. Small succulents are particularly popular these days, as you can put them in cute little containers for tabletop display.
Birth dates: February 19-March 20
Personality traits: Kind, compassionate, lazy, oversensitive
Pisces people are so nice, and they love slow, cozy moments. For their gift, what could be nicer and cozier than a warm blanket? We pick the personalized name blanket above, not only for its snuggly print but also for its super-relaxing color and fleece material.
And if you liked the home items featured above (whether as gifts or as something you get to keep for yourself), you'll love the wide selection on GearDen.com. Start browsing, and happy gift-hunting!
